About this Book

Print Excerpt

61. I feel needed by my partner. True False

62. My partner is jealous of me. True False

Now go back over your test and count all of the even-numbered questions to which you answered True. Write down the total. Now go back and count all of the odd-numbered items to which you answered False. Add that number to your “True total” to get your overall score.

Even-numbered “True” responses _________

Odd-numbered “False” responses _________


If your overall score is above 32, it is likely that your relationship is in extreme danger of failing. If your total score is between 20 and 32, then your relationship is seriously troubled and you may be living in an “emotional divorce.” If your total score is between 12 and 19, then your relationship is probably above average (which is not great) and certainly needs work. If your score is below 11, then your relationship is well above the norm and may have isolated areas in which you can improve.
