In this paper, we obtain a common fixed point theorem by employing the notion of g-reciprocal continuity in symmetric spaces. We demonstrate that g-reciprocal continuity ensures the existence of common fixed point under strict contractive conditions, which otherwise do not ensure the existence of fixed points.
