The following survey is part of a research project to learn about people’s experiences being part of a couple where the partners are from two different countries. The survey results will be included in a resource book for people in cross-cultural relationships, with a goal of helping people in cross-national relationships have happier, more successful relationships. You can take this survey if you have been in a relationship with someone from a country other than your own in the past that is now over. We will ask questions about your relationship, cultural differences and adaptation, the influences of others on your relationship, and contributing factors to the relationship not working out. If you are currently in a relationship with someone from another country, please take our other survey at
This survey is anonymous and completely voluntary. With the exception of a few required demographic questions, if you come to any question you don’t want to answer, you may skip to the next question or indicate you don’t wish to answer. You may discontinue participation at any time during the survey. All information will be anonymous in any publications or presentations in order to preserve your right to privacy. By taking this survey, you are giving your voluntary consent for us to use your information in Love Has No Borders: Navigating Your Cross-Cultural Relationship©.
You may pause the survey at the end of any survey page and your answers will be saved. You can resume the survey where you left off, as long as you re-open the survey on the same device (computer, pad, phone). Only one survey may be submitted from any device.
At the end of the survey, you will be asked if you would like to be entered in a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card and/or if you would to be notified when the book is published. If you answer "Yes," you will be taken to another site to enter your email address; your survey answers will in no way be connected to your email or directly identified with you..
This research does not involve risks beyond those encountered in daily life. Some people could find it upsetting to think about any unpleasant aspects of their relationships. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
Thank you for your participation.
