Oh my gosh, I can’t stop laughing.
Let’s take a look at the 1939 Marital Rating Scale, created by Dr. George W. Crane, shall we?
In this gem of a test, a wife must score herself on the following traits:
Wears red nail polish.
Late for appointments? (um…)
Has meals on time? (Do chicken nuggets count?)
Dresses for breakfast? (Are pants optional? Also, what’s breakfast?)
Neat housekeeper? (Let’s pass on that one.)
Lets husband sleep in on Sunday? (I can’t even.)
We can’t make this stuff up, people.
Look, I realize times were different then. Life was different. But come ON. I mean, really. To say I’m thankful to live in 2016 is not an accurate response.
I’m over the moon thrilled to be in 2016. I know we have problems, but at least I’m not shunned if I fail to wear pants to breakfast (which, let’s be honest, my husband does breakfast anyway).
What score did you receive?
