About Us

In the PAIR lab, we are interested in the ways people maintain positivity (i.e., fun, and excitement) through activities with their partner (e.g., shared leisure, date night) in the context of long term intimate relationships (e.g., dating, marital). More specifically, we study the factors that promote and hinder positive activities in intimate relationships with a focus on pairs (i.e., how couple members interact and influence positive activity engagement).
