  • If you scored between six and eight A's - Dr. Hernandez says - your relationship is in pretty good shape.
  • If you score between four and six, Dr. Hernandez says there may be something you might want to look at. And four and below? Dr. Hernandez says, definitely question your spouse.

The key to any successful relationship is communication; by now your test results should have you and your spouse talking.
