Holiday Season Relationship Advice

23 December 2014 By In Relationship Advice

Dealing with a divorce is difficult; being on the heels of a divorce with the holiday season approaching can be even more difficult. If you and your spouse have recently gone through a divorce, figuring out the logistics of who will celebrate where and with whom will require some communication and compromise. If the two of you have children, where they spend their days will be most important, as their young needs and desires don't fit neatly into a parental separation.

If your split with your partner has left the two of you in an amicable place, it would be good to plan the children's days first. If Dad has the children on Christmas Eve and Mum has them on Christmas day, you can do the opposite arrangement on New Year's. If out of town family is in town for the holidays, allow the kids to spend the day with them and their evenings with the other parents. Depending on the age and maturity level of your children, too much shuffling around may disrupt their day, so take all things into consideration.

As far as you, the divorced adult, remember that splitting from a partner also affects their family, who has loved and known you throughout the time of your marriage. If you are close with your ex's parents and want to spend time with them, make arrangements to celebrate the holidays with them the day before or after. Parents understand, and ageing parents especially will appreciate that you have chosen to remain in their lives. Spend time with your own family and allow their presence and love to keep your spirits high during the holidays, as it may be a difficult time in your post-divorce process.
