Can Halloween Predict a Divorce?
There can be many signs that a marriage is in trouble at any time during the year, but holidays tend to make those signs more obvious. According to The Huffington Post, one such “relationship fortune telling holiday” is Halloween.
The holidays are a time for couples to celebrate together, so if there are problems in the relationship, they will most likely be more noticeable during these times. When Halloween comes around, married couples usually follow a pattern of tradition, whether it’s decorating the house, hosting a Halloween party, taking their children trick-or-treating, or even not celebrating. If these traditions change for unknown reasons, it may be time to sit down and look at the relationship before it is too late. Some Halloween signs that could mean trouble in the marriage include:
- A sudden change in routine, such as no longer decorating the house;
- A change to wearing more suggestive or revealing costumes; and
- Separateness and/or detachment, such as spending Halloween separately or being inattentive and/or unaffectionate during gatherings.
These signs don’t necessarily mean that the marriage is falling apart, but they could point to something amiss in the relationship. If you are married and have begun noticing similar signs, during the holidays or not, it may be time to have a heart-to-heart about how you both feel about the relationship. Ignoring signs of trouble will only make the trouble worse and divorce inevitable.
