According to a recent study, January is the most depressing month of the year. In fact, a study of 1,000 couples in Britain found that in January, couples fight for more than eight minutes a day and have 20 arguments during the month, compared to about 15 fights in the other months. If you ask us, 15 is way too many arguments already! But it's understandable why more of them would happen in the dreary month of January: It's that dead-zone winter time. You're exhausted from the holidays, and spring and summer are still so far away. It's friggin' cold. You're both bored and overworked, not a fun combination.
Have you been fighting more with your partner this month? Do the seasons affect the state of your relationship?
