Is Your Partner Dependable? 

One thing you should ask yourself when seeking out a potential five-year partner is – are they dependable? Dependability, on both a physical and emotional level, is a key factor in who could make for a good five-year partner.  

On a physical level, young couples should be able to rely on one another for financial stability, for staying on top of household chores, for picking up groceries, etc. Both partners should be prepared to do the work that is necessary to maintain everyday life. On an emotional level, dependability is about being there for your partner. Couples should also have a sense of security about how their other half feels and thinks about them. If your partner leaves you questioning their feelings and level of commitment, then a serious commitment such as The Five-Year Marriage® likely isn’t going to work. 

What are some signs that your partner isn’t dependable? How can you know if you, yourself, offer the dependability your partner needs? Couples can read about this and more in The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage Paradigm
