Stonewall Jackson takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Jackson 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. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Stonewall Jackson and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Jackson will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
