After using the Barbie test to evaluate their partners, women are again using some kind of strange test on the Internet to get to know their boyfriends better. In a new trend on TikTok, women ask the men in their lives how many times a day they think about the Roman Empire. Yes, you read that right!
A test of the Roman Empire takes over the Internet
In a recent trend, women share their surprise at realizing that their male partners and friends frequently think about the Roman Empire, a historical era that lasted from 27 BC to 27 BC. C. until 476 AD. C., much more than anyone could expect.
Reverend Kelsey Lewis Vincent stumbled upon this hidden fascination that many men seem to have with this historical period after watching an Instagram video online. In a Twitter post, Vincent explained: “I saw an IG Reel that said something like ‘Women have no idea how often the men in their lives think about the Roman Empire.'”
And this led her to a strange discovery: “So I asked my husband, ‘How often do you think about the Roman Empire?’ And without missing a beat he said ‘Every day’. EVERYONE! Why!?”

While another wondered why men loved the Roman Empire: “I wonder what movies/books did such a good job of making this Era so prominent in their thoughts. I KNOW they weren’t high school test books.”

One user joked in the most wifey way possible: “My husband just responded ‘Constantly.'” Great, is that why you don’t remember that my sweaters can’t go in the dryer?
