According to research by travel agency ebookers.com, over a quarter (26%) of British women blame alcohol for any arguments they have with their partners while on holiday. While it’s important for couples to air their issues from time to time, arguing after drinking rarely leads to constructive problem solving.
To try and stop these conflicts arising, here are a few tips:
- Talk about your problems when sober.
- Break the routine. If routine dictates that you and your partner get through a bottle of wine most evenings, why not break from it and cut back a little?
- Go for a walk, to the cinema or to the gym together.
- Eat while drinking. Food can slow down the rate your body absorbs alcohol.
If you don’t want to cut alcohol out of your diet, make sure you drink responsibly and if a sensitive topic is discussed, agree to discuss it at a later time.
