115 How Well Do You Know Your Filipina Wife?

April 30, 2021

I found an article I liked and will link it for you as well as the questions in the description box, to a quiz about how well you know your Filipina.  Please subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea for any help I can provide for foreigners interested in a Filipina or for those who already are; many of the topics can help anyone.  I only scored a 7.5 which is not all that good, but that doesn’t surprise me, especially when reading the part about how to understand your score. I will post the questions in the description box. I want to make marriage great again and think most people will be miserable alone.

From the article-When you review your answers together, remember that it's your partner who decides whether you earn a point for each answer. 

Scoring is not the key to this quiz—the conversation is—but here's a possible scoring guide:

If you (or your partner) score 16+ points: You know your partner very well—and if you scored more than 16, and you've been with your partner for less than six months, you're probably a bit intense in your relationship style. 

If you score 10-15 points: You know your partner pretty well. In what categories do you know them less well? Maybe the two of you haven't talked much about your childhood experiences, or you've shied away from talking about topics related to negative emotions. Aim to learn the answers now.

If you score 5-9 points: Maybe you've only been together a short time, maybe you don't talk to each other much, or maybe your conversations tend to be of a particular type (e.g., you're both in the same profession and mainly talk about work.)  Ask yourself now if your personal lives or careers are so demanding that you're not getting a chance to talk and connect.  Would it be worth bringing more balance to your relationship?

If you score 0-4 points: The good news is there's lots of room for improvement here.

Why these questions? 

These questions are designed to tap into a range of positive and negative emotions. The questions about negative emotions and fears are included because strong relationships involve being willing to be vulnerable with each other. Questions about childhood are included because close couples typically understand the formative experiences that made each other who they are today. And the lighter, more fun questions are included because it's important to have conversations about your positive emotions, too. 

(Note: These questions are designed for people who have been together for several years or more. If your relationship is newer, adjust your expectations accordingly.)
