Unfortunately, the golden years of Alice and Bob's marriage are past. Where once they loved each other, now they can barely speak without ending up in a snarling, spitting argument. As a result, [[CaptainObvious they divorce]]. Naturally enough, each is entitled to a fair share of the marital property, and each expects to get what they think is coming to them.

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.
