When you married your spouse, you may have thought that your bond was an everlasting one. Years later, the stressors that accompany children, employment and everyday living may have begun to take a toll on your relationship. As the holiday season approaches, you have found that more tension has entered your relationship. After one bad spat, you may have begun to question the strength of your marriage bond. Of course, after you ring in the New Year, it is possible that you and your spouse will work to repair the wounds to your relationship.
