    Random Survey# 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

  • Traditions as a family heritageWe both were taught in our families of origin who we were our civil identity and what it means to be equallyoked (note: NOT the concept of equallyokedtarianism as a societal membership).Comment: Differentiating between equallyokedtarian couples who were indoctrinated by family tradition rather than those who paid for or used a family heritage DNA testing service was significant but it was not cited herewithin nor pursued.

  • Beliefs insights couples have about being equallyokedDo we believe that we are equallyoked? Yes, we believe we are equallyoked. We both believe the same. So, we trust that its the right thing to do.

    Note: This equallyoked couple were forthright about their beliefs and shared tht fact that they both hold the belief in being, not unequally yoked.

  • Assumptions that are held about their selvesWe assume that we are. well, I as we see it, anyway. at least we are close enough to being equallyoked.

    Comment: From my point-of-view, without a formal psychosocial assessment I really could see that this couple was indeed close enough (as they put it) to being equallyoked truly.

  • Values a recognized formal social moresWe maybe we arent members of high society. out and about in society

    Comment:

  • Norms were animate in expression about not being unequally yokedHell, we arent unequallyoked. Just because we dont have a good income and college education and members of high society. we do have each other. Yeah, were equallyoked

    Comment: This couple did believe they were equallyoked. Making it clear by their attitude that they were not abnormal - they were animate about not being unequallyoked.

  • Standards of equallyoked couples as a subcultureWe dont smoke, dont drink, dont litter so many of our couple friends are unequallyoked. and we do have some friends who are equallyoked and they all seem to know it. ... upholding the same standard as we have.

    Comment: Within the circle of friendships of this couple they do have sets of couples/friends who hold a different set of standards and those who did and were - equallyoked.

  • Methods of communication styles and publically socializingWe (call) talk a lot with some of our family members who are also in equallyoked relationships. We do have friends, couples, who are equallyoked and we text them about going out with them dating as two couples.Comment: There was not any communication nor an explicit understanding about whether these couples who dated as couples (and who were equallyoked) were attending specifically equallyokedtarian activities.

  • Membership among others of the same civil identity or diverse civil identitiesWe are equallyoked. Our family were members of an international dance club ..we eat drink.. dance (smiling) we faithfully attend an important annual society dance.

    Comment: This couple, who were openly equallyokedtarian represented too by their attire and accented their membership in a society organization implying that their dance club was an (equallyokedtarian) societial affair.

  • Identifying with one another with other couples of the same civil identity Yes we are equallyoked. Hay, we all speak the same second language (laughing)..yes, we are equallyokedtarians (with a smile). (They walked away holding hands talking in another distinct foreign language to one another). Comment: This couple seemingly had their own definition of equallyokedtarian with a rather good sense of humor. It is noteworthy here to report that they were of course very obviously equallyoked (by civil identity), however.

  • Change outside or inside one desires to be equallyokedSince we are not equallyoked, I would like to get out of this relationship into an equallyoked one. Comment: I was very influenced by the attitude of the interviewees. I felt I was in the midst of a crisis decision on the part of the couple. Whether by annulment or divorce, the change would have to be brought about by one or both expressing the fact that they were not equallyoked and would like to be.

  • Summary of InterviewsA couple who believe they are equallyoked share sometimes the very same civil identity, sometimes share similar civil identities, and there are those who only belief they are equallyoked by their own vague understanding. Equallyokedtarians are couples identified within a multicultural society sometimes are indeed aware that they share in the same civil identity, some are aware they are very similar civil identities or there are some couples whose civil identities are skewed afar off from each individual in that dyad yet somehow belief they are equallyoked. Some couples have strong influence within their own group concerning their civil identity. Sometimes an equallyoked couple possess no insight about being equallyoked, yet they are indeed equallyoked, yet being so, is outside their own awareness themselves. Some are equallyoked unstated.

  • A Reference CoupleAn equallyoked couple as a reference couple for research in the social sciences?It is plausible that the equallyoked dyad is as diverse as there are people yet they all are valuable research indices for conducting studies.Double blind controlled clinical trials with certain identified equallyoked couples, providing they are not globalist manipulated, and without any local or state police, nor governmental intelligence meddling/interference could be considered authenicated as - truly fair for a proven social scientific outcome.
