Negotiating and Renegotiating Commitments
One of the most difficult areas for couples can be focused on commitment. Commitments can take many shapes and forms, including a commitment to the relationship itself, a commitment to having children or a commitment to supporting a particular career choice or life path. We all have fears and concerns about making commitments on some level. Working with a couples counselor can assist both members of the couple to voice their concerns and fears about what the commitment will mean to them, and how it may change their relationship.
Also assistance can be given in negotiating responsibilities that may result from making a new commitment within the relationship. For example, if a couple decides together that one of them will begin a new career, it may change family and home responsibilities for both of them. Working with a couples counselor can help you to reach clear and workable agreements.
