But what if it doesn't work out?

One innovation over the past twenty years in law school (and university) development seems to be that when buildings, rooms, chairs, etc. are named after donors, the name includes both members of a couple.  I certainly see the reasons for this-- regardless of who directly made the money, both spouses played an important role, and hopefully they collaboratively made the decision to donate. 

But what happens when they divorce?  I haven't heard of this, but imagine that it must have happened somewhere, resulting in an embarrassing blank spot in the sign announcing the "Gregory .......... Zimbalont Courtroom."
