Exercise One

The Remarriage Motivation Test

On a scale of 1 to 10, rate how much of a factor each of the following motivators are for you to get married. Take time to consider each item, and be as honest as possible.

1. Love at first sight is a factor in why I'm ready to get married again.

2. Rebounding from the pain of a previous marriage is a factor in my motivation for this second marriage.

3. Rebellion against my ex-wife is a factor in my motivation.

4. Loneliness contributes to my reasons for getting married again.

8. Escape from an unhappy first marriage is causing me to want to get married again.

9. Pressure from others has something to do with why I am getting married again.

Scoring: Add up your score from each of the nine items. There are ninety possible points on this test. Add ten to your score. If your score is fifty or less, you can rest easy in the fact that you are probably not getting remarried for some of the most common negative reasons. If your score is greater than twenty-five, you will certainly want to do some soul-searching on your own and with your partner about the items that you ranked highest. We also strongly suggest talking about these motivators with an objective counselor.
