A hotel chain has promised families a stress-free solution to hosting the in-laws over Christmas in Great Britain, Sky News reported.
Holiday Inn is offering a special room rate for mothers-in-law during the festive period, so that families can have a break from each other.
Relatives can check their partner's mother into a room and gain a 25 percent discount.
The rate will be offered to in-laws between December 23 and 29, and extends to all of the firm's 194 Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express hotels across the U.K.
Relationship expert Kirsten Gronning said incidents of arguments increase fivefold during the festive celebrations.
"Christmas can be an extremely stressful period, especially for the family planning and catering for it," she told Sky News.
