Whether you work through your CoupleCheckup results in its entirety or section by section, articulating outcomes now, being mindful of them along the way will help guide you and your partner to find success through the journey.
Accountability (or lack of it) can be the reason you reach (or fail to reach) a particular outcome. Write down a few outcomes and put them where you and your partner can see them. Maybe it’s a shared calendar or on a note taped to the bathroom mirror. Keeping these visual reminders present during the time you are working through the CoupleCheckup Discussion Guide will help remind you of the energy you are putting into your relationship.
Use the outcomes as inspiration. When you create your own, make sure they are realistic and clearly stated.
If you are unsure of what outcomes to commit to, take some time with your partner and talk through what you want to get out of this experience. Increased satisfaction? Greater understanding? More support? Enrichment?
Reflect on the outcomes you’ve set for your relationship and consider how you each will contribute.
Revisit your list desired outcomes when you are done working through the CoupleCheckup Discussion Guide. Assess where progress was made and consider articulating relationship (and family) outcomes to continue the momentum.
If you and your partner ever feel overwhelmed by your results or the ensuing discussion, we encourage you to seek out professional support. Call us.

The CoupleCheckup 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 CoupleCheckup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
