How to Have a Happy Marriage - a Quiz

It's our 14th wedding anniversary today! So that makes me a marriage expert, right? 

Wrong..but it certainly qualifies me to write a fun marriage quiz.  Because we all love quizzes.  And I HAVE managed to stay (mostly) happily married for 14 years...despite plenty of poorer and not so much richer.   

1.  If your wife asks you for marital tips you should.
     a. ignore her
     b. say the wife is always right
     c. give some romantic answer
     d. suddenly go find something to clean

2. If you see a job that needs to be done you should
     a. do it
     b. wait for your spouse to do it
     c. nag your spouse to do it
     d. spend an hour discussing who should do the job and whose turn it is, blah, blah, blah

3. If your spouse makes dinner and you hate it you should 
    a. thank him/her and tell him/her it looks and tastes great
    b. check for arsenic 
    c. eat a little bit and them make yourself peanut butter and jelly
    d. offer to make dinner the next night 

5. If you spouse isn't answering their cell phone you should.
    a. freak out and convince yourself they are dead somewhere
    b. call them repeatedly
    c. assume the worst
    d. take a deep breath and assume the best 

    a. yes
    b. no  

7. You like to roll the toothpaste and your spouse is a squeezer.  You should
   a. insist he/she does it your way
   b. just get your own rolls of toothpaste and don't worry about it.

8. Your wife buys too many vitamins.  Should you
   a. yell at her
   b. confiscate her credit card
   c. accept the fact that she is a crunchy, weirdo freak and even take the vitamins she gives you
   d. let her buy them but refuse to take them

9. Time are tough.  Should you
   a. take it out on each other
   b. take it out on the kids
   c. take up a bad habit (like Diet Coke)
   d. pray more

10. Are weekly date nights without the kids vital for a happy marriage.
   a. yes
   b. no...you can have a date in
   c. spending time together is important..doesn't have to be an "actual date"
   d. b and c but if you like a and have lots of babysitting, good for you 

11.  The most important characteristic of a happy marriage is:
   a. unselfishness
   b. unselfishness
   c. unselfishness
   d. unselfishness

Answers: I'm not telling.  You figure it out. 

Actually some of these could have more than one answer.  Some of them. Every marriage is different because all people are different. What works for one couple may not work for another.    

As long as you can get question 11 right, you probably can't go wrong.  And that's an easy question.
