In The Examination of Husbands (El examen de maridos) Agnes, she decides to put her suitors through a series of severe tests. However, before starting the contest she falls in love with Don Fadrique. The episode takes place in the middle of the allegations of Don Carlos, another suitor, against the lucky rival. Thus, slave to her pride, Inés begins the examination of husbands.
Shortly afterwards it is discovered that Carlos does not aspire to marry Inés. He has only intervened in the marriage contest because he has believed that Blanca, with whom he is in love, has yielded to the gallantry of Don Fadrique. Once the wrongs are cleared up, the couples fix themselves.
El examen de maridos is one of the three comedies of entanglement by Juan Ruiz de Alarcón conceived around a test:

  • The Likeness to Himself,
  • The Test of Promises
  • and The Examination of Husbands.

These works are inspired by The Novel of the Curious Impertinent by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Example XI of Count Lucanor, The Merchant of Venice, and Les vissionaries by Jean Desmarets.
The authorship of The Examination of Husbands has been much disputed, although most critics consider it Ruiz de Alarcón’s. In this piece it is worth mentioning the character of Doña Inés, one of the most accomplished of all his theater, whom several men court.
Here Ruiz de Alarcón inserts popular sayings, from America and Spain. In addition, his interest in achieving aesthetic excellence in commitment to truth and moral values is perceived.
