"Marriage is not a steady state. Each marriage naturally and inevitably progresses through seven distinct stages, during which the needs, priorities, and desires of the relationship change. By understanding what stage your relationship is in, you can take exactly the right steps to make your marriage as happy, close, and fulfilling as you wish."

..........................................An excerpt from The 7 Stages of Marriage, written by Rita DeMaria, Ph.D.

Thank you for your support. This survey is the second phase of research in support of my book, The 7 Stages of Marriage. The first phase, completed in 2010, included the results of 500 respondents. Your participation in this new, refined survey will help to finalize the seven stages of marriage and committed relationships. My goal is to receive 1000 responses. Please consider forwarding this survey to your family and friends who may be interested in participating.

Thank you.
