Study

A message from a Doctoral Student at University of Virginia -- if you could help her out that would be great!



Engaged volunteers needed! I am looking for volunteers for a study of attitudes towards marriage and parenthood among engaged couples. The study consists of a 25-30 minute online survey. To qualify for the study, you must be 20-35 years old, live in the U.S., and plan to marry or have a commitment ceremony within the next 365 days. You and your romantic partner must not have children, and this must be the first marriage for both of you.


You can:

-Help a doctoral candidate;

-Increase the pool of scientific knowledge;

-Support research on marriage and families; and

-Spend some time thinking about your relationship!


I am working with Dr. Charlotte J. Patterson, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. This study has been approved by the University of Virginia Institutional Review Board #2009025800.


If you and/or your romantic partner are interested in participating or want further information, please email me at survey.couples@gmail.com. I will send you a link that you can use to access the study.


Thanks!

Hi,

Thank you so much for your help in advertising our study during this past year! We are still in the process of recruiting participants and, since a new wedding planning season has begun, we were hoping that you might be willing to help us once again by posting a notice on your website. We are hoping to finish recruitment as soon as possible so any help you could give us would be most appreciated. The text for the online post is below.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
