Lessons from Kim Kardashian

If your relationship is still intact, give yourself a pat on the back.

Why? Turns out Halloween is a common time for breakups. That's because it's the "last stop before the holidays," according to this article.

Apparently, it's not cool to break up with someone amid the warm, fuzzy feelings associated with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

If a relationship seems headed for disaster, people will often sever ties around Halloween to avoid the romantic pressure that comes with the holidays.

So maybe there was some real relationship science behind the fact that Kim Kardashian's divorce news made headlines on Oct. 31.

I prefer that explanation over TV ratings.
