Divorce Test

Just like those old Cosmo tests … maybe they are still doing them? I haven’t looked at a Cosmo in a long time.

From Huff Post Divorce column.

If divorce is on your mind, here are 10 simple true-or-false questions to ask yourself before splitting:

1. True or False: In the last six months, my spouse has changed their exercise, dress and grooming regime to look younger or fitter.

2. True or False: I have not had sex with my spouse in over one month.

3. True or False: I suspect that my spouse is cheating.

4. True or False: I can’t remember the last time sex was good.

5. True or False: I can’t remember why I married my spouse in the first place.

6. True or False: I don’t have access to the marital accounts, or the access that I have is very limited.

7. True or False: I am currently involved in a romantic relationship with someone other than my spouse.

8. True or False: My spouse has been diagnosed with a mental disorder/disease and fails to seek counseling or medical treatment.

9. True or False: My spouse has an addiction to drugs, alcohol, porn, gambling, shopping, etc. but fails to seek treatment to address the addiction.

10. True or False: We fight more than we laugh.

If you answered TRUE to 1 or 2 questions, you are probably in need of some marital counseling or a good, old-fashioned date night with your spouse that includes a heart-to-heart conversation.

If you answered TRUE to 2-5 questions, your marriage is salvageable but will take a lot of work. You need to ask yourself, “Does my desire to fix this marriage outweigh my exhaustion at trying to do so?” If so, then you should explore marital counseling. It is also advisable to consult with a lawyer just to ensure that you know your rights.

If you answered TRUE to more than 5 questions, contact a family attorney.

So I scored 4.
