A Cambodian couple who have decided to separate are dividing their home — literally. The wife is keeping the half that is still standing, and the husband has carried off pieces of the home to put up in a nearby field. (Didn't something like this happen in Mary Karr's The Liars Club?) The couple decided to halve the home after deciding that going to court to divvy up their possessions would be too expensive. Village chief Vorng Morn said the pair didn't separate over anything big. "I and other people in the village tried to persuade them to think clearly before they did this because they had been married for nearly 40 years, but they didn't listen." [Daily Mail]
