Christmas and New Year is a great time of the year ... especially for marriage counselors and divorce attorneys. Don't get me wrong. I'm not against Christmas. In fact, my entire family looks forward to the holidays every year as a time that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, and we reflect God's love for us by giving gifts to others. But Christmas is a litmus test of a marriage's health. Good marriages flourish during the holidays, but Christmas is the straw that breaks the back of many bad marriages. On January 2nd, divorce attorneys and marriage counselors alike are usually swamped with new business that will keep them busy until Spring.
