Hall of Famer Deion Sanders is smart not to move out of his palatial home while his divorce is being settled.

According to a report by TMZ, Sanders and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Pilar, have made the decision to continue living in their home together.

Although many people will wonder what the colorful NFL analyst is thinking, mainly LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant, who recently divorced and moved out of his home, Sanders is completely in bounds here.

The house belongs to him first and foremost. 

And not only is his home much larger than the average American's, it's extremely larger than the average American's. 

The home is reported to be more than 29,000 square feet and boast double-digit bedrooms and bathrooms. So, technically, Sanders and his wife never have to cross paths.

The two could even sleep in a different bedroom each night throughout the week and still never bump into each other. The same goes for the bathroom situation. 

The home features 109 acres in all, so Sanders would be more in the wrong if he asked his wife to leave. In reality, there is plenty of room there for her and him both to live peacefully while the divorce works itself out.

The taboo of divorce is long gone in today's society of celebrity weddings and 72-day marriages, so there's absolutely nothing wrong with living with your ex-wife for a little while.

Who knows, maybe the time apart will bring them closer, and rekindle that old fire.
