The study involves completing 7 surveys—one survey every three months for a year and a half. Each survey is roughly 60 minutes long. We require that partners complete each survey within 2 weeks of each other. In each survey, you and your partner will privately answer questions about your thoughts, feelings, and activities in your relationship.
