Why Holidays Can Lead to Divorce

Mark Christie, local family law solicitor with Stowe Family Law, comments on how family holidays can lead to strains on relationships: “It’s a sad but unavoidable fact that the dream family holiday can be, for some, a living nightmare. Juggling work and looking after the kids or having finances stretched by that big family trip escalates conflict. Sometimes it’s the anticipation of the holiday itself that can be the problem. People often build up unrealistic expectations for summer holidays which aren’t then matched by the reality of spending long periods of time with their partner, while trying to keep the children happy and entertained.”
