Avoid Holiday Infidelity and Seasonal Cheating

Ah, the holidays! Cooking, presents, parties, family – all these festive preparations and responsibilities associated with this time of year can easily wear on your current relationship. This added stress in both of your lives can manifest itself in increased arguments, frustration, even disrespect. It’s important to keep this high-pressure time in perspective and not forget to appreciate your partner and the life you have built together. One of the worst and most destructive ways to act out your holiday unease is through an affair. The holiday season is fraught with pitfalls that can easily challenge a relationship, but if you learn to watch out for the signs that suggest you or your partner might be straying, you’ll be able to dodge the “betrayal bullet.”

Emotions are Elevated

The stress of holiday expectations – cooking, party preparations, gift giving – can cause elevated emotions during this time of year. When people feel stressed, they tend to release that pressure in whatever ways are available to them, which often takes the form of emotional outbursts aimed at those around them. As patience diminishes with approaching deadlines, it is easy to snap at the person closest to you. If you find yourself arguing frequently with your partner, you may not want to spend as much time with them. A weaker person may turn their time and attention towards someone new who will lavish them with attention and appreciation, someone with whom they do not have an emotional investment, and hence no expectations.

Another emotional stressor can be the expectations and relationship problems you may have with your family. As holidays are the time of year to be with family and pardon any past offenses, you can easily run into a situation where you are trying your best but failing to handle the problems between you and a family member. Understandably, this too can instigate a yearning for a connection with someone outside of your familial circle, someone who can listen to your woes and comfort you in contrast to turning to your partner, who may, for example, tell you that they “have heard enough about all of your family drama.” Sometimes the mate can feel like their hands are tied in this situation, as they feel more like an outsider to their partner’s family problems. It is important to remain close to each other through these holiday stresses, allowing these challenges to strengthen your bond and love for each other, instead of pushing the two of you apart.

Alcohol and Inhibition

During the holidays people tend to drink more, which lowers inhibitions. A common by factor of lowered inhibitions can be sex, which is just not an acceptable excuse for your company holiday party indiscretions, at least as far as your significant other is concerned. In fact, as the holidays bring with them many parties spiked with champagne and spiced eggnog, as well as potentially sexier clothes and dancing, there are more temptations to be dealt with. Don’t let all those mimosas you had, and your fleeting attraction to that guy at the party, be the end of your relationship. Know your limits and invite your partner to the parties – that way, when you’ve had a few cups of spiked apple cider, you can enjoy taking your significant other home and celebrating your love together.

A Time of Reflection, Transition and Change

The holidays and the end of the year bring about a type of personal reflection. Has the year gone as you wished? What will next year bring? Are you happy with what you have, or do you want a change? These reflections can add stress and unhappiness to the holidays, especially if part of your dissatisfaction and frustration stems from your relationship, and you feel that you cannot talk this over with your partner. Seeking comfort in another’s arms may be tempting to some people in this situation. It is important to keep communicating with your partner, no matter what the circumstance or outcome. Together, you can decide whether you two want to work through your problems or go your separate ways. Remember, “tis the season to be merry” — not unmarried!

    Gina Rose I couldn’t agree with you more!

    There are so many expectations around the holidays that emotionally can be difficult to live up too.

    Yet, even when things may not be exactly how we want them to be, we can be reminded during the holidays that we are loved by the people around us.

    This allows us to be grateful for their presence in our lives….even when they may come with a little drama.

    Love & Light!

    Hi Alina, As we live in this fast pace society, too often we tend to run faster than our feet can carry us, we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life we forget to be in the moment, there will always be some kind of issue, but it is how we choose to look at it, that makes all the difference, it can greatly serve us to learn this holiday season to be in the moment, enjoy those around us, just be, slow down to just be…..

    Blessings and gratitude hugs!

    The holidays are ALL about the last paragraph…..reflection, gratitude,transition, and change.

    Couples, and people in general, need to remember that it’s not about family drama, rushing about and buying ” stuff ” and getting drunk at the family holiday table.

    What’s so sad is that the holidays do not have to be ” high pressure “……it’s not engraved in stone anywhere that I’ve seen anyway.
    WE create the pressure…it’s not due to, or because of , the holidays…it’s us,… and our actions in the way that we go about preparing for and celebrating the holidays that create the stress and pressure.

    May your holiday season be filled with peace and happiness…….AND…. may you take the steps to make it so.

    Blessed Be )O(
