Not too shabby. The ones they didn't agree on weren't really huge deal breakers. It's not like Kids or No Kids. That would be a HUGE deal breaker. 

These are just fun little questions but all in all I think they will work. 

Jen and I getting married on the other hand would never work. Not only is it illegal, gross and weird but according to this test we would fail miserably.
