At the commencement of a binding relationship, such as marriage, two individuals form a compact which typically includes a reciprocal, exclusive commitment to one another. They agree to love and support each other through the highs and lows of their life journey together. As with most of us, they are eventually faced with difficult personal and relationship issues. When we are confronted by turmoil or challenges in our relationship, before calling it quits, we would do well to remind ourselves of thecommitment we made at the beginning of the journey. This sculpture depicts one character pulling with their left arm while the other pushes with their right arm. This is meant to symbolize the push and pull of the heart and mind as the couple reevaluates their commitment. I believe one should honor one's marriage commitment and not allow fear to diminish or destroy that covenant. Working through the tough times together will usually strengthen the bond and allow the journey to continue—"until death do we part." Mutual Commitment was created in honor of that sacred bond and commitment.
