London, Aug 16 : Planning a vacation with your partner in the month of August? Well, in that case, better watch out, or you could come home with your love life in ruins.
According to a new research, August is the month when you are most likely to be dumped by your partner.
Researchers have found we make crunch decisions on our romantic life while lying on the beach or by the pool.
During the rest of the year, say the researchers, people are so stressed by work and caring for the children they don't have time to stop and think.
But during their summer holidays, many couples spending time together realise they have nothing in common and are trapped in a duff relationship.
"We frequently receive feedback from customers asking for a 'you're dumped' card," The Daily Star quoted Andrew Gibson of The Card and Gift Company which carried out the research, as saying.
"The number getting in touch has shot up, suggesting August is the time when they consider ending their relationship," Gibson added.
