Family – grrrrrr
A week from today is Thanksgiving in the States, followed by Christmas and New Year’s around the globe. For many that means a lot of travel, a lot of family, and usually a lot of extra work for someone.
Please realise that “the holidays” are almost universally harder on women than on men. This is especially true for a woman with a couple of younger kids. Depression in women hits highs over the next two months, as do stress and exhaustion.
Yes, help all you can to take some of the load off your bride, and be ready to say no to various invitations to save her sanity, but in the end, you probably can’t even it out. Just realise she will be more over worked and more tired than you will, and cut her a lot of slack. Also, be quick to defender her, especially with your family.
