47: Getting Clear About Commitment

Have you ever considered that you and your partner might have different definitions of commitment?

It’s essential to understand what commitment means to your other half because if you don’t know their definition of commitment, how can you show them that you are committed to them? That’s why misunderstanding each other’s definitions of commitment can lead to conflict. 

This episode is all about getting on the same page when it comes to commitment. We’re talking about responsibility, duty, devotion, and obligation, and how those things relate to commitment. 

Are you ready? It’s time to get clear about commitment. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Mine and Jon’s definitions of commitment
  • Why it’s important to put others first sometimes
  • How one partner could feel single while the other feels married 
  • Millennials’ definition of commitment and how it differs from Jon’s
  • The importance of looking beyond physical attraction 
  • Why threats in marriage are not helpful
  • The impact of words and beliefs on relationships
  • How vulnerability creates the strongest bonds in a marriage
  • The commitment exercise every couple needs to try
  • The consequences of crying wolf in your relationship
  • The commitment question every couple should ask each other 

I want you and your spouse to share your definitions of commitment with each other and for you to ask your spouse how you can show your commitment to them. Take the first step to get on the same page and see the positive impact it has on your relationship.
