Splitting up amicably?

Apparently, divorces can be extremely expensive in Cambodia, so this couple have sawn their house in half to avoid the cost. Moeun Rim, the husband has taken his bit of the house to the other side of town. He’s staying with relatives until he can rebuild it. His estranged wife, Nhanh, is staying in this bit on the site of their marital home which is about 56 miles from Phnom Penh. They split the land equally between their two daughters, although not by, you’d imagine, using a chainsaw as well.
