The study that I picked was Partnership after prison: Couples relationships during reentry. The primary focus of this research is on couples after the man has been released from prison and is reentering society. They were thinking about how long the relationship would last. They were also curious about the relationship before and after prison. This study focused on men who had recently been released from prison for the second time. The study also focuses on what could potentially affect the couple’s relationship.

The purpose of this study was to show what life is really like when trying to adjust to life after getting out of jail. In addition, the data and information obtained during the study were used towards reducing the number of repeated offenders while encouraging positive interaction and communication with their partner. The use of statistical data made it easier to find out what methods were most likely useful and which options should be made available to the detained person both before and after release to help with their relationship and the life challenges the detainee may face once released. The study's goal is to demonstrate how programs and support can help people successfully reenter society with the person they are in a relationship with.

For this study, 641 couples who were in relationships with the male incarcerated were interviewed. The majority of the couples in the study were not legally married but had long-term relationships. A high percentage of the males in the research couples had previous incarcerations on their record, with an average of 6.5 and 7.0 prior incarcerations during adulthood (Comfort et al., 2018). This demonstrated that the couples had been through similar experiences and were not new to this type of relationship. The demographics are released prisoners and their spouses.
