California residents may think of felonies as violent crimes like homicide, rape and arson, and they may be surprised to learn that an individual could be branded a felon for innocuous behavior such as making an unusual noise in a post office or handling a crate of foreign primates without first donning waterproof footwear. Even calling in sick just to get a day off is a felony in some situations.

For instance, they have fewer tangible assets and get married later in life. Furthermore, both parties to a marriage are likely to earn money regardless of gender.

The many reasons couples aren't happy

This was according to a study conducted by individuals from the University of Georgia and the University of Texas.

Understanding what is real and what is not about splitting up
