splitting it 50/50 right up the middle

April 3rd, 2008


I’ve been known to take things a little too literally myself, so this article appeals to me on some level.

BELGRADE, Serbia – A Serb farmer used a grinding machine to cut in half his farm tools and machines to comply with a court ruling that he must share all his property with his ex-wife, local media reported on Thursday.

Branko Zivkov, 76, told Belgrade daily Kurir he had been ready to give his wife Vukadinka her equal share of everything earned during their 45-year marriage, but was furious at being asked to give away half his farming equipment.

Instead, he bought a grinder and cut in two all his tools, including large items such as cattle scales, a harrow and a sowing machine.

“I still haven’t decided how to split the cow,” he told the newspaper.  “She should just say what she wants — the part with the horns or the part with the tail.”

I recently heard someone say (not sure if it was on TV or not) that a person starts thinking about leaving their relationship at the half way point of the total length of the relationship.  That would mean this farmer could’ve been looking at his wife like she was recurring cold sore, on the outside upper lip, on prom night for 22 1/2 years!

With this being true, do you think this is why the “I want half” rule is generally applied?
