2. A relationship has a stronger bond when both people in the relationship work toward resolving issues whether it be with kids, finances, management of home, etc. Do you solve problems with your significant other [s.o.] or are you the real and only problem solver.
3. Research shows resentment mounts in couples who have an imbalance in household chore duties. If you live with your s.o. do you both do chores and have an equal amount of chores in the household?
4. Marriage in the U.S.A. has changed over time from being for survival (home, food), to companionate love during most of the 20th Century, to 1960s to present being about personal fulfillment. Is your relationship meaningful to you for companionship or is it personally fulfilling?
Older couples with a lifetime of shared history, couples who are not particularly prone to passion in any area of their lives, and those who are dealing with serious life situations may be perfectly content with companionate love.
On the other hand, for many people, life is not complete without passion. Those couples may be at more risk for straying, seeking out passion and novelty with new partners while retaining the comfortable companionate relationship they have at home.
