Wheatley/IFS Dataset on Technology and Marriage Cited

The Dataset on Technology and Relationships Has Been Cited in Multiple Sources

Wheatley Institute's research on technology usage within married couples is used in a new study done by the Institute of Family Studies. The data suggests that 37% of American couples say that their spouse is using their phone when the other person would prefer to talk or do something together.

Washington Examiner, Christian Post and Patriot Post have cited the research. Each article talks about how the more screen time a person uses, the more negative effects involved in their marriage, including lower marital happiness, worries of divorce, and less physical intimacy.
