    Re: $1 billion divorce settlement 'disappointing'

    The sexist attitudes in this thread are sad. It doesn't matter what she wants to spend the money on. She could want to start a foundation to fund glass eyes for blind kitties. It does not matter. If she is entitled to more then she should get what she is entitled to or file the appeal.

    Isn't the entire point of marriage that both parties become one? if he wanted a sperm receptacle he could've had one, he took on a wife, that brings with it obligations, including supporting her for a period after divorce, if he has 20 bucks to his name she gets 10, if 20 billion....

    it's not like she was the higher earning party, then my opinion would be slightly different, but still. they were married since 1988, wether you agree or not, she is ethically entitled to part of the fruits of the business who's owner she stood by for over two decades. this wasn't a kim Kardashian marriage....

    There is nothing to understand, on an ethical level. She does not own the company. She wishes to dissolve her partnership with her husband, and simultaneously demand an almost unusable amount of money for absolutely nothing. That is all there is to it.

    He is entitled to all of what he has legally made from a company that he owns. He may or may not be greedy -- I don't know. But to refuse to be pilfered, in and of itself, is not greed. It's the principle of not letting oneself be used.

    And please note that he has not tried to hold his money from her anyway. He has offered her dramatically more than she could ever possibly justify deserving, or needing.

    Again, your "ethics" have nothing to do with law and divorce.

    Ok. By that logic, would you be remiss in being upset if your partner took your car, which you purchased before marriage, and which was in your name and used by you, and sold it without asking?

    No one ever becomes totally "one" with anyone, and relationships should be about respect of consent and mutual consideration.

    And at any rate, she wishes to dissolve that relationship, so what does it matter?

    Well, I am not a sexist, so my opinion would be exactly the same if she were the higher earning party and he wanted a billion dollars for nothing.

    Um, I never said they did. Will you address the point, or not, please?

    Why? Your point is based on your ethics and have little to do with how this played out. Again, if it were otherwise she would not have seen the $1 billion she already has.

    Could you explain how you came to that conclusion?

    if it were registered to both of us she couldn't sell it without both signatures on the title. the last thing I worry about though is a jilted lover wanting my hoopdy


    any claims she has to property though are valid, and it's up to either a division of property agreement or if parties are unreasonable, a judge. I don't personally believe a marriage should be a casual agreement. you can't jusdt marry someone then after twenty years separate with what you came in with. it's not right and the law recognizes that. personally I think she doesn't deserve half, but certainly more then 1 billion out of the worth of that company.

    No doubt.

    But it doesn't matter what she says; if she won't sign it, you know she doesn't truly love you...so move on.
