Out with the old

Typically, people like to start the New Year with new resolutions. While going on a detox or becoming a member of your local gym is completely normal, there’s another common resolution that might surprise you.

New research found that January is the prime season for break-ups.

The findings show that more than half of couples who split up this month said the time of year was a deciding factor for their decision.

Other reasons for January break-ups included the depressing Irish weather, family pressures and wanting a fresh start – New Year, new me, right?

From the stats, it’s fair to say that those who wanted a fresh start clearly didn’t waste any time. The study revealed that 48% of people were already in a new relationship before the month was out.

The second most common season for break-ups is December. Thank God that’s ages away – we might have just dodged a bullet there!
