Sometimes I study things other than prisoners . . .

And sometimes (rarely, as in once) those studies make The Atlantic’s Study of the Day feature.  Like yesterday.  This study, “Materialism and Marriage: Couple Profiles of Congruent and Incongruent Spouses,” was the very first I co-authored in graduate school.  It was “in press” so long that I didn’t even realize it had finally come out, so thanks to Emily for pointing that out!

BYU News has a bit lengthier article about it as well as links to all the news outlets that covered the article if you’re interested in the topic (ABC News and Deseret News did the most in-depth pieces).  And if you’re really interested, I’ve got the full text waiting for you . . .



  1. suh-weet! congrats on all the publicity on your article!

  2. How exciting! Congratulations, you famous researcher! You should be so proud of yourself! (ps: I LOVE the story about Addison taking care of Addisen and the other babes. You are so blessed to have such a sweet, good-natured daughter!)
