Your Parent's Partner Survey

Dad dating, living with or married to someone other than your mother?
Mom have a new or not-so-new love interest or partner?

If you answered "yes," please take this short  10-question survey.

I am doing research to explore situations in which adults over the age of 18 have a parent with a partner other than their birth or adoptive parent--as a result of a divorce or death of one parent. Your parent’s relationship may be decades long or brand “new.” I would like to discuss your relationships in this context for an upcoming book.

Participation in the study is completely voluntary. You must be 18-years-old or older. At no time will individual names be used in any published results; names and any identifying facts will be changed to protect identities.

If you are willing to speak with me in more detail, send your email address to me: I hope to hear from you. 

APPRECIATION FOR YOUR INVOLVEMENT: Participants who complete the survey and a telephone interview (estimated at 30 minutes) will receive a personalized hardbound copy of my book, Nobody’s Baby Now: Reinventing Your Adult Relationship with Your Mother and Father. (limited to US shipping)

Thank you! If you have questions concerning this research, feel free to contact me:
