This study examines marriage relationships in young adults. This study is being conducted by Hadi Yassin under the supervision of Dr. Laura Kamptner. You will be asked questions about different aspects of your marital relationship such as communication, sexual satisfaction, love, and your early experiences. This study has been approved by the Department of Psychology Institutional Review Board Sub-Committee of the California State University, San Bernardino.

This study should take about 35 minutes to complete. If you are a CSUSB student, you may receive 2 points of extra credit in a selected psychology class at your instructor’s discretion. Although there are no expected risks or direct benefits to you from completing this questionnaire, your participation will be a great assistance in helping us to better understand marital relationships in young adulthood.
Of course, your participation in this study is entirely voluntary. You are free to withdraw your participation at any time during the study, and you may refuse to answer any specific questions with no penalty.
