Excerpt from Do You Know Your Wife?

Think you know all about the woman on the other side of the dinner table? Well, maybe. Let this little book be the judge.

The fact is, no matter how long you've been together, there's probably plenty you don't know about the woman in your life. If the two of you are like most couples, you probably talk more about the neighbors and the news than about yourselves. The result: an information gap.

Counselors say that knowing about your partner's past and preferences can be important-even things like "Who was her best friend in grade school?" and "Does she hate squash?" Knowing, they say-even knowing such bits of trivia-is a sign of caring.
Now, that's not to say that if you and she are on the verge of a split, knowing her shoe size will save your relationship. But, as the lady said as she offered chicken soup to the dying man, "It couldn't hurt!"

So grab a pencil and show what you know. The answers, of course, are not in the book; only she can say. So after you've completed the test, ask her to check your answers and figure your score.

The test has 100 questions. Count ten points for each correct answer. Where you miss some of a multi-part question, divide and take partial credit; you'll need all the help you can get. Here's how to rate yourself:

Above 900: Very impressive. In fact, downright amazing.
700-900: Pretty good, but you might want to work a little to polish off your knowledge. Start asking questions...and pay attention.
Below 700: Weak. Ask her to give you a remedial course.

Take the "Do You Know Your Wife?" test. You may find you have something to brag about, or you may be humbled. Either way, just by going over your answers together, you'll learn a little and have some fun as well. Good luck.
