Cambodian couple saw home in half to avoid messy divorce

To some of you this will be madness; to others, blissful sanity:

An estranged Cambodian couple married for nearly 40 years have split their home 50-50 — sawing it in half to avoid the country's complicated, expensive divorce laws, the BBC tells us. Moeun and Nhanhy Rim also divided their land into four parcels — one for each of them and their two children.

Moeun Rim has carted away his fixer-upper and relocated elsewhere in Prey Veng province, about 60 miles outside the capital, Phnom Penh.

The last straw? Rim accused his wife of neglecting him when he was sick.

Although they have split up, they're still legally married, a local lawyer says.
