How to give a guy a premarital suitability exam

Before the "I do" she must choose
A man that does well in dance shoes
His psyche gives a clue
When employing step two
Ply him to the limit with booze

    Loved it Duke. I think I would have certainly fail that test if it was indeed administered.

    I have heard this from many divorced people. Your x probably wanted to take advantage of your good nature and hid things from you. Alcohol is a great (if used sparingly) revealer of the inner core of a soul. Thanks for visiting. You have a marvelous heart!

    Yes indeed Duke!...A lady I took dancing gave me that very same exam and gave me a solid 'F' but she took pity and married me anyway...

    Smiling, this is actually good sound advice, for booze loosens the lips as well as the hips. Always enjoy your writes Duke. Hugs

    Hahaha, the master of limericks does it again. You should have given me this advice 30 years ago, Duke. I love your poem. I do; Id o; Ido. Licia :-)

    haha, A test that many of us women failed to employ!!

    Haha, so clever and witty you always are, Duke! This is an awesome limerick, but coming from the master of limericks himself- that comes to no surprise to me! Thanks again sooooo much for all of your continual support and insanely motivating and inspiring words on my poetry, it's people like you that make me feel so proud to be a poet!

    This has nothing to do with death,,, I'm referring to my swan poem. Unless your're talking of marriage,,,, I've never been married,,,, never wanted to sign that paper ;} Though I do like the verse ;}

    Debbie, you are right. Your poem does talk about dancing and it got me to thinking about something I have felt for a while. It doesn't matter whether it's a marriage or not. In any serious relationship, we want to know what is at the core of our partner's soul. I know I become more friendly after a drink. It's because I have a true love for most people.

    Karen, I knew a guy who was extremely funny and pleasant to be around. He ended up divorced. His mean streak and how he really felt only came out when he became intoxicated. But when it did-oh brother!
