今天是英国夫妻“吵架日”
[ 2006-08-30 14:45 ]

One psychotherapist says the end of summer signals the beginning of bickering.

Feeling grumpy? Well, today is the day British couple are most likely to have an argument, according to a relationship expert.

The theory is that post-holiday blues combined with the end of the summer and no more bank holidays until Christmas conspire together to make August 30 the day tempers will fray.

Paula Hall, a sexual and relationship psychotherapist, said the arguments can be explained by a simple equation: Post-Holiday Depression + Financial Strains + Lack of Light/Domestic Chaos = Relationship Stress.

"By August 30, tensions have reached an all time high, as couples realise their summer is well and truly over," Hall said.

"This often manifests itself in bickering and needless arguments which is not healthy for the well-being of a relationship."

觉得烦躁吗?据一位研究夫妻关系的专家介绍,今天是英国夫妇最容易吵架的日子。

对这个说法的具体解释是,假期后的郁闷、暑假即将结束,再加上圣诞节前再没有任何假期,这几个因素合在一起会让人在8月30日这一天容易发脾气。

两性及两性关系治疗师保拉·霍尔说,这个论点可以用一个简单的公式来解释,那就是:假期后的郁闷+财政危机+日照减少/繁杂的家务事=关系紧张。

霍尔说:“到了8月30日这一天,夫妻间的关系达到空前紧张状态,因为他们意识到夏天真正结束了。”

“这通常表现为争吵和没有必要的争论,这样的争吵会伤害到夫妻间的感情。”
