80 married couples were given tests to determine similarity in personality. Husbands and wives tend to marry persons similar to themselves in all of the characteristics measured. They tend to grow more alike as they grow older together. Husbands and wives are able to judge whether they are similars or opposites on the basis of the more striking characteristics measured.
