    Divorce easier

    "Divorce shouldn't be made easier nor difficult". Is this sentence correct?

    Re: Divorce easier

    "Easier" is not the same form of word as "difficult". Do you know the difference between adjectives, comparatives and superlatives?

    You spelt "correct" incorrectly.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sorry, no. Should I say "Divorce shouldn't be made easy nor difficult?" or "Easier nor more difficult?". I read it on internet "Should divorce be made easier or more difficult?".

    Re: Divorce easier

    Adjective - comparative - superlative:

    Easy - easier - easiest
    Difficult - more difficult - most difficult

    You need to use either "easy" and "difficult" or "easier" and "more difficult".

    Given that your original used "easier", I suggest "Divorce should be made neither easier nor more difficult". Effectively, it says that the process of getting a divorce should stay the same.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
