Divorced Couple Splits House in Half

Simon and Chana Taub seem to agree on only one thing: The house is mine.

The couple wants a divorce, but both of them refuse to move out of their New York home. To solve the matter, the court ordered a sand-colored wall built through the middle of their living room.

Simon can only get to his dining room by going up a neighbor's outside stairs, stepping over a balcony, and climbing through a window. Chana has easier access to the second floor, but she complains that Simon still makes her life a nightmare by yelling, banging on walls, and turning off her heat when it's cold out. They each vow to stay in the house until the other moves—but it doesn't look like that'll be happening anytime soon.
