Couples Commitment Code… Is a promise to stay together, come what may and if one decides to leave, the other partner goes with them – partners for good.

A couple’s level of commitment to this “Couples Commitment Code” is an idea of the mind that bears witness to the thought that when it comes to your relationship, there is no possibility that the love energy you feel together could ever feel the same alone. This idea greatly influences the tone of the relationship.

“Commitment is not a very “sexy” word or concept but it probably has more to do with making marriages work than anything save common values. Commitment is a choice to give up choices. Although this might at first sound limiting, it actually brings great freedom and depth. No longer does the committed person need to weigh which person or way of life will bring more happiness. Once committed, all one’s energy goes into making this commitment work. No longer are other possibilities a distraction.” ~
