Christmas makes relationships suffer, a new study has found.
According to website Divorce-Online.co.uk, a quarter of UK adults believe that the pressure of the festive period affects their relationship.
In addition, two thirds believed that the new year can encourage people to look for a change.
Bristol residents are the most likely to feel the pressure in the run up to Christmas, with more than a third suggesting that they were allowing problems to build up.
When asked, 32 per cent of people agreed that a “minor incident” was more likely to end their relationship than a major one.
