Attending a holiday party with your ex

During the holiday season, people face many stressors, including dealing with others who they would rather avoid. Some people have it especially tough during this time of year, such as people who run into their ex at a celebration (or even attend the celebration with someone even though they have already broken up). There are various other reasons why this can happen. For example, a married couple may work for the same employer and see each other at an office party during the holidays. If you are facing this situation during the holidays and expect to run into your spouse, it is important to be prepared.

Some couples may live apart but decide to attend a holiday celebration together even though they have already broken up. These situations may be especially likely to take place when children are involved. Some family members may not even realize that your relationship has ended, so you may have to prepare yourself for questions and discuss your circumstances. Moreover, you may run into a number of problems when it comes to communicating with your former partner. For example, they may be hostile, attempt to humiliate you at some point, say things that upset you or ask you questions that make you feel uncomfortable.

You should always try to minimize conflict when it comes to dealing with your ex, whether you are in the middle of a family law challenge (such as a custody dispute), are approaching the process of divorce or have already been divorced for years.
