I have had a few cases recently that ended in arguments about household goods, property — the stuff we have every day. It was surprising to me that despite the costs of multiple lawyers and mediators, folks were unable to give in on used furniture items. I need to remember that it is not about the furniture, it is about the anxiety of the divorce, the loss and grief and the anger and fear. When you are getting divorced you can spend twice the cost of new furniture on arguing over ten year old items but for some reason we all want that particular chair or particular set of dishes. There is nothing logical about it, it is all about humans and emotion. I guess my advice is to try to jump that barrier and let the stuff go so you can move on with your life. I cannot advise too much about this, because when it happened to me I fought over the fireplace tongs we bought at Target. What can I say???
