1. Introduction

6% of survey complete.
Thank you for your participation in my research!

My name is Anna Kudak, and I am a faculty member in the Communication Department at the University of St. Thomas. I am conducting a research project focusing on the effect of rituals on marriage. Results of this study will help me learn more about marital relationship ritual patterns. Anyone over the age of 18 who is currently married is eligible to participate in this study.

Your participation is entirely voluntary, and you may withdraw from participation at any time, with no penalty. I think it will probably take about 10 minutes for you to complete this survey. Upon completion of the survey, you will be directed to a separate screen to enter the name of the student who referred you to this survey. If you were referred to this study by me, you may enter my name.

Although you may be entering a student's name so she or he may receive course credit, your identity will not be tied to your survey. Only group comparisons will be made and reported in summary form.

Thank you for your time.
