Commitment is about foundations for me. It's about people mutually applying themselves to achieve or build something. It means they will they weather failures with the same unity they celebrate the successes. It's about a level of trust that provides safety and comfort to take on other challenges knowing someone will be there to support you. This could be as deep as having children or as surface as simply having someone to always talk to. I also see commitment as carrying certain obligations.

I'll admit that I see people who get married as more committed then those who aren't. I think that is why I believe in relationship hierarchies. The married people always seem more committed and much more resilient than additional relationships.
