The Research Is Clear
Why The Couple Relationship
Research is clear: Work life and Home life are not two distinct sectors. Work life influences home life and vice versa. This reality has strong implications for business organizations. Perhaps the greatest of these implications is that if work life negatively impacts home life employees will leave their jobs costing organizations millions in turnover costs and hamper their capacity to attract the most innovative talent. Gaining a reputation as a business organization that “doesn’t care” about employees and is a “burnout” factory is detrimental to the organizations bottom line.
Research is also clear that a central relationship in the home is the couple relationship. To repurpose a well know adage: If the couple relationship ain’t happy nobody’s happy. If work life is straining the couple relationship (factors that strain a couple relationship are: hours worked, stressful expectations, negative relationships with superiors and co-workers, a lack of growth opportunity, poor benefits, etc) both home and work will be impacted and if home life if strained work engagement, creativity, and productivity will suffer.
Business organizations are awakening to the idea that being a company that cares means being a company that cares about employees home life. Specifically, being a company that cares about employee’s couple relationships. Organizations need buy-in and commitment not just from employees but from their partners if they want to retain top talent, be productive, and foster innovation in the workplace.
At Create Your Couple Story we know how to meet an organization’s need to care for their employees by caring for their couple relationship. We provide research-informed, psychologically sound education that teaches couples how to connect and stay connected.

This is not therapy but it is therapeutic. We have taken the foundations of much of our “in-person” work with clients and we have put those foundational principles into approachable, understandable, language giving you unprecedented value and a therapeutic experience.
Single parents are working hard. So hard. Single parents would likely benefit from some of these tools and resources, and the struggles of partnered and single parents are not all the same, neither then are the supports and resources they need. Single parents need and deserve resources and support too but because the issues that come up in partnered relationships are so different, the support also needs to be specific to each group. (Erin was raised by a single working mom and knows personally and deeply the tremendous labor of love that goes into the single parent life.). We deeply respect the single parent, but our education and resources center on the couple relationship but single parents need resources and support as well.
Pandemic life has shined a bright spotlight on the difficulties partnered parents face trying to balance work and home life. We have been in this situation ourselves, forced to choose between work and family and every single time we were able, we chose our family. We believe companies should not have to lose the valuable employees that are parents, we believe companies simply need to learn how to best support their partnered parents.
