Participants are being sought for a research study exploring how finances are ‘held and thought about’ by modern-day couples.

The study, which is being conducted by University of Birmingham lecturer Charlotte Bendall, is examining 
financial independence within relationships, and the extent to which assets are viewed by partners as being either joint or separate. Ms Bendall is seeking to recruit people of working age who are presently cohabiting with a same-sex partner or are in a formalised same-sex relationship ( a marriage or civil partnership).

Participation would involve an individual interview with Ms Bendall, lasting for approximately one hour. The questions asked would allow the interviewee to reflect on their financial behaviour within their relationship. The aim of the study is to ensure that family law reflects the society within which it operates. Interviews would take place at a mutually agreed location.

For more information about how to take part, contact Ms Bendall by email at 

Would-be participants can also write to her at Birmingham Law School, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TT.
