Cambodia’s Version of an Amicable, Court-Free Divorce

Some Cambodians are dissatisfied with their divorce courts – even more so than people in this country are with ours.

A Cambodian Husband decided to divorce his Wife, because he didn’t feel that she tended to his care during an illness.

They decided to try to circumvent the courts as much as possible in their separation.

Husband was willing to leave the kids with Wife, without any wrangling.

And so it was.

Husband sawed the couple’s house in half, right down the middle.

A quick, inexpensive resolution, if not entirely satisfactory.
