NUMBERS of South Yorkshire couples asking for help with their relationships have soared since the New Year.

Ruth Sutherland, chief executive of Relate, said: “We expect this week to be the busiest ever as people get back to work and think about their relationships following the Christmas break.”

The charity says couples should focus on their relationships when they make resolutions, instead of the usual commitments to fitness and dieting.

Suggestions include ‘gratitude lists’ to remember what you appreciate about your partner and a ‘date night’ once a week, “just like it was when you first got together”.
