darn those socks! literally.

Heavens to Betsy! This is so fantastic. In the 1930s George W. Crane, MD, PhD crafted a Marital Rating Scale (among many other things) for rating your wife in your marriage. As a counselor, he designed this test to allow couples to give each other feedback on their marriage. The chart is below and it absolutely cracks me up.
How awesomely chauvinistic to be able to demerit your wife on paper for having crooked pantyhose seams, wearing too much face cream to bed, or failing to darn socks regularly. hahaha oh DARN IT ALL!
But don't worry candypants, you can get points back by being able to hold an interesting conversation (I know it's hard sweat pea, but do try) or by always asking your husband for his opinion regarding important decisions (because he knows better, duh). Man I can't even imagine living back then. But I would be willing to go back in time and try it out. I find it endlessly fascinating.

Hahaha that is hilarious and infuriating at the same time.
You are guilty of # 2,3,5,7 (lack of hose),9 and 11. I'm pretty sure that threatening to punch a little kid not only falls under not liking children but also escalates you from 5 to 10 demerits.
Good luck finding a husband.
