In our last post, we were discussing Halloween and a Huffington Post article that posited an interesting theory. The author suggested that a couple's behavior on Halloween can predict how their marriage will fare over the next year. She gives a few examples of changes in Halloween celebrations that can lead to divorce.
Halloween is supposed to be spooky and scary, but in a good way, right? A Huffington Post article last week suggested that a couples' Halloween is a fairly accurate indicator of how the marriage will fare in the coming year. If the holiday is still fun, a couple should be okay. If Chicago's forecast of 39 degrees and clear skies is met by an arctic blast indoors, that couple could be headed for divorce in 2012.
When parents split up, it can be scary for kids. There are so many things a couple contemplating divorce or legal separation can do to make the transition easier for their kids. Halloween, the scariest time of year, is a great time to remember the basics: It's okay for kids to be spooked by ghosts and goblins this time of year, but they shouldn't be spooked about how their parents will act when it comes time to trick or treat.
