Just stumbled upon this on Facebook and think it's pretty good. Just as relevant today as when it was written?

AuntieDiluvial Wed 08-Nov-17 17:56:30

Oh dear, apparently mine's very poor, borderline failure. Fortunately I disagree grin

The scores don't make sense. You can't score well without going on multiple dates a week!

bathandpjs Wed 08-Nov-17 18:04:34

Even if you went on a date every day the max score is 62 confused

As it happens DH is very poor grin

I’d love to see the wife rating chart.

“Deduct 5 points for each minute you have to wait for dinner on returning home for work”

Notreallyarsed Wed 08-Nov-17 18:06:52

Oh dear, despite only having 2 demerit points DP is apparently “poor”. I should add that his demerits are snoring and his bloody shoes!

MayFayner Wed 08-Nov-17 18:08:08

Is there meant to be another page (maybe the wife's chart?) to add to it, as it isn't enough as it stands.

Yes yes we need to see the wife one! DH is 'very poor' but I think that's very harsh! Perhaps we should devise or own, fit for 2017. What would we put in it?

-5 if the whatsapp tick is blue for more than 5 minutes

My boyfriend is poor apparently despite the fact he does everything in the merit column. Don't think it's possible to have anything above poor haha.

Found the wife one grin

Notreallyarsed Wed 08-Nov-17 19:37:23

Oh dear I’m even worse than DP grin

How the hell is “reads books and papers aloud to wife” a positive? It would drive me to murderous thoughts far quicker than any amount of belching and misplaced shoes. angry

Given that the maximum score a husband could acquire before demerits is around 50 (assuming four dates every week), I can't see how anyone would manage to reach the "Very Superior" category.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Wed 08-Nov-17 20:56:25

I would kill DH if he started reading aloud to me. I am apparently a terrible wife, according to that chart, but as he is equally terrible we are made for each other!

Littlegreyauditor Wed 08-Nov-17 21:07:50

Oh dear me, I’ve scored a mighty 5 for myself due to several de-merits. Ah well.

Whisky2014 Wed 08-Nov-17 21:29:37

There must be a lot more questions missing

Whisky2014 Wed 08-Nov-17 21:31:57

Found it

MayFayner Wed 08-Nov-17 21:35:31

"Not a sissy" shock grin

GlacindaTheTroll Wed 08-Nov-17 21:45:09

"Ensures wife has orgasm in marital congress +20"

The highest rated plus point

RickOShay Wed 08-Nov-17 21:50:13

isn’t warming up your cold feet on your husband one of their major plus points?

dickiedavisthunderthighs Wed 08-Nov-17 22:01:29

Sorry to be a misery but this looks fake. Date night? I’m pretty sure that was invented last year.

Whisky2014 Wed 08-Nov-17 22:08:28

My partner scored superior and I scored poor ffs

Njordsgrrrl Thu 09-Nov-17 00:10:48

Christ I thought the guys one was extremely harsh and then I saw the wife one. Dressing for breakfast? Obviously, I 'do' wear clothes but I suspect that's not what they mean. Unstraight stocking seams perhaps. Straight seams or no, DP would never get to work and consequently gain five demerit points for being unindustrious!

It's fakery
