If you came home to find your wife had spent the day rearranging the living-room furniture, and was obviously pleased with ihe results, would you tell her you liked it. or say, "I was just beginning -to get used to it the way it was?" On OJLI evening when your wife seemed to want to talk, would you hide behind the evening paper and try to get by with an occasional mumbled word in the hope that she would finally leave you alone, or would you give her your undivided attention? When your wife reminds you that the two of you are going out to dinner, do you take the news good-naturedly or start complaining about what a hard day you have had. how tired you are, and how you wish you could stay home? When your wife tells you her late to dinner, do you take the trouble to call and tell your wife. I or do you skip the phone call and accuse her of nasging when, she greets you with, "I cooked a good dinner but I've held it so long I'm afraid it's ruined?" Any woman knows how a "perfect" husband would answer those questions, so maybe you'd better check your answers with your wife before deciding you scored a hundred on the perfect-husband test.
