    D. marriage effect helps MEN (87%) more then Women (55%)
    E. Being married is more a protective factor then having a GF
    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that more than half of Canadians are not interested in marriage and this disinterest has been on the decline, with common law relationships becoming more popular. This can be attributed to several factors:
    1) Society lacking the financial resources to spend on marriage, as the average cost ranges from 30-50K.
    2) Shifts in attitudes, where more Canadians do not see the need for the formality of marriage.
    3) The increasing number of women in the workforce, leading to less dependence on men. Additionally, a study by Gluc found that marriage had a protective factor in over 50% of cases, with a higher effect on men (87%) compared to women (55%). Overall, being married is seen as a more protective factor than having a girlfriend.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. 1) large family size: if by age of 10- has 5 siblings = 2X chance of crime
    B. Birth order: Later childs more crime- as they have more peer influence 
    C. Child rearing methods: best is authoritative.  A mix of supervision / parental discipline [strict / unstable cause bad behavior]
    D. Trauma theory: damage to the brain due to seperation stress Life-course theory: continued negative exp + stress cause one to break inside = crime
    Explanation
    The answer explains that there are several influencing factors that can contribute to an increased chance of engaging in criminal behavior. These factors include having a large family size, with individuals who have 5 siblings by the age of 10 being twice as likely to commit crimes. Birth order also plays a role, with later-born children being more likely to engage in criminal behavior due to increased peer influence. The answer also mentions that authoritative child-rearing methods are considered the best, as a mix of supervision and parental discipline can help prevent bad behavior. Additionally, trauma theory suggests that damage to the brain due to separation stress can lead to criminal behavior, while life-course theory posits that continued negative experiences and stress can cause individuals to "break inside" and turn to crime.

    A. Similar risk factors- 70% stuck in same cycle
    B. Parental effects: learned value from parents- if 2 parents in jail= Double negative odds
    C. Sibling effect: 30% of males are caught offending with brother of close age
    D. Genetics:  may have APD or anger issues- shown by adopted studies
    E. Offical bias against: X family is known- so treated in a different way
    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that crime is inter-generational due to a combination of factors. Firstly, similar risk factors contribute to 70% of individuals being stuck in the same cycle of crime. Secondly, parental effects play a role, as individuals learn values from their parents, and if both parents are in jail, the odds of negative outcomes are doubled. Thirdly, the sibling effect is mentioned, with 30% of males being caught offending with a brother of a similar age. Additionally, genetics may contribute to individuals having antisocial personality disorder or anger issues, as shown by adopted studies. Lastly, there is official bias against certain families, leading to differential treatment based on reputation.

The information further provides statistics about mothers and fathers, such as 80% of jailed mothers having kids under 18, 50% being the primary caregiver, and 66% lacking job or high school education. The average income for these mothers is $700 per month, and 66% of incarcerations are linked to substance abuse.

    B. 48% of common law divorced- will be more likely to divorce again * Manitoba highest *Quebec lowest
    Explanation

Additionally, the answer mentions that couples with children under 18 are more likely to stay together for the sake of the child. The information about Manitoba having the highest divorce rate and Quebec having the lowest divorce rate is not directly related to the explanation provided.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Child hates parents- as less emotional support- more so if father [as if custody not allowed may adopt mother's opinion or anger of isolation] *** only 10% of 800 post 15 yrs of kids thought divorce was good on contrast to parents (50-80%)

    C. Child becomes unstable- as stress to parents = hot --> cold relationships confuses the kid
    D. Boys + mother become more hostile. then girls with mother that is divorced. Before marriage 'feel like going to get divorced' is 2X likely *** step family does not help- 70--> 100X more likely to be harmed by step family.
    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that a child may hate their parents due to less emotional support, especially if the father has custody and may adopt the mother's opinion or anger of isolation. This is supported by the fact that only 10% of children, compared to 50-80% of parents, think divorce is good. Additionally, divorced fathers are more likely to remarry than divorced mothers, causing instability and confusion for the child. Boys with divorced mothers become more hostile than girls, and there is a higher likelihood of feeling like getting divorced before marriage. Furthermore, step families are not helpful and can increase the likelihood of harm for the child.

    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that the separation between parents due to custody arrangements can have negative effects on a child's education. This can be attributed to the child having to move to new schools, which can disrupt their academic progress. Additionally, an inconsistent schedule resulting from the separation can also contribute to a decline in grades. Furthermore, the answer implies that this can lead to long-term consequences such as lower pay and reduced education attainment throughout the child's life.
