In the July edition of the journal Psychological Science, researchers have outlined a new tool, called ‘partner-GNAT’ (partner-focused go/no-go association task), that uses word association drills to reveal subconscious feelings about your relationship and predict break-ups a year in advance.

Ronald D. Rogge of the University of Rochester in New York says that he and colleagues currently have a follow-up study underway. “Individuals taking the survey will do a couple word-sorting tasks and will be given feedback on their performance at the end,” he says.

The survey requires both you and your partner to separately fill out the same form online, that includes relationship facts (how long you’ve been together, pet names, etc), word drills, and a questionnaire on the dynamics of your relationship.
