RESUMEN
Las relaciones de pareja entran en riesgo con la llegada del verano. Más allá de ser
una percepción de la calle, la frase se sustenta en una base empírica: el aumento de
consultas por este motivo en los gabinetes psicológicos, "obedece a un aumento de la
interacción de la pareja al deshacerse de la rutina diaria y al incremento de las
tentaciones debido a cierta relajación social".
PALABRAS CLAVE
Pareja, crisis, verano.

SUMMARY
The relationship of the couple is at risk with the arrival of the summer. This
problem, more than being an ordinary perception lays on an empirical basis.
Consultations for this reason in psychological offices "have to do with an increase in the
interaction of the couple once the daily rutine disappears while temptations seem to be
stronger owing to a certain social relaxation."
KEY WORDS
Couple, crisis, summer.

The increase of infidelity and childish discussions put the couple at risk in the summer.
Consultations about possible splits increase during the summer period. Infidelity is not

worthwhile once we see the benefit we get out of it, and the destruction it brings (Pérez
A, 2000). Professional life and the care we dedicate to the children and home controls
the quality of the couple´s life (SESPAS, 2006). When we arrange some free time this
can be noticed very clearly. The couple has to be aware beforehand that violent
discussions can arise for the least silly thing and must take measures. - by not feeding
back that subject and avoiding the discussion. Increasing the frequency of sexual
relations of the couple in summer contributes to create a climate of complicity. It is
neccessary to avoid misunderstandings and possible temptations, tied many times to the
relaxation of social customs with the arrival of the summer.
In my opinion,"professional life and the care one dedicates to the children and
home controls the quality of life between the couple (Moneo F, 2006). Also, once
overcome the phase of being deeply in love which may last up to five years, one
discovers that the person ones is with is not the ideal one had imagined but someone
different, each one with their virtues and defects (Spivacow M, 2005). Assuming this
reality is no doubt a crucial challenge for the continuity of the couple. However, this
does not always happen and it is described from the psychological point of view that
after five years of relationship the risk of the couple splitting is much higher.
Conflicts arise when one can not talk about this because their is no
coummunication (Berenstein I, 1990). We must take into account the importance and
influence of the family in our society, which affect sometimes personal relationships.
The arrival of summer with the relaxation of the customs and the provision of more free
time reveals this reality in some cases in a crude way."
"In the same way, the relaxation of customs and the life style that take place in
summer increase the chances of infidelity, which altogether lead to an increase in the
rate of separations in this time of the year" (Asociación de divorciados y separados de
España, 2006).
Suggestions to try to avoid this situations: "the couple must be aware beforehand
that arguments may arise for the silliest things ("should we have mayonaisse in the
salad?)". If we can notice this reality before it explodes, it is convenient to bear it in
mind to try to identify why something like this is happenning and try to reduce the
problem".
Either way, the argument sometimes cannot be avoided. " In such cases it will be
of big help if one of the two people involved avoids the fight. If there is no answer to
the complaints from the other part, the feedingback of the conflict is avoided, something
important as time will show that such argument was childish".
Moreover, the summer is a unique oportunity to favour the development of the
couple. We must realize that being married or living with our partner, does not only
consist of taking care of the children, and since we have more time now it is necessary
to share it, to increase indications of afection, and to show each other more loving and
caring."

Therefore "we have to accept the differences of the other and assume that it is a
law of life; that there are no two people the same. Showing your affection to the other
will be an essential proof to let the other one know that you love him,/her , no matter if
it is the ideal or not" (Puget J, 2006).
Other suggestions are the increasing of sexual activity of the couple now that
they have more free time. In most cases this will reinforce the links between the couple,
reducing complications and tensions in an important way.
In the same way we advice that " one must observe an extreme care in the
relationship with other people, especially when they are from the opposite sex. It is
necessary to avoid misunderstandings and possible temptations linked many times to the
relaxation of social costumes with the arrival of the summer".
In a graphic way we must say that an "affair" is much more destructive than
pleasant. If we put in a balance what it can offer and the damage it can bring to the
couple relationship, there is no doubt that the person who carries on this way will end
up losing.Infidelity is not worth it once we see the benefit we get out of it and the
destructive power it brings, not only to the couple, but to the one who comits it himself psychic unbalance, depressions, anxiety crisis - who ends up looking for psychological
help, because he/she feels that a couple of hours of extra pleasure will end up with years
of love in their marriage, couple. They feel guilty". It is then when psychotherapy
sessions for the couple with an expert for a period of a year, one hour per week
(advisable),can reconstruct the family.
