Retro ratings

Filed under: Comedy,Treats — posted by Mia @ 9:18 am

Mind Hacks recently featured a highly amusing husband and wife rating chart from the 1930s, invented by marriage counselor George W. Crane, MD, Ph.D. How it works: your spouse earns merit or demerit points based on his or her behaviors and characteristics. Some (“Snores”) are things we can still relate to, while the rest offer a curious peek into the norms and expectations of that era (demerits for a husband who “talks of efficiency of his stenographer or other women” or a wife who “fails to sew on buttons or darn socks regularly”).

Crane aimed to be “scientific” in the development of this test; true to form, according to the American Psychological Association, he started the Scientific Marriage Foundation, which took a “scientific” approach to marriage and claimed to have set up more than 5,000 marriages.

I wonder what a modern version of this questionnaire would look like. Demerits for “brings laptop to bed”?

  1. My brother recommended I would possibly like this blog.
    He was once totally right. This put up truly made my day.
    You can not consider simply how a lot time I had spent for this info!
    Thank you!

  2. Heya are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do
    you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  4. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However think of if you added some great visuals or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and video clips, this website could definitely
    be one of the best in its niche. Terrific blog!
