View Full Version : 1930's house wife test

07-15-2008, 07:17 PM
I got a 33...


07-15-2008, 07:23 PM
I got a 20. I'm a failure as a 30's housewife.

07-15-2008, 07:27 PM
I've taken this one before, got a 3

ETA: juts re-took it and got a -19....i think it's the smoking,not doing his laundry, profanity & putting my cold feet on him at night that did me in....

07-15-2008, 08:23 PM
I took the husband one and scored

As a 1930s husband, I am
Very Superior

Guess I woulda made a good hubby in the 30s. No wonder I like fedoras :rofl:

07-15-2008, 08:34 PM
I got a 71- which apparently means I'm a superior 1930's housewife....hmmmm

07-15-2008, 08:39 PM
I got a 28, I think they marked me down for this one: Puts her cold feet on husband at night to warm them.

But he's always warmer than I am! :roflhard:

07-15-2008, 08:39 PM
I got a -19 as well. Of course I'm not married....LOL

07-15-2008, 08:48 PM
Oh good, Ann... I'm not the only one. I scored a 63 and have spent the last half hour or so reevaluating my self image as a modern married thirty something while I cook dinner and do laundry. :roflhard:

Laundry? What's that? :mrgreen:

07-15-2008, 09:36 PM
I know, I feel sort of anti-feminist or something!

07-15-2008, 09:59 PM
hahaha...I'd totally suck at being a 1930's housewife, I got a 21, very poor

07-15-2008, 10:08 PM
I got a 76. I really feel anti-feminist. Not sure how I scored so high since I as well put my cold feet on DH at night.

07-15-2008, 10:10 PM
I got a 49, which is average--which is not bad for 41 and never married and often told that I am just too independent! I may be too independent, but I do expect a man to check my oil and warm my feet on his bare legs! I'll keep him warm, too!

07-15-2008, 10:30 PM
Hubby took the husband quiz and got a 66. :roflhard:

07-15-2008, 10:41 PM
i got 21 lol...

it was the "tells vulgar stories" one that did me in, I think...

07-15-2008, 11:31 PM
I got a 71
Now don't get me all wrong here but don't equate the 30's housewife with the 50's trophy wife.
Back in the 30's women were definitely more independant than they were 20 years later (dang talk bout a huge leap backwards huh?)
ETA: My gramma's were them 30's housewives n I tell ya what them ladies were no shrinking violets!!

07-15-2008, 11:40 PM
I only got a 29!!! What a loser!!!!

Oops! I got a 3.:cheering:

07-16-2008, 12:36 AM
Ha Ha Ha. I'm a much better 1930s husband than wife. I got poor on the wife test (having 0 children didn't help that score), and I got very superior on the husband test!

I got a 35. I think its the vulgar stories and red nail polish!!

07-16-2008, 12:50 AM
I only got a 29!!! What a loser!!!!

Well, After re-taking this quiz with my husband, I increased my score to 68!!!! He got a 124.5 if you can believe that!!! He's awesome!

07-16-2008, 01:13 AM
85!! (Very Superior) I'm surprised.

07-16-2008, 01:16 AM
Ha, my boyfriend made fun of me for my miserable score, so I did the husband test for him, thinking he wouldn't do very well...He ended up with like a 94. :teehee:

07-16-2008, 03:14 AM
LOL-WOW! I got a 70, who knew?

I don't know how I did it because I put my cold feet (and frozen hands) on him all the time :) What's wrong with that, anyway? :teehee:

07-16-2008, 09:39 AM
I got a negative 13, I'm a failure. I am a very horrible housewife then and now. I was also a poor husband with a score of 35.

07-16-2008, 09:56 AM
I got a 64 which is surprising.

07-16-2008, 11:01 AM
9 here, I am not surprised though. I am allergic to housework, cleaning and laundry!:teehee:

07-16-2008, 11:09 AM
I got a 68, but I'm pretty traditional. (do like red nail polish though)

07-16-2008, 11:39 AM
I got an 84 so I am very superior. I suspect it has more to do with how much work it is to take care of the kids than how good a wife I am! LOL I seemed to click lots of the 'bad wife' buttons!

HA! I got a 29, but it would have been higher if I had kids or could just remember to clean the mouth of the milk jar before serving. :roflhard:

07-16-2008, 12:25 PM
I got a 75 score :roflhard: . Gee only a Superior I guess I should have hubby take the test.:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:

DH took the test oh great he got a 122 Very Superior! But I new that anyways.


