“This couple decided to stay in the same residence (during the divorce), which made sense financially,” Mr. Trout said, “but then they took it to another level. One went upstairs and installed an alarm system with a motion detector and the other went to the basement and installed the motion detector going into the basement.

“And then they went even further and decided to take yellow tape on the main floor and divided it nearly in half so that the other wouldn’t cross over into the other side’s territory.”
