Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Think you know all about the man on the other side of the dinner table? Well, maybe. Let this little book be the judge.

The fact is, no matter how long you've been together, there's probably plenty you don't know about the man in your life. If the two of you are like most couples, you probably talk more about the neighbors and the news than about yourselves. The result: an information gap.

Counselors say that knowing about your partner's past and preferences can be important-even things like "Who was his best friend in grade school?" and "Does he hate squash?" Knowing, they say-even knowing such bits of trivia-is a sign of caring.
Now, that's not to say that if you and he are on the verge of a split, knowing his shoe size will save your relationship. But, as the lady said as she offered chicken soup to the dying man, "It couldn't hurt!"

So grab a pencil and show what you know. The answers, of course, are not in the book; only he can say. So after you've completed the test, ask him to check your answers and figure your score.

The test has 100 questions. Count ten points for each correct answer. Where you miss some of a multi-part question, divide and take partial credit; you'll need all the help you can get. Here's how to rate yourself:
Above 900: Very impressive. In fact, downright amazing.
700-900: Pretty good, but you might want to work a little to polish off your knowledge. Start asking questions...and pay attention.
Below 700: Weak. Ask him to give you a remedial course.

Take the "Do You Know Your Husband?" test. You may find you have something to brag about, or you may be humbled. Either way, just by going over your answers together, you'll learn a little and have some fun as well. Good luck.

My husband & I had a blast filling these out. We broke the questions into groups of 25 and did it over several weeks instead of all 100 in a night. We laughed a lot & learned a lot about each other!

My hubby and I have been together seven years, and married for one. I bought this for our anniversary. We both scored almost the exact 1,000 points. It was sweet to confirm that we know each other so well, but the questions were kind of dull and not as funny as I was hoping. Between the two books there were about six questions we thought shouldn't have been asked because in a different relationship they could have started an argument. For instance, which of your female friends is he most attracted to? Let's not touch that with a ten foot pole. When was she at her highest weight (or is she now?) First and last name of his old flame? It wasn't quite the romantic game I had in mind. But it was still a fun way to pass the time, and I was surprised how long it took for just 100 questions.

I bought this one and 'Do You Know Your Wife,' and my husband and I filled them out. He was overseas and filled out the wife one, while I filled out the husband one and then we sent them to eachother to correct. The questions were cute and we learned an little about eachother that we didn't know. I would get this for fun and would be great for an anniversary night.

I purchased the "Do You Know Your Wife" and "Do You Know Your Husband" quizzes for an at home date night I planned for my husband and I. We actually took the quizzes on the 8th anniversary of our first date. It was so much fun to see just how much we knew about each other after 8 years together. A few of the questions didn't really apply to us, but overall, the quiz was a lot of fun. We had a great time filling out the booklets and then reading each others answers. I have since recommended these booklets to several friends as a fun addition to date night.

I bought both versions for an activity for a date night in. We had fun filling them out and sharing our answers. It doesn't take that long, but we enjoyed it. Sure some of the questions are silly and if you have been together a long time you will probably know a lot of the answers. Overall though I still felt it was a fun way to connect. If you both are open or have a doughy romantic side you'll probably enjoy this.

Really opened my eyes to how little I apparently pay attention. My goal is to change this. When we first met and were married I knew all these quirky things and now I know very little. Too much attention on the kids I guess.

Cover looks like something from the '50's. Timeless questions to bounce off your spouse. Love keeping these kinds of books in the car for long road trips just to keep conversations going. Great for long waits in a waiting room, airports or when stuck in a hotel room. Good questions which opens up dialogue on just about any subject. Pair it up with Do You Know Your Wife. Dont' know why they don't just sell it as a set. Would recommend using pencil when checking off your answers, you can always pass the books along to another couple to enjoy which is what I did.
