Most people don't plan for it, but about half of all marriages end in divorce. And when a couple decides to go their separate ways, their property has to be divided up or sold. Some property is easier to divide than others. A couple's Beanie Baby collection is relatively easy to deal with in divorce. It has some positive value, can be sold, and easily carved into two pieces. Your underwater home, on the other hand, is the opposite. It can't be cut in two or immediately sold and is harder to deal with because of that.
