Too often this becomes TruthInTelevision. In RealLife, at least, this sort of thing is why prenuptial agreements came into being, and courts will also allow for sanctions to be pursued against offending parties and their attorneys (and may also deny monetary awards to filers of sanctions whose own behavior left them with no room to talk as per the "unclean hands" doctrine). After all, courts hate divorces just as much as you do, and they ''really'' hate messy ones. If you and your ex run up massive legal bills because you just couldn't act like mature adults and had to fight it out to the bitter end, the court will do its best to punish you for it.
