Christmas Divorce

Recommended Posts

I see that Sky News is doing its bit for the fesitive feeling by doing several items on divorce rates soaring after Christmas.

I suppose, rather than waiting till after Christmas, they are trying to give some pointers on how to avoid rows over Christmas and so perhaps avoid divorce.

Bah! Humbug!

For some people Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a massive family row.

I had thought that this was just on Eastenders but then somebody told me that nearly every Christmas one or other of her parenst had ended up walking out.

I feel sad for the families that can't resist a row over Christmas. My extended family are cooped up in my sister's mansion (I'm not revealing the value!) from Christmas Eve till the end of Boxing Day and although we occasionally bicker, we never fall out. It's a golden opportunity to catch up on news and have a good laugh together.

Well, things were not going well for the wife and I a few weeks ago, I had completely given up talking to her. Given this and the fact that she`d told me that she was leaving me in march I thought I had nothing left to lose Anyway, not being `validated` appears to have put her into a state of panic !

Ah well, I`ve still got my cat (she`s so cute!) and `dreams` of getting a new motorbike !

I avoid divorce by not getting married.

That is why divorce is not the right word......breakdown or breakup of relationships, any relationship.....

That must be confusing her and annoying the feck out of her.

Yes well as I said she did say she was leaving me...

Although I`m living a completely stress free life I need to avoid an EastEnders type situation.

Definitely. Best of luck in achieving your goal. You won't be, sadly, the only one with such an ambition this Christmas.

Yep....

These are indeed dangerous times. All I can advise it to be in a state of constant awareness and maybe It would be well to advise our other halves to do the same on this very night.

I'd be careful showing too much affection to the cat before the wife moves out for good.

Christmas usually involved a blazing row between my parents when I was growing up. Too much interaction between spouses is usually a bad thing. One of the happiest couples I knew always went on separate holidays. Their rationale was they spent so much time together so why on earth would they want to go on holiday with each other.

No...this is definitely my cat. When I picked her up she was completely wild. The wife said `you`ll never tame her`. Umm....she was very wrong.

Treat the wife the way you treat the cat, it might tame her as well. :)

Well I must admit what goes on in my wife`s mind is completely lost on me. (as I`ve said she goes to the nuthouse once a week for sessions)

A new development ....she just came in and gave me dounuts and chocolates. What does this mean??

It means she's managed to source some cyanide. Don't touch them.

Just had a run in with my father. To be fair, he is a jerk.
