We know couple relationships are quite complex and take on many variations such as dating, engaged, cohabiting, married, blended families, and older couples. Each of these relationship stages presents a very unique set of challenges and opportunities for couples. Each Couple Checkup is dynamically customised to match the appropriate core content and categories to the relationship stage.
Relationship Stage is assessed by asking couples to identify if they are dating, engaged or married.
- Dating couples are evaluating the quality of their relationship as they attempt to determine their level of commitment to a future together.
- Engaged couples have said “yes” to a lasting level of commitment and are caught up in wedding plans and beginning to combine their lives together.
- Married couples struggle with the daily challenges of running a shared household, parenting, and managing finances.
The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. These conversations restore insight and understanding about one another.
The Couple Checkup can help to revive a relationship and increase intimacy.
The Couple Checkup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the Couple Checkup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
