Xue Mindan, a female judge from Xi’an Weiyang People’s Court, created multiple versions of the exam. “If mutual conflicts are the primary reason, I will focus more on spouse relationships. If the required split roots from mother and daughter-in-law disputes, questions will be changed,” Xue said.
According to the answers, judges can make a preliminary analysis. For couples who have a chance to heal the rift, jurors can strive for reconciliation. When all mediation attempts fail, cases come to trails.
“The test helps save judicial resources. It is also useful as a fairer metric, as the evidence presented by the plaintiff can sometimes be biased,” Xue added.
