For most people, a new year is a herald of new beginnings. They want to indulge in their resolutions and their dreams.

Part of those dreams is eliminating relationships where they felt like they were being held back.

Christmas can be a relationship killer. Especially if you used the event to introduce your now former significant other to your family.

When you realised how hard it is for them to get along, you then decide to end things.

During the holidays, there is a lot of activity. Travel, parties, family events etc. A lot of them require coordination.

Over the year, you and your bae have been fine because most of your plans were independent of each other's decision making. However, having to make plans together with your partner shows that your relationship may not be as excellent.

Being broke puts anyone under stress. But when you add a nagging partner to the January mess, it becomes a bit hard to deal with a relationship.

After the exhaustion of the holidays, growing pains from the onset of brokenness from January, stress after returning to work, it's hard to have to keep up a sex life. Because of this, most couples find it easier to just break things off.
