Army Marriage Project

army marriage project


The Army Marriage Project is an ongoing longitudinal study focused on understanding the challenges of being an Army family and finding ways to support healthy, happy marriages in the Army. About 1,300 people are currently in this study, which has been going on since 2007. The University of Denver has received additional funding from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to continue this research until approximately 2016. This means current participants will continue to be offered paid questionnaires until approximately 2016 (assuming funding as expected).

Individuals who are currently in this study complete a series of confidential questionnaires, which take about 60 minutes each and include questions about personal and relationship functioning. Individuals in the study are paid each time they complete a questionnaire.

This study is being conducted by the University of Denver Center for Marital and Family Studies, one of the most respected relationship research centers in the world. The team has been working for over 30 years to learn more about what helps couples and families thrive, and has published over 130 books, articles, and book chapters based on this research. If you have questions about the study, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions, the other links above, or contact us.

We are no longer enrolling new participants in the Army Marriage Project.

However, if you are interested in participating in Army couples research with compensation, the Relationships Among Military Personnel (RAMP) Project at the University of Colorado Denver is currently enrolling participants. The RAMP Project is an online survey study, studying the relationships and psychological health among male Army Soldiers and their civilian wives or girlfriends after deployments.
