Relationship Reading Corner
Here are some articles on commitment. We think that you'll enjoy them and find some useful ideas.

What do we mean by commitment? "The difficulty is that we’re making promises about behaviors and outcomes, but ignoring the process necessary to achieve that goal."

"Commitment may be considered a relationship skill because the abilities necessary to make and keep commitments must be learned, practiced, and refined just like those for effective couple communication (see Wiley 2007 in this issue) or any other relationship skill."
