Commitment can be clear when we say statements like, “’till death do us part,” but the way in which we show
commitment to our partner is much less clear.

If you are reading this blog, not only are you committed to strengthening your relationship, but you are committed to your partner. Maybe you formally committed to each other by accepting a proposal six months ago or by exchanging vows at your wedding many years ago.

Maybe it’s something less formal, but just as meaningful. You might even have an unspoken commitment to your partner. Either way, you have some grit and passion in you to push through and achieve the long-term goal of a successful relationship.

We’ve all heard the cliché “actions speak louder than words,” and in the case of commitment, it may be true. The discrepancy between what we say and what we do comes when we fail to see how our partner chooses to
display their commitment.

It’s crucial to understand your partner may be trying to show you they are committed, and you may not be seeing it. Your partner’s level of commitment and your opinion or observation of their commitment could easily be two different things.

Commitment is the foundational agreement spoken or not of a relationship stating, “no matter what
comes our way, I will always be here for you.”.

Consider exploring what you consider commitment with your partner this weekend.

Take the Couple Checkup

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.

For more information on the use and analysis of the Couple Checkup or to simply use the tool, please contact: or call today (02) 9520 4049 #couplecheckup #strongerrelationships
