A: Obey the law

MEN TEND TO FOLLOW LAWS WHILE MARRIED: British researchers say they’ve found that men who adhere to law while married tend to increase their criminality when their marriage broke down. To find this, researchers said they used data involving more than 400 men born in South London for almost 50-years. Researchers say the effects of separation on patterns of criminality were clear, and that men who followed laws while they were married increased their criminal offenses once the marriage went south. Authors of the study say coming out of a family routine and becoming detached from social institutions might be the reason for the behavior as both things made the men feel more vulnurable and gave them more free time.
