The Completion Stage Checklist

Am I in the Completion stage?

By Sarì Harrar and Rita DeMaria | Ph.D.

You may be in the Completion stage if:

  • The “building” stages of your marriage — kids, career, saving for the future — are over
  • Health and happiness are more important issues today than career and child-raising
  • Fighting between you and your spouse has declined substantially in recent years
  • You’ve been married more than 25 years
