" The outbreak of COVID-19 and the lockdown are undoubtably stressful (CDC, 2020; Liu et al., 2020). However, little is known about the influence of the lockdown on couple and family relationships. The goal of the present study is to investigate the longitudinal impact of the lockdown on couple and family relationships (i.e., distress, conflicts, problem-solving and aggression). Participants (N = 500) are completing 4 waves of data accross the different government announcements. An actor-partner interdependence model will be used to assess the dyadic developmental trajectory of partners. "
