This will help you determine your marriage strengths and areas for improvement. I would encourage you to have your spouse take it, too. It can help you identify those blind spots that need work.

Score you and your marriage (and print out) from 1 to 5 with 1 being Poor, not effective, not satisfied; 2 being Rare, but occasional effectiveness and satisfaction; 3 being Average, spotty but somewhat effective, satisfied; 4 being Good, do pretty well, fairly satisfied, strength; and 5 being the Best, doing well, very satisfied, a real strength area.
