  1. This is awesome. So many people dont know this stuff or get false info. if you are misinfromed it could cause so many problems for you and between people. I have seen it so many times. Sometimes people want to get things over with and just let stuff go and they regret it later! Get informed I always say!

  2. I like quizzes when I’m not being graded! I did go over each one – LOL #6 “GOTCHA”. Wow, another example of how much better the Canadians handle things there than in the U.S. The divorce law and outcomes in Nevada highly favor women and I’ve seen some men absolutely ruined. And I’m all for fairness but the judges are super harsh. Hence, why no marriage for me ever even with a prenup. Along with communication isn’t financial stress another big cause, Lisa? Great post, our friend!! 🙂

    1. Thanks Mike 🙂 It didn’t specifically say financial stress but I imagine that’s a biggie, probably up there in the top 5. PreNup would certainly help to prevent some of the battles. That’s too bad that there is gender bias in Nevada but I imagine it’s the ingrained children belong with the mother idea, which isn’t always the case and they certainly NEED their fathers!

  3. Hi Lisa,

    This is fun indeed 🙂

    I liked that you try to lighten up the air with this quiz. Yes, no divorce is easy, either on the person going through it nor the kids, if any involved. Only the person going through it knows what they have to handle, yet they come out strong (those who do) and such people are commendable, aren’t they?

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend 🙂

    1. Thanks Harleena! I agree with you. I’m glad you enjoyed the quiz and yes it was definitely supposed to be light hearted. 🙂

  4. Hehe, it is quite funny at a first glance but it can be indeed a helpful one to those literally want to check out their possibilities of how strong are the relationships between the two people.
