9 Tests To Make Sure Your Boyfriend Is Husband Material

January 14, 2019
If you’ve been on social media lately, you’ve probably seen stories of guys who go out of their way to humiliate their girlfriends all in the name of testing to see if they’re wife material. In-laws are usually the main enforcers of these “tests of character,” which usually involve subjecting poor young women to insane levels of housework and/or dehumanizing tasks.

After reading a couple of stories like this, I wondered what it would be like if the roles were reversed. Ladies, have some fun and appraise your man today with these foolproof husband material tests I came up with 20 minutes ago.

Clog your toilets and insist on not calling a plumber.

Then insist he fix it by himself while your entire extended family watches.

Blow up your parents’ house and have him rebuild it by himself.

While your entire extended family watches. If his name happens to be Bob, then the universe has a joke all setup for you.

Tell him he has to go hunting with nothing but a pen knife because your father demands fresh meat before he agrees to hand you over.

Find a way for your extended family to watch this (without putting them in harm’s way) because this will be mad fun.

While on a date at an expensive restaurant, quietly invite your entire extended family to join you guys.

And have him pay for everyone.

Take him to your village and have him wrestle the strongest guy there.

While the whole village watches.

Secretly make colored photocopies of his important documents then “accidentally” set them on fire in his presence.

Just to see how he’ll react. Set up cameras to catch his reaction from different angles so your extended family can watch.

Break his finger.

This isn’t even a test. You know he’ll react badly because of the pain. But remember, ladies, the point of this exercise is to have fun, even if that includes a little violence.

Sleep with his best friend.

Nothing tests a relationship quite like infidelity.

Pick a fight about something irrelevant. When he points out how stupid the fight is, pretend to get angrier and smash the windshield of his car.

Be on that Beyonce shit!


The important thing is that you have fun with it.
