6-10:  Things in your marriage aren’t too bad but they’re not outstanding either.  Your marriage is more stable than many of those around you, but you know it could be much happier.  Make the decision that having an average marriage is not good enough for you.  You want to take it to the next level and live with more joy at home.

11-15: You have a peaceful home and practice many habits of the happy wife.  By making a few adjustments, you will radiate more joy and experience greater satisfaction in your marriage.  Today life is good and tomorrow will be even better.
