All right! That finishes our 10 question marriage compatibility test! Ready to see how your scored?

Mostly A’s: If you have scored between 7-10 A’s on this marriage compatibility test, it shows that you are very capable of being compatible for marriage and a long term committed relationship with another. If you did not get straight A’s, it does not mean your relationship is doomed to fail – it simply means you will want to work on the items you did not score A’s on with your partner. You and your partner do not need to agree on everything, but it helps if you have found ways to work out the things you disagree about.

Mostly B’s: While scoring all B’s on the marriage compatibility quiz does not mean you and your partner’s relationship is doomed, it may mean there are many issues you and your partner should work on together before making the commitment of marriage, or if you are already married could be a sign that there are some areas in your relationship that need attention. You can improve your compatibility by improving communication and how well you know each other.

Mostly C’s: If you scored mostly C’s on this marriage compatibility test, then you will want to spend some time talking with your partner and getting to know each other better. Scoring mostly C’s shows that you are not ready to tell if you and your partner are compatible for marriage yet – but by discussing many of these issues you will be able to find out if you have similar ideas.

    is this test scientifically proven or just an estimate? but I tried to answer this sets of questions and sadly we’re B and luckily we’re already married but we are just doing fine. :D

    It’s not a scientific test, no…meant only mostly to find out compatibility. Being all B’s is not bad, and in some cases you may have actually been A’s (such in cases in a relationship where most of us compromise or “agree to disagree”) Mostly it’s for entertainment to see how well the two of you know each other and if you have a lot in common or a lot of differences. They are many divorced couples out there who have had everything in common and also happily married couples who are complete opposites :) So mostly, the test is just for fun.

    I had to take this poll since the man I have been seeing the past couple of years proposed on Valentines Day. I have to say we did really well, but then I already knew that and had already said yes.
