Relationships in a Celiac World


This study explores the romantic relationship experiences of adults who live with celiac disease or the experiences of their romantic partners.

Romantic relationships fulfill needs for belonging, intimacy, and support and are the sources of some of life’s greatest joys. Your responses to this online survey will help us better understand the ways that celiac disease impacts people's experiences in these important relationships.

The online survey contains questions about your medical history, your current and previous experience in romantic relationships, and your thoughts about how celiac disease has affected these experiences. You do not need to be in a current romantic relationship to complete the survey BUT you must have been in a romantic relationship in the past.
