Family Comes First – But Which One?

by Michelle Bianco | www.coachmichellebianco.com
As the holidays are fast approaching one big debate that tends to come up with couples is the dreaded decision of whose family to celebrate the holidays with.
Communication with your spouse is key! Do not avoid discussing the topic – set some time aside where you can discuss this without any distractions and really focus on having a productive conversation.
Be sure not to make commitments to either side of the family until you and your partner are on the same page with what you want to do.
Have options for celebrating the holidays and decide together how and where you want to spend the holidays. There is the option of alternating holidays between both families; you can celebrate the holiday the week before or after the actual holiday.
No matter whomever may host the festivities, remember the holidays are about family and making memories.
