* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'' gives us lesbian criminal lawyer [[Creator/CarrieAnneMoss Jeri Hogarth]], who's going through a divorce with her spouse Wendy and is taking up an affair with her secretary Pam. It's extremely bitter, with Wendy demanding ''75%'' of Jeri's assets and blackmailing her into agreeing. Jeri in turn asks Jessica to dig up dirty information on Wendy to blackmail in return. Jessica, in a drunken depression, resorts to outright threats against Wendy, who ups her demand to ''90%'' of Jeri's assets in response. Jeri ultimately tries to make a bargain to use [[Creator/DavidTennant Kilgrave]] and his mind control powers to force Wendy to agree to lesser terms, but he orders Wendy to kill Jeri, and the end result is that Pam winds up killing Wendy in Jeri's defense.

* A DaveBerg MADMagazine cartoon from the 70's uses this as a topic, with a couple bitterly, and physically, fighting in court over every single asset, EXCEPT the Mercedes, which both are fine giving to the other person. This is because this was right in the middle of the gas crisis of the 70's during the oil embargo, and fuel for a muscle car like that was like having to buy gallons of liquid gold.

* ''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.)
