Have You Got What it Takes to be a Politician’s Wife? Take This Quiz and Find Out

How to Marry a Politician and SurviveIn an article for The Star, Helen Grange pulled out some quality tips from How to Marry a Politician and Survive by Nia Magoulianiti-McGregor, along with a fun quiz to assess if you have what it takes to be a politician’s wife.

The book, Grange says, is “a delightfully irreverent guide to luring a distinguished man in public office down the aisle, then enjoying the bounties of your conquest.”

It is divided into ten well-researched and thoroughly tongue-in-cheek chapters, covering everything from the personality of a politician, flirt coaching, and how to be bootylicious. There is also a glossary of terms invaluable for aspiring politicians’ wives.

Try the test to see where, on a scale of pale-lipsticked practicality to flamboyant trophy-hunter, you fall:


Take the quiz

1. Veronica Lario is …

a) Former Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi’s estranged wife, who scored big-time after she left that geriatric.
b) Someone who should have known better.
c) A new perfume.

2. Nkandla renovations cost:

a) Around R246 million.
b) Pay Back the Money.
c) A few million but I hear security upgrades and fire pools are very expensive. (I wouldn’t mind a fire pool. Er, what is a fire pool?)
