Here's How to Interpret Your Scores!

First let me say that your scores on this little quiz are not 100% reliable.  You could rank very high, but still have 1-2 areas or more that are really troublesome.  On the other hand, you could "score" very low on the scale and still consider yourself "happy enough."  Everyone's a little different.  The scoring and questions are based on decades of my work with couples and on my observations, interviews, and personal couples work I've done with those couples. 

A for "Awesome" Scores of 18-20.  Your self-rating of your "Marital Happiness" puts you among the "Happiest of Marriages!"  Keep Up The Good Work!

B for "Better Than Most"  Scores of 15-17  Your self-rating of your "Marital Happiness" puts you in the range of "Happier than Most."  There are definitely some areas you could improve upon, but generally speaking, you see yourself as "happy" in your marriage... although there are some nagging areas that may have persisted for years that you should attend to so they don't get worse.

C for "Challenged."  Scores of 10-14 indicate that you're "holding on" to your marriage, but there are some major areas of potential challenges or problems.  You should definitely get some outside help.

D for "Dire."  Scores under 10 indicate that you are most likely miserable in your marriage, and it's time for you to get some outside help right now.
