The holiday fight: You hardly ever see your family, but your husband gets moody when he has to spend the holidays with them, so you end up feeling resentful.
How to avoid it: Though you may want to suck up as much time with your loved ones as possible, don’t plan on spending 24/7 with your family if you want to keep the peace in your marriage. “Build in escape time where the two of you can go for coffee, talk, repair and clear the air,” says Dr. Meunier. That way, when your husband inevitably says something to your brother that pisses you off, you know you’ll have a time to talk it out. This will help you get through the holidays without heaping it all on top of each other at once, and ultimately exploding in front of your family.
