Court Tells Husband To Give Half To His Ex-Cheating-Wife And He Does – Literally

Published 9 years ago

We’ve all heard about divorce settlements splitting the material wealth between two parties. But this man in Germany is taking the Judgment of Solomon to heart. Ordered by a court to ‘split’ their belongings, this man did just that – literally. He used power tools to cut everything in half, including teddy bear, records, sofa, and even the car. All cut somewhat neatly in half.

This serves as a beautiful fitting metaphor for divorce. The destruction of material items shows that strong emotions are at play, something that we might not focus on when wealth is split during the process. And the cutting line is jagged and sometimes bent – after all, nobody escapes divorce without marks on their soul.

The man is selling his half of the things on eBay. The descriptions – in German – suggest that Laura, the now-ex wife in question, might have been unfaithful and dallied with a coworker sometime during their 12 years or marriage. The descriptions of the items are often hilarious.

Glad to see he didn’t cut his sense of humor in half!
