Couples’ Daily Experiences across Life Domains

We are looking for long-term couples to participate in a three-week survey examining people’s daily experiences across life domains: work or study, relationships, sex life, and personal growth and wellbeing (e.g., goals, self-care, hobbies).

Participation involves a lab session (30 min online assessment + 2 hours in-person), a nightly online survey for 3 weeks (around 10 min each night), and a follow-up online survey eight months later (30 min). Couples will receive approximately $200 worth of vouchers as a thank you for full participation.

You are eligible for this study if:

  • You and your partner are either working or studying;
  • You are living together most of the time;
  • You’ve been together for at least 6 months;
  • You are sexually active (have been intimate in the past month);
  • You do not have children.

Participation in this study is open to couples of all sexual orientations.
