Time Warp: Take a Marital Rating Test

Time Warp: Take a Marital Rating Test

Want to see if your marriage will hold up over time? A Flickr user has posted a very amusing 1950’s-era marriage test that claims to be a “Blueprint for Happiness.” It’s basically a series of statements that are either counted as merits or demerits in your relationship and your score determines how good or bad a spouse you are.

While many of them are clearly outdated, i.e. “Talks of efficiency of his stenographer or other women,” and “Fails to sew on buttons or darn socks regularly.” Most of them still ring true half a century later. Here are a few of the best examples:

Demerits:
“Belches without apology, or blows nose at the table.”
“Slow in coming to bed—delays ‘till husband is almost asleep.”

Merits:
“Helps wife with dishes, caring for children, scrubbing”
“Has spunk—will defend her ideals and religion.

Take the test yourself and let us know how you did. [Flickr.com]

I made a promise to tell my testimony all over the globe once my man come back to me and my husband came just as DR abaka told me when he helped me. I made the right choice to have contacted DR abaka the great spell caster who is capable of helping you solve your problems. My man left me to suffer and i never believed that he will come back to me again but when i contacted DR abaka he assured me that my man will come again. he gave me some list of items to buy but i could not get them in my country and so i sent him the money and he bought the items and prepared the perfect love spell. My husband ran back to me in 3 days time begging for forgiveness THIS IS SO REAL AND GENUINE. NO SCAMS. I was so surprise that the spell worked just as he told me. This is so amazing and i want you to believe because DR abaka is so real and i urge you contact him now on his email so that he can also help you the way he helped me. email is Drabakaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also contact him with his phone number on whats app +2349063230051 you can also check and contact him on htpp://Drabakaspelltemple.blogspot.com
