A long feuding Williamsburg couple has been ordered to divide their home in half with a wall, as they go through a bitter divorce, according to the New York Post. Pinchs and Nechama Gold have two weeks to decide where the wall will go, or the court will decide for them. The couple has been married for 21 years, but the wife has kicked the husband out of the
bedroom, accusing him of verbal abuse. In May, her lawyer asked the court for temporary exclusive occupancy, but for now the wall is a way to allow the parents and five children to stay under the same roof. Pinchs has drawn up a plan allotting Nechama an extra 700 square feet, since the kids will live on her side of the 3,000-square-foot house. This is not the first time such a situation has arisen in Brooklyn. In October 2008, Chana and Simon Taub, a divorcing Borough Park couple, also split their home
in half. [Post]
