Couples Daily Life Study

Description:  How do relationship dynamics and daily social life relate to relationship quality and well-being?  This project, directed by Megan Robbins, Ph.D. in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside, in collaboration with The LGBT Community Center of the Desert, examines how these factors influence each other. We are recruiting same- and opposite-sex couples that are currently married or in a marriage-like relationship.

Am I eligible? If you and your partner are 21 years of age or older, have been married or in a marriage-like relationship for at least 1 year, and are in generally good health, you’re likely eligible for this study.  Call or email us to find out more (see below) and to set up an appointment.

What does my participation involve?  We will meet in our lab on UC Riverside campus, at The LGBT Community Center, or at another convenient location to conduct 4 study sessions. During the first and third sessions, we’ll ask you and your partner to fill out some questionnaires about your relationship quality and well-being, and ask you both to wear a digital recorder over the weekend that records short sound bites throughout your waking day. You will have full control over the information you provide to us, and can delete anything you do not want to share. During the second and fourth sessions, you will return the recorder and complete measures about your experience over the weekend.

Why would I participate?  We pay you for your time and participation. Your involvement will contribute to research aimed at understanding how social interactions relate to relationship quality and well-being.  We have flexible scheduling hours.

I might be interested, but want to find out more.  What should I do?  Call or email us any time, or leave a message below.  We’re happy to tell you more about our study and schedule an appointment at your convenience.
