Sample text

Once couple is established or recognized, helping the partners in therapy is much simpler because they do not question the existence of their couple. Commitment to being a happy couple becomes paramount, as opposed to commitment to personal happiness. By the way, it has been our experience that couples who are happy as couple are usually happy as individuals as well. Once commitment to the couple entity is established, the next task is to teach the partners how to meet the stated goals of their couple.

In this sense, working together as a team and maintaining a cocreating couple is not a 50/50 proposition; it is a 100% /100% endeavor. Each partner in the couple takes 100% of the responsibility for the outcome and is 100% committed to doing whatever is best for the couple as a whole, no matter how challenging. In this way, the couple cares for their relationship as if it were their child. The partners or "caretakers" of the couple do not think of abandoning their creation just because they disagree on what to do.

Over nearly 3 decades of treating couples, we have observed some familiar, recurring, and recognizable patterns of behavior. We see these not only in the individual partners, but also in the style and characteristics of the couple interactions themselves. It is a useful operational model to view couples as having distinct styles of relating over time. Several authors have described common functional and dysfunctional patterns in relationships (Scarf, 1987; WeinerDavis, 1993). It is consistent with the notion that a couple represents an entity distinct from its component members to assert that the couple has a cohesive set of traits or characteristics of its own.
