The only thing worse than realizing you and your spouse need to get a divorce? Having that thought dawn on you while you're in the middle of preparing for your appearance on "The Newlywed Game."

Still, that's exactly what happened to HuffPost Divorce blogger Jeanne Goshe. In an interview with HuffPost Live Wednesday, Goshe opened up about how hearing her husband answer questions about their future together made her realize their marriage wasn't going to work.

"He really wanted to prepare for the show so we did practice questions," Goshe told host Nancy Redd. "The goal is to know what your spouse is going to say if they ask you a question so you have the same answers. There were [questions] like, 'When are you going to start having kids?' and things like that, and honestly, when I started thinking about it, just for the game show, I [thought], 'I would never have kids with this guy!'"

She added: "It's something I could have thought about before we got married. But the 'The Newlywed Game' really brought it to light."
