Dividing Property Equally -- Taking it to the Extreme

Think your divorce settlement divides everything equally? You've got nothing on the Cambodian couple who literally divided their property in half by sawing their house in two, right down the middle. The wife is keeping the half that's staying on their land, and the husband hauled away his half, mostly in the form of debris and materials. You can see a video of the result here.

This reminds me of the Brooklyn couple who both refused to move out of their home during their divorce, and ended up living in separate parts of the house after a judge ordered them to put up a wall.

Here's hoping your spirit of compromise was a little better-developed than that of these folks, who have taken the idea of equal division of property to the next level.
