Despite his high hopes of fighting for his marriage, Nota looked defeated while speaking to DJ Sbu on The Hustler's Corner, saying he tried his best to make a great final impression:

"I tried my best to look good. I was dressed in a suit that she had made; I combed my hair and made sure my cologne smelled fresh. I was like, 'I'm leaving a great last impression,' and that was it."

Moreover, Nota spoke about how he felt after the divorce was settled:

"'Closure' is a good description because, as a man, you're most obsessed about not failing, so it's always hard to accept a failure at anything.
"The one thing I didn't want to do was give up. Whatever goes down, at least I didn't give up; let's go down fighting.

Life, career and business coach, Penny Holburn, gave Briefly News insight into people's reactions to divorce:

"The effects of divorce vary from person to person. Even with a very short marriage, a divorce can be very difficult and traumatic. Essentially, the ending of a marriage means the end of life as one expected it.
"So, plans and dreams are no longer possible, which is very difficult for most people, even if they do want the divorce or know it needs to happen."
