Derek Jacobi takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Jacobi a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it.

However, Jacobi will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
