The decision to divorce is never easy. Its a painful and hard experience. But it might signify the beginning of something, not just the end. A scorned german husband is taking an end to his 12 years old relationship with Laura, in a different way. He recorded himself cutting shared possessions including a TV, an iPhone, chair, bed and a car in half after a breakup and posted the halved items on eBay.
The man, who posted the video to YouTube under the name Der Juli, wrote in accompanying text he was splitting his possessions in half after a breakup.
“Thank you for 12 ‘beautiful’ years Laura,” Der Juli wrote in the video, “you’ve really earned half!”

Der Juli then proceeds to cut through items including an iPhone, chairs, a flatscreen TV, a bed and a car.
“Greetings to my successor!” he wrote in the video’s description.
The reason behind the unusual condition of the items he is selling on ebay is this:
“It was my ex-wife’s opinion that a great part of the things belong to her and she is leagally entitled to exactly the half of all shared possessions, and even those that was my own. And now I am happy giving her exactly the half of everything”
The man then posted the halved items on eBay with starting prices of a single euro, or $1.14.
The items posted on eBay also include halves of a couch, a bicycle, a cordless phone, a motorcycle helmet, a teddy bear and an Apple laptop computer. This video has gone viral with almost 5 million views!
