This paper examines the couplehood of people with Schizophrenia, while attempting to identify unique elements characterizing
the partnership of the Schizophrenic population in comparison to that of a healthy population. The research will use the love
relations questionnaire aimed at measuring the three dimensions of couplehood - commitment, intimacy and passion.
The research population included 30 subjects with Schizophrenia that are medicinally treated and that were hospitalized
at least once in a psychiatric institution, and 30 subjects without any psychiatric diagnosis, sampled by means of the matching
method, constituting the control group.
Differences were found in all three dimensions of couplehood that were examined - commitment, intimacy and passion. We
also found a significant difference between the groups in the gaps between average perceived (real) relationship, and average ideal
relationship - in dimensions of passion and intimacy (but not in commitment).
