Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart's Fight Over Holiday Plans Sounds Familiar

Love & Learn 17

Apparently, this means they're spending the holidays together, according to Life & Style at least ...

Rob made plans to spend Christmas with his family in London, but "Kristen wants him to stay with her in L.A. He’s torn," claims the tabloid's source. Interesting.

Sure, the story could be completely fabricated ... But I wouldn't be surprised if there's even a little truth to it, since this is definitely a common situation couples find themselves in this time of year!

With my family spread all over the country -- Northwest, Midwest, and Florida! -- and my husband's family up here in NJ and also in Florida, we have always grappled with who to spend the holidays with. In the past, I've visited my family solo for Thanksgiving or Hanukkah, often due to work schedules or air fare. But going together is always the goal ... albeit not always an easy or realistic one. But logistics aside, compromise is key!

Figuring out "who gets what holiday" is probably one of the most major times when couples have to negotiate and compromise ... Not only with one another, but with their respective families. I know couples who bring both sides together for one big fat, Rockwellian celebration, while others say one partner's family gets Thanksgiving, and the other gets Christmas. Even then, one party can end up feeling "torn," as Rob reportedly does.

Complicating matters, apparently, Rob's family doesn't trust Kristen. Life & Style's source claims, "They can't stand Kristen; his family is terrified that he'll never get away from her. They think she's bad news, but there's something about Kristen that he just can't resist." Ha ... Wow, poor Rob. If this is true, he's in for some holiday family drama! But hey, let's be honest. Who isn't?!

How do you compromise with your partner over how you spend the holidays?
