About This Quiz

Crack open a novel at random, and chances are you'll find an incredible love story. Novelists specialize in tales of hearts won (and lost.) We remember the happy couples, like Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet or Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester. But we remember the tragic couples, too, like Pip and Estella, or Anna Karenina and Count Vronsky. Perhaps that's because our own love lives aren't perfect. You may be married to someone you love, but that doesn't mean you don't have eyes for the new person in your office. 

Here's the good news: whether you're happily married, coupled up or in an "it's complicated situation," this quiz will work for you! To find out which literary couple you and your partner resemble, you're going to be asked questions that apply to every love story (happy or not!) 

You'll need to tell us how you two met, what genre your relationship is, why you're in love with your partner and how long you think your loins will burn for them. Be honest — to determine which literary couple you and your lover resemble, our quiz supercomputer must know everything. Are you ready for a bookish (yet passionate) deep dive into romance? Stop reading "Conversations with Friends" and take this quiz!