07-16-2008, 01:29 PM
I got a 70 . Which makes me a superior hosewife lol . Hubby does not think so LOL:)

07-16-2008, 02:26 PM

I got a whopping 83! But, must clarify that one: it was what I remember my mother being back in the 1930's - not me at all. Her superior housewife demeanor and independent streak did not rub off on her only kid, I fear. Oh well, have always been a rebel at heart. :wink:

P.S. Out of curiousity took the test in my 2008 frame of mind. I failed miserably. Won't ever disclose my score. My mother would be ashamed of her wayward daughter.:teehee:

That was actually kind of tough to answer some of those questions since they really don't apply. I got a 41 though.

07-16-2008, 02:57 PM
I got an 88 -- which is pretty good for being single -- I cheated by using my nanny family for the children & how I would like to have my household if married.

Speaking of 1930's gramma's -- mine was a pistol and I don't remember her ever sitting down without some kind of handy work. That was the way she was raised -- have to always be working on something -- "idle hands were the devil's handy work". Her MIL was a general PIA -- demanding gram iron the underwear and making sure everything was done "just so". Gram ran 2 households, worked as a post mistress, and ran a general store. I wish I had half the energy to run the 2 households I take care of.

07-16-2008, 03:02 PM
A whopping 13 here...

07-16-2008, 04:34 PM
I got a 73! I AM SUPERWIFE!!!!!! YAY!!!

07-16-2008, 08:33 PM
WOOOHOOO I got a 9 ! That's right, despite the fact that I cook, clean, grocery shop, work full-time, and walk 2 dogs I suck as a housewife. I'm guessing it was the cold feet, making the hubby do his own laundry, and walking about the house in rags. Not having children didn't help either.
My husband knows this whole housewife thing drives me nuts so he has the 1950's Good Housekeeping Guide to being a good wife pinned over his desk !!

07-16-2008, 09:02 PM
Not quite sure how it happened, but I got an 88!
I'm a very superior 1930's housewife!


Now.... to get back to the present, and get those kids to sort their own laundry! :teehee:

07-16-2008, 10:09 PM

07-16-2008, 10:24 PM
I got a 94, dh got a 13....

07-16-2008, 11:39 PM
:roflhard: I got a -59 I'm a very poor[failure] housewife!!!

Boy they had great clothes but unreasonable expectations on how to be a housewife. yea like women shouldn't have feelings? I loved the enthusiastic reactions to marital relations. that cracked me up.

07-17-2008, 08:52 AM
:?? According to the test, a score of 59 means that you are a superior 1930's housewife. I got a 63.

07-17-2008, 09:37 AM
I got a 40! LOL I will be married 40 yrs July 27, wonder what that means???

07-17-2008, 10:23 AM
OMG - I got a 63!! And I didn't even fib! ;P

07-17-2008, 10:37 AM
:doh: Stupid me, Scout. I just caught the negative sign next to your 59.
Yep, that score would surely make you a horrible 1930's housewife.

07-17-2008, 11:25 AM
I am a FAILURE!!!

As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Poor (Failure)

This is one thing I'm glad I'm a failure at!! I definitely could not have been a housewife in the 30's.

07-17-2008, 11:56 AM
I think my score of 63 means that 80 yrs ago I would've been a superior housewife...NOW, maybe not so much :teehee:

07-17-2008, 01:33 PM
i scored a 72... i'm a superior housewife LOL

07-18-2008, 01:28 PM
I got a 37 Poor. That's what comes from working full time with no time to clean. And I wear red nail polish and use "vulgarities". I'm just a 60's type of gal!

07-18-2008, 01:52 PM
I got a 41 as a wife = poor

However as a 1930's husband, I got a 119 Very Superior.

Hmmm, I'm not sure what this means.:teehee:

07-18-2008, 02:14 PM

07-23-2008, 01:41 AM
I got a 40 and think I may have been too king to my self

08-07-2008, 04:41 AM
I some how got 103 :think:. I didn't think I was that old fashioned. Although my sil does call me Betty Crocker. I did always make all the girls clothes when they were little and I still knit all their hats and scarves and such. I do, however, love to put my icy feet on dh. He is asleep anyway, so he doesn't even know. (Unless it makes him dream that he is in a blizzard, lol):mrgreen:
