Relationship Interview Project Paper
The purpose of this assignment is to see how much you thought you knew about relationships and to show the different perspectives of each stage. Everyoneâ€™s â€œstoryâ€ is different, but you might just learn a thing or two about each stage to help you in your life relationships! For this assignment you will be using what you learn from the relationship chapters, discussions and class handouts/notes.
1) You are required to choose one stage of a relationship and evaluate the challenges and success strategies of that stage. You will be observing, interviewing, and researching your subjects. Choose to interview a couple in one of the types of stages of a relationship:
- Dating (less than 6 months)
- Newly married (less than 5 years)
- Married (more than 10 years)
2) The Interview!
After making your choice, you will interview your subjects and ask questions based on the information you would like to find out. Remember, keep the information general. It might make people uncomfortable to ask questions that are too personal. Find out how they feel about the different stages of their relationship.
3) The Paper

- Relationship stage and development (how they met, â€œtheir storyâ€)
