Being a student can be a very demanding, but fulfilling experience. This can be especially true when a student is in a committed relationship. At times you may feel that your relationship is working harmoniously with your life, or you may find the relationship causes additional stressors. Trying to fill the two roles in your life can often be confusing and frustrating. Take a moment and choose a quiz to find out more about how your relationship is doing.
