For all the lucky ones out there…

24 Mar

A pretty lady dropped this into my inbox this morning, asking to put it up in my blog. The text is self-explanatory.

I don’t know if any of my (7) readers fall into this category, but if there IS anyone who this applies to, holler so that I know you exist!

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  I will send you a link that you can use to access the study.

    Well I’m married and not in the US. So I’m out. Even though I don’t have kids and don’t plan to anytime soon and this is our first marriage. Who’d want to get into marriage again? Yikes!

      It’s “LGBT Marriage Research’

      I didn’t know you and TS were a gay couple… Hmm!
