Leaving the family: A divorce's impact

When you decide to get married, you're not just marrying your spouse. In fact, there's an old saying that states, "You're not just marrying your spouse, you're marrying their family."

This penalty applies regardless of the person's level of intoxication; if he or she is over the limit, then an IID is required.
