Day of Domestic Disturbance

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Wed Aug 30, 2006 10:50 am

Today's the day to pick a fight

Wed Aug 30, 6:05 AM ET

LONDON (Reuters) - Feeling grumpy? Well, today is the day couples are most likely to have an argument, according to a relationship expert.

The theory is that post-holiday blues combined with the end of the summer and no more bank holidays until Christmas conspire together to make August 30 the day tempers will fray.

Paula Hall, a sexual and relationship psychotherapist, said the arguments can be explained by a simple equation: Post-Holiday Depression + Financial Strains - Lack of Light/Domestic Chaos = Relationship Stress.

"By August 30, tensions have reached an all time high, as couples realise their summer is well and truly over," Hall said.

"This often manifests itself in bickering and needless arguments which is not healthy for the well-being of a relationship."

This is obviously a British thing... not American. We have "vacation," not "holiday" and we don't get nearly as much time off as those Euros do. Plus, we have Labor Day coming up so that is a day off for everyone. I would think right after then is the time people start getting pissy about no more days off and the end of the summer.

Even so, we also have the Thanksgiving holiday which gives most people a couple days off before Christmas and something to look forward to in the fall.

Yeah, this article is faulty and irrelevant to us Yankees.

It was her fault. And I hate women too. But it sucks because after 3 full years, I thought I had found one that I didn't hate. Outlook is not looking so good.
