Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who is eligible?
A: Married couples for whom both spouses are both at least 18 years old and can both read/speak English fluently. Given broader study goals, female participants must also be less than 40 years old.
Q: I'm engaged but not yet married- can I still sign up?
A: Yes, we love it when engaged couples contact us! We can sign you up, and your participation can officially start right after your wedding date.
Q: Can I participate without my partner?
A: This is a couples study, meaning that both members of the couple need to be willing to participate.
A: No, we welcome couples of all kinds! That will help ensure our study findings are representative of people in general.
Q: Is this study only for heterosexual couples?
Q: Do we have to participate in person?
A: Yes, but only one time when you first begin your participation. After that, your participation is completely online through online follow-up questionnaires. Please note that if you do not live in Stillwater, we may offer you a bonus payment to help offset the cost of driving from out of town.
