About This Quiz

Greek mythology really seemed to thrive on extreme love and conflict. Not a lot of people had an easy time in any of those stories, even if they were gods. The world was tumultuous for everyone, perhaps as a reflection of the real world of the people creating the stories as a way to make us all feel a little bit better about our place in the world. Love wasn't easy for anyone, so you didn't have to feel like you were alone and weird if you and your own partner had some issues. Likewise, when things were going well, you had lots of places to look to guide you as to why that might be so. Divine intervention, perseverance, fate - it was all in there somewhere.

There's very likely a duo in Greek mythology to mirror just about any relationship you can think of, including your own. In fact, we're so confident of that we're willing to bet that if you tell us a bit about your relationship we'll be able to pick out the perfect couple from mythology to represent you and that special someone in your life. All you have to do is take the quiz and see for yourself!
