Online marriage quiz

I love these goofy relationship quizzes that magazines put out there. This one is for "Could Your Marriage Benefit from Counseling."

Ok, I'll bite. We have our ups and downs. We have about three big blow-up arguments a year and we bicker and snipe at each other regularly, but we typically muddle through.

Some of the questons on this quiz have nothing to do with us - sex drives different, he is talking about some chick he works with, etc. There is no applicable answer for us, but the quiz still makes you choose one. So, here is the result. We're still in good shape even with me having to pick out weirdo answers.

Based on on my answers, AoD and I have:
A Normal, Evolving Relationship
You may not be crawling all over each other they way you did when you first met, and you may find that you want more alone time than you did when you were first married, but Love says that most couples experience these kind of shifts. "If you're not reeling with infatuation the way you used to be, or you realize that you want to spend more time alone or with friends or family, that's perfectly normal," she says. Love says that many healthy couples are also troubled by the fact that one person has stronger sexual desire than the other -- an issue that might not crop up until a couple is out of the honeymoon phase. Again, this is normal. And contrary top pop-psychology wisdom, you don't have to exhaustively discuss every conflict that you have -- sometimes dropping it is actually the best course. "Happy couples have just as many unresolved issues as unhappy couples. The question is, do you have a way of moving beyond it? Sweeping it under the rug is perfectly legitimate," she says. However, if you're feeling that the two of you are drifting apart, then it's a good idea to schedule some couple time together. You don't have to be exploring anyone's childhood issues. But a picnic or a bike ride would be nice.

I'm sure AoD is going to say, see, I told you ...

    hmm....I got the same results. None of the questions applied to me.....NONE! He doesnt talk about a hot chick at work, we DO spend all our time together when he is home. He STILL does little things for me, like get up at 6am to hand wash my car for me before I go to work .He cleans house and runs errands. Although they didnt have a question that asked is he anal and ALWAYS right????? hehehehehe
