Holidays often to lead to relationship frictions
While holidays are usually thought of as a relaxing time, in some cases they could lead to a divorce.
According to a new survey from match.com and expedia.co.uk, 42 per cent of Brits fight with their partners while on holiday and one per cent have applied for a divorce on their return.
A further 12 per cent have split up while on holiday as couples fail to compromise on issues of money, socialising and the inability to forget work.
Kate Taylor, relationship expert at match.com, said that holidays can become a time of tension as couples are thrown together for long periods.
"Expectations are often blown out of proportion as both people feel the holiday has to be perfect or it's a sure sign the relationship is on the rocks," she explained.
About 62 per cent of women said that spending quality time together was important on a holiday while only 57 per cent of men said it was important to them.
