The 1930’s Marital Scale for husbands and wives

The 1930’s Marital Scale for husbands and wives

133

As a 1930s husband, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!

How would you rate on a marital test from the 1930s. It’s all in good fun and shows how much marital expectations and roles have changed and how much they have not. Versions for both husband and wife. Incidentally, I think it’s easier for a man to score higher than a woman because husbands’ roles have not changed as much as wives’.

  • How the heck did this happen?  I guess you can still be a good 1930’s housewife if you smoke, drink, gamble or use dope.  (I count the occasional beer and glass of wine as drinking.)

  • Well I got 103 “Superior”, not bad! Of course being married for 47 years helps and when we were young, no one thought about divorce, only a marriage that would last forever! By the way, I still believe marriages are made in heaven cause Our Lord said “What the Father has joined together, let no man separate.”
