This literature review and annotated bibliography represent several products of Child Trends’ project to review the state of the art in measuring couple relationships. The literature review and bibliography included here provide information on the psychometric properties of existing measures/tools used in current research on couple relationships across a broad range of sub-populations. These populations include: cohabiting couples, stepfamilies and remarried families, families who are co-parenting after the couple relationship has ended, families with children, families in which one or more partners in a couple is in the military, and families in which one or more partners in a couple is incarcerated. We also provide information on the psychometric properties of general measures that have been widely used in the literature, as well as measures that have been used to capture societal norms, values, and attitudes.
