About This Quiz

You're a modern woman. You're strong, independent, and highly educated. You depend on nobody for what you need; you have skills and your own connections and drive. You bring home your own bacon and you cook it, too.

All of this doesn't mean you don't want to be a wife someday (whether to a man or a woman is up to you!). After all, the world is a big place and taking it on side-by-side with your boo makes it that much more conquerable. Do you want to submit to someone and perform all their domestic chores forever? These days, probably not. However, you still may very well want to partner up with someone who will help you achieve your dreams, even as you commit yourself fully to supporting him or her as they pursue their own dreams. You know that, like a plane with two engines that sometimes needs to fly on the power of just one, a married pair can go through the world more safely -and have a lot more fun along the way.

Fortunately, nowadays, all the things that make you awesome in and of yourself are key to being the most wifely woman there is. Decent cook? Check. Earn your own living? Check. Willing to assert reasonable boundaries and make reasonable compromises? Check. Ready to take the plunge? Maybe. Let's find out just how great a catch you are!
