Every time there's a divorce in media, the individuals involved never decide to handle it in a sane, rational manner. They always be as petty, vindictive and spiteful as possible, in a "Who Can Hurt The Other The Most?"-style contest. It's even worse when there are children in the picture, where even then, the custody battle might have more to do with hurting the ex than deciding what's best for the kids.

-->'''Husband:''' You never loved Hank like I loved Hank!
-->'''Wife:''' You never loved ''me'' like you loved Hank!
* In ''[[Film/StarTrek Star Trek (2009)]]'', the conflict had already finished and Dr. Leonard [=McCoy=] tells Kirk that his ex-wife took everything from him.
--> Well, I got nowhere else to go. The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I got left is my bones.
** And thus is born a great friendship and a famous nickname.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''; Ms. Thompson's ex-husband clearly hated her, so much that one asset she gained from him was a necklace that carried [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent a curse of lycanthropy]]; this was covert problem among students until Numbah Four managed to break the curse by grabbing it. (She was grateful, but not enough to bend the rules and up his grades.)

** While there's never really any detail given to how the divorce between the Van Houtens went down, it presumably didnt go well for Kirk, as he spends the seasonse between the divorce and eventual remarriage living in a men's shelter and working ridiculously low level jobs. Milhouse also mentions that his parents fought over custody of him, but it was [[ButtMonkey ''because neither of them wanted custody'']].

* The eponymous ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' did the whole "dividing possessions in half over a conflict" thing. Subverted, in that there was no divorce involved.
