Relocation Study

Our study tracks couples who are going to relocate for one partner’s job in the near future—a growing trend in our fast-paced, mobile world. The study involves an online survey that will be distributed prior to couples relocating, during the move (i.e. brief weekly surveys), and after the relocation (i.e. 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after). Given the longer-term commitment we require in this one-of-a-kind study, we want to emphasize that couples will be compensated appropriately for their valuable time and efforts (approximately $15/hour per person).

Participation requirements:

  • Are at least 18 years old (both partners)
  • Part of a romantic relationship (married or cohabiting)
  • Currently live together
  • Anticipate they may relocate for one partner’s job/school sometime in the upcoming year

At this point, we are interested in compiling a list of individuals who think they may undergo a relocation sometime in the next year with their romantic partners and who are interested in participating in our upcoming study.

If you meet our criteria and are interested in participating in our study, we ask that you email us at with the subject line “Interest in Romantic Relationships and Relocation Study”.
