Relationship Rescue Manual: Relationship Satisfaction Scale

In this blog, I will share with you my Relationship Satisfaction Scale (RSS).  There are five questions for you to rate your level of satisfaction with your relationship.

You might also ask your partner to fill out their level of satisfaction as well.

Even strong relationships need to stop and take stock of how things are going; my RSS is an easy tool which gives a couple the tools to see how satisfied each partner is with the relationship.

Rate Your Partner


Read the statements for each item and place an “X” on the line that best describes how you think you partner would respond.  You may wish to make extra blank copies before starting so you can use this exercise to evaluate your progress.

What couples can do is to make a plan to deal with issues that are raised as a result of taking a look at their levels of satisfaction and then in two weeks retake the evaluation to see things are going.  The sooner problems are identified and dealt with the easier they are to fix.
