Research interests

Carole Burgoyne's research interests include the study of money and commitment in intimate relationships, and the psychology of money and currency more generally. She has carried out studies of married, remarried, cohabiting, and same sex couples, using a combination of quantitative and qualitative techniques. Amongst the issues investigated are the recent developments in Civil Partnerships legislation and the extent to which couples will take advantage of this if and when it becomes possible; people's beliefs about how money should be allocated in married and non-married relationships as well as a number of other issues concerning the distribution of benefits and burdens, and possible links between beliefs about marriage/commitment and money management styles.

Carole Burgoyne, Stefanie Sonnenberg and Anne Barlow at the University of Exeter recently completed research funded by the ESRC into financial practices and beliefs of unmarried cohabiting couples.

Carole Burgoyne is currently writing up findings from the following funded research projects:

 1. 'Money in Non-Traditional Heterosexual couples' (with Dr. Stefanie Sonnenberg) ESRC £44,604.

2. 'The Living Together Campaign: Impact on legally aware cohabitants'. From DCA (with Prof. Anne Barlow in Law). £15,000.

3. 'The Common Law Marriage Myth and Cohabitation Law Reform Revisited'. Nuffield Foundation (with Prof. Anne Barlow in Law): £106,068

4. 'Money management and marital commitment in new couples: An evaluation of the FOCCUS Inventory in marriage preparation'. Funded over 3 years by LCD. (A total of £135,000 approx). Work completed but writing up still in progress.

5. 'Beliefs about the allocation of money in marriage'. Funded by Leverhulme Trust over 2 years from August 2003: £59,406. Writing up still in progress.

6. 'Money management in lesbian and gay couples' with Dr. Victoria Clarke at UWE. Funded by ESRC over two years from Feb 2004: £45,000. Writing up ongoing.

She co-hosted a series of seminars as a result of the ESRC Seminars competition in 2005-6 called 'Beyond Homo Economicus: Emerging Perspectives on Economic Behaviour'.
