Dividing Wall

It's not uncommon for divorcing couples in New York City to continue living under the same roof. They follow judges' orders and set boundaries as to which spouse will use what part of the house when. But Simon and Chana Taub, residents of a house valued at over $900,000 in a heavily Orthodox Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, raised their dispute to a new level: under orders from a judge, a literal wall was built down the middle of their home.  The dividing wall gave Chana access to the bedrooms and kitchen, and Simon access to the living room and dining room. Three of their children stayed with her, one with him.  It's not as if the Taubs had no other options. Another home two doors down also belonged to them. But both insisted they wanted to stay in the first house.
