Filling for a divorce is often the last resort for couples who can’t seem to resolve the conflict between them, be it something serious or just from falling out of love with each other. Regardless, the children are often the victims in such a situation and authorities in China are trying their best to reduce the rate of divorce, considering that 1.85 million couples filed for a divorce last year alone.

As such, a court in Hubei province has designed a ‘test’ which gives a last chance to the couple to re-evaluate their relationship. According to the spokesperson from the court, the judge will use the score from the test as a reference to see if the couple can survive the marriage crisis. However, they can choose not to take the test if they’ve made up their mind.
