The science of marriage success then and now

"The April 1924 issue of Science and Invention magazine ran an article by Hugo Gernsback, the magazine’s publisher, which examined the different “scientific” ways to determine if a marriage will succeed or fail." See highlights in  http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/paleofuture/2012/05/mechanical-matchmaking-the-science-of-love-in-the-1920s/ The body odor test sounds quite bizarre, but you have to realize that in the 1920s deodorants were not available in drug stores.

For better accuracy in prediction marriage success, look into the work of the most recognized expert in the field today, John Gottman.  See http://kallahmagazine.blogspot.com/2012/10/marriages-may-be-made-in-heaven-but.html
