The Enduring Love? project is a mixed methods study on long-term adult couple relationships. The findings add an important dimension to understandings of personal and family lives in contemporary society.

Increasing knowledge on how long-term relationships work and the emotional and practical relationship work that goes into sustaining them, facilitate more effective points of intervention, informing the improvement of policy making, governance and support services, and relationship education.
