The Shackleton Relationships project is an innovative collaboration between researchers in the Law School and the Medical School led by Professor Anne Barlow and funded by Baroness Shackleton of Belgravia LVO.

Do you know what makes couple relationships last?

Researchers from the Shackleton Relationships Project here at the University of Exeter are now recruiting couples to take part in interviews to find out what drives their relationship to thrive and endure. 

If you have lived with your partner for over 15 years, either as a cohabitee and/or in a marriage or civil partnership and would be happy to share the story of how your relationship works, we would love to hear from you.

As it is a small study, we are looking specifically for couples who currently live in the Devon area and who have not been married to someone else prior to their current relationship. Please contact Sharon on 07908 524593 or
