a Cosmo test?

chris and me

Every time I see an article that starts with “Take the true test of a good marriage…”, I always have to laugh. If you have reached that low point in your marriage where you would have to “test” it using something like this, then trust me, your marriage is either in deep trouble, or it’s already over.  

If your marriage is good and both of you are communicating, there’s no need to play games about how you feel about what’s going on. There’s no need to test anything. You know each other, or you should, long before you make that lifetime commitment.

A test is exactly what it implies.

It’s either Pass or Fail.

Even if you Pass, how good will you feel that you had to test it just to figure that out?

The true test of a good marriage is seeing one of these articles, turning the page and saying “you have no idea what my marriage is about or what it means to me, but I do and I don’t need some test to figure it out.”
