The practice of bifurcation granting a divorce while reserving economic issues for later proceedings has several advantages: It can accelerate the end of a bad marriage and allow the parties to get a fresh start more quickly, and it prevents one spouse from holding the other's personal life hostage to economic demands. On the down side, bifurcation can result in two trials rather than one, and it can slow down the resolution of economic issues by removing an important incentive for settlement. See generally Wolk v. Wolk, 318 Pa. Super. 311, 464 A.2d 1359 (1983).
