Pet custody battles are becoming more and more common. When married pet owners divorce, the animal they shared often finds itself at the center of their split.

Judging by box office returns, hundreds of thousands of people went to see “Marley & Me,” the movie about that goofy yellow Lab. My ex-boyfriend was most certainly not one of them.
