From Small Blessings by Martha Woodroof

bifurcated – His whole life, Tom was beginning to realize, had been bifurcated by Henry’s arrival. The years before Henry sat on one side; the thirty-some hours after Henry on the other.

Bifurcate means divide into two branches or forks. That seems evident in the context of the sentence. I don’t recall coming across the word before.
