QUIZ: How Does Your Husband Rate?

QUIZ: How Does Your Husband Rate?

Has anyone else seen the 1930’s Wife Test? I started taking the test thinking I was scoring really well!

  • I delay going to bed (usually because I’ve had too much wine and am asleep on the couch).
  • I don’t like (other people’s) children.
  • If a button falls off, it stays off.
  • I wear red nail polish (only on my toes though, fingers are ALWAYS pink).
  • I wear a particularly foul smelling “miracle” cream on my face to bed.
  • I always put my cold feet on my husband at night to warm them (isn’t that why he’s there?)
  • I believe it’s my job to tell my husband to slow down and stop tail gating.
  • Of course I flirt with other men at parties and in restaurants.

And then I realised I was giving myself merits instead of demerits. Wrong column. Oops. Onto the merit column:

Uh-oh, I can’t play a musical instrument, I don’t dress for breakfast, jury’s out on the housekeeping, have been known to go to bed angry, not religious and if I’m getting up early on Sunday so is he.

Final score: -7. That’s MINUS 7. That’s not even an option in the Raw Scores. Wow.

In the spirit of all things being fair and equal I made one for the fellas and without further adieu I present to you ladies, drum-roll please, The Husband’s Marital Rating Scale.

In computing the score, check the various items under DERMERITS which fit the husband, and add the total. Each item counts one point unless specifically weighted as in the parentheses. Then check the items under MERITS which apply; now subtract the DEMERIT score from the MERIT score. The result is the husband’s raw score. Interpret it according to this table:

 

RAW SCORES                                                                                                  INTERPRETATION

25-41……………………………………………………………………………    Poor

42-58……………………………………………………………………………    Average

59-75……………………………………………………………………………    Superior

76 and up……………………………………………………………………..       Very Superior
