RELATIONSHIP/CODEPENDENCY ATTITUDE TEST

Have you ever wondered why relationships for you are so difficult? Perhaps you believe you keep finding the "right" person but it just doesn't seem to work out? Maybe you think you might be Co-Dependent? Take the time to complete the short test created on relationships and where you stand on them or outside of them if that seems to be the common theme.

Here is a sample of a "marriage-attitude" inventory you might find interesting. There are reflection questions. Throughout my years of counseling and research, several key issues have come to the forefront regarding couples. I have taken some of the most poignant issues and put them into questions to consider about your spouse. This is a good way not only to learn about your mate or potential mate but also about yourself and how you look at relationships. I offer clients and students these questions to ponder and discuss:

TRUE    FALSE



2) My partner should know my needs, desires, and ambitions without me having to tell them because we've been together long enough:

TRUE    FALSE



3) I expect my mate to like my family and friends. They should if they truly love me. They are a part of the package deal:

TRUE    FALSE

TRUE    FALSE
