Consider them from the standpoint of the kind of marriage partner you would like to have.Please indicate your preferences by a scale similar to the Purdue grading system. First, place a six (6) in front of the four or five items that you consider most important. Second, place a five (5) in front of the four or five items that you consider of next importance to you--above average, but not of most importance. Finally, continue in this same manner until all of the items have been rated--using a four (4) to designate average importance; a three (3), just below average; a two (2), of least importance; and a one (1), of no importance at all. Note: Use a one (1) only if there are items that are totally irrelevant, unimportant, or undesired on your part. Do not leave any spaces blank.
