It's sad that Jim and Paula's marriage ended in an angry divorce.

HI,
Does "an angry divorce" in the above sound good to you? If yes, how could a divorce be angry? So, is it better to rewrite it as "an unpleasant divorce?" Thanks.

I see it as no more than the personification of the word divorce, which has none of the attributes suggested here. We are transfering the human emotion to the inanimate legal action. Therefore, I can see any of the adjectives used appropriately.

Yes, I would opt for "transferred epithet" too.

Not really.

A divorce can be:
rancorous
acrimonious
bitter

I accept 'angry divorce' without analysis, but unpleasant would be good, too.
