Thank you for taking a few minutes to help me discover how your marriage meshes the roles and activities of husband and wife. I'll be using the information on a book project, and may quote your responses (without personally identifying you). If you have any insights or suggestions as you're completing the survey, include them in the comment section at the end.

PLEASE SUBMIT ONLY ONE SURVEY per person. Again, thank you for your help!
