Utah Relationship Equality Study

 

Researchers at the University of Utah are gearing up to launch a historical study on relationship well-being leading up to the Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality in Utah. We are interested in finding individuals in same-sex relationships who are willing to answer brief questions online about their health and relationships. 

 


 

The Utah Relationship Equality Study

The LGBT community has made incredible progress toward marriage equality, and the court cases currently waiting to be decided this year may offer even greater victories right here in Utah.  This creates an extraordinary scientific opportunity.  We have the potential to demonstrate that marriage equality is not just good politically, it's also good for the health and well-being of LGBT individuals and their families.

So how do we plan to prove this?  This is where we need YOUR help!  We plan to have individuals provide periodic information about their mood and their own same-sex relationship as we approach these huge upcoming changes.  You can do it all from the comfort of your home by answering the questions online and via text messaging.

This will be the first study to document how unfolding marriage equality legislation affects our community.  But we can't do it without you.  Please click the “Request Info” tab and we will contact you with more extensive details on participation.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone who….

  • Is currently living in the State of Utah
  • is 18 years of age or older 
  • is in a same-sex relationship of at least 6 months

What Does Participating Involve? 

  • In the coming weeks, we'll invite you to complete a series of questions online about your relationship and health. These questions should take about 20 minutes to complete. 
  • About once a month, we'll send you a short text message, asking you to answer a few very short questions about your day (these will take less than 3 minutes to complete). 
  • In about 6 months, we'll reach out to ask you to complete another series of questions online. 

Will I Get Anything For My Time?

  • We'll enter anyone who participates into a drawing to receive one of four $100 prizes. Each time you complete an online or text questionnaire, you'll get another entry into the drawing. 
  • This is a momentous opportunity for our community to learn about the health benefits of marriage equality. We hope you'll be willing to share your voices and your experiences so we can help further LGBTQ equality here in Utah and around the country.
