Tohru would probably have a perfect score.

Another meme, this one from my SIL nessabutterfly.

Obviously I had to use a lot of imagination to answer, but I tried to base how I *would* treat a hypothetical spouse/child on concrete indicators, such as how I treated college roommates or past boyfriends, or how I treat my students or nephew, etc. Ah...I probably took the silly thing a bit too seriously.

59

As a 1930s wife, I am
Superior

Take the test!



122

As a 1930s husband, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!



Give it a try here, if you like.

Three things:

1) I think it's clearly much easier to be a good 1930s husband than a good 1930s wife.
2) On a related note, it's amazing--and gratifying--to see how much more gender-egalitarian our assumptions are now as compared to then.
3) I admit I'm amused at having learned a new meaning of the word "congress" from this quiz.
