An accountability partner is a person who coaches another person in terms of helping the other person keep a commitment.[1][2] The term is a neologism and has gained relatively wide use since the 1990s.[3] The term is often used by Christians where the accountability partner helps a person adhere to a moral commitment, such as refraining from viewing a pornographic internet site. [4] It was originally used in connection with weight loss programs in the 1960s.
