The Couple Burnout Measure is a 10-item test that reveals the extent of "burnout" in your relationship. Burnout refers to a condition characterized by physical, emotional and mental fatigue, a diminished feeling of achievement, a sense of detachment and a lack of involvement. Couple burnout is usually seen in long-term relationships that are emotionally demanding or involve some degree of caretaking responsibilities.
This test has been used by numerous psychological researchers to investigate the experience of burnout in couples, what predicts burnout and the influences burnout can have on romantic relationships. It is especially useful in developing various interventions targeting multiple relationship-related stressors.
