The temps aren't the only think chilly about the winter time. It's also a frosty time for relationships. In fact, there are more break-ups in January than at any other time of year.

Relationship experts estimate that as many as nine million people consider breaking up with their significant other after New Year's.

Why is January break-up month?

  • From Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Year's, couples spend a lot of time together -- and get on each other's nerves.
  • Also, people don't like to break up during the holidays, and often put break-up plans on hold until afterwards.
  • On top of that, January is the time of the year that people give their lives a review. Since it's an opportunity to make a fresh start, it's an opportunity to get rid of partners that just aren't working.

Just Asking ... Were you the dumper or the dumpee? If you were the dumper, why did you do it now -- and not months earlier?
