Marriage Satisfaction Survey

How satisfied are you in your marriage? The OU wants to know. They are conducting an online survey. Here is how it was described to me:

The survey aims to identify issues within Jewish Orthodox Marriages so that they may create programming and infrastructure to address them. The other organization is called Aleinu Family Resource Center, a program of Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles, and the Rabbinical Council of California.

Questions on the survey are pretty straight forward and what you would expect on a survey of this kind, the kicker being “would you marry the same person all over again”, or something to that extent. Expectations are unknown, which is one of the reasons for the survey and we hope to get a sample size in the thousands.

I took it and it is really quite painless. I have been asked to help publicize it and am happy to do so. Here is the link to the survey.
