Picture of the day

Couple saw home in half
China Daily--A married couple in Cambodia who had "finally had enough" of each other have gone their separate ways by literally cutting their home in half.

The wife will stay put with the upright half while her husband has carried away his half to start again on the other side of the village.

Neighbours said the couple saw the radical action as the most cost-efficient and equitable way to avoid each other in a country where divorce lawyers can be expensive.

Vorng Morn, the headman of Cheach village, fifty miles from the capital Phnom Penh, told the Phnom Penh Post: "We tried to persuade them to think clearly before they did this because they had been married for nearly 40 years. But they did not listen."

I guess its official that they split. Must be fans of King Solomon. Just glad that they didn't start cutting up the cows and chickens. They must have had a even number of them. But props to Vorng, this was a clever way of decided who gets what.
