Abstract

The 20-item Marriage Quiz was developed to measure students' beliefs in myths about marriage and family relations. A sample of 279 college students completed the Marriage Quiz. Female students missed significantly fewer items than male students. Students with a less romantic perception of marriage missed significantly fewer items than more romantic students. Students who completed a marriage and family course missed significantly fewer items than students who did not complete the course. The uses of the Marriage Quiz in family life education are outlined.
