January is the most common month for ending a relationship because people want a fresh start, reveals new survey.
The study was conducted by money saving brand vouchercloud.com. They questioned 1,881 men and women in Britain aged 18 and over, who have gone through a relationship breakup at some time in their lives.
"Christmas is a stressful time, which can often cause friction in relationships. Combine this with the January blues and a lot of couples may lose direction. It's no surprise that many struggle to get through this period," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Matthew Wood, Global Sales Director, vouchercloud, as saying.
According to the survey, some of the factors that contributed to relationship problems include family pressures pulling you apart, depressing weather, and financial problems.
Continued impact of Christmas stress was the most common factor.
