These are definitions for the adjective "divided" which I looked up in the dictionary because I stumbled upon the phrase "divided loyalties" which I didn't understand.
-3. Moved by conflicting interests, emotions, or activities: divided loyalties. (American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language)
-b : directed or moved toward conflicting interests, states, or objects divided loyalties (Merriam-Webster)
I know that "loyalties" means:
feeling or attitude of devoted attachment and affection: My loyalties lie with my family.
So what does it mean that "loyalties are moved"?
