Study Shows Six Questions Assess Marriage Strength

Is your marriage on the rocks or burning bright with the flames of passion?

A new study found answering six questions may provide the answer.

Dr. Paul R. Peluso, Associate Professor at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida analyzed findings from 778 men and women and found that the six-question Relationship Pleasure Scale (RPS) provides a “psychometrically reliable and valid” measure of qualities that assess marital satisfaction.

The Relationship Pleasure Scale is published by the nonprofit PAIRS Foundation, an industry leader in marriage and relationship education. For a limited time, visitors to the PAIRS website can answer the six questions and receive a free, confidential report on their score.
