It is often said that two people can live together more cheaply than each on their own. The corollary to that is it is cheaper to keep one household than two. Divorcing couples face this dilemma. Should one of them move out during the divorce proceedings? The answer is, It depends on how acrimonious the couple is.
If there is enough space for two, and there is civility, then you each take a side of the house. If there is a guest house, one of you move there. If there is vindictive fighting, or worse, domestic violence, it is definitely worth leaving and setting up another household regardless of the cost. Don’t risk harm from an enraged spouse, and don’t risk a fake claim of domestic violence either.
Often, both parties will need to cut down on the lifestyle when there are two households coming from one. It is a fact of divorce for many couples.
