Default Problem with merged cells and row height in adjacent two- and three-row columns

Using Office 365 (Desktop Install) on Windows 10.



I'm trying to create a table with very specific formatting and can't seem to get what I want. I want a column with three rows next to a column with two rows, with each row in the first column at minimum height, and the rows in the second column split half-and-half. (The table itself is larger, but this is the problem area.) To illustrate, what I want is:

Code:
 _____ _____
|_____|     |
|_____|-----|
|_____|_____|
But due to minimum row heights applying across merged cells, the best I can come up with looks like this:

Code:
 _____ _____
|_____|     |
|     |_____|
|_____|     |
|_____|_____|
Is there any way to solve this? Splitting cells vertically creates an independently movable divisor; is there any way to create the same for a horizontally split cell?

Create a 6-row table, then merge them in lots of two on the left and three on the right.

Doesn't work. Still ends up with a double-sized row on the left.

Merge the cells on the right-hand side first.
