As the expression goes, the rich ARE different…and so are their divorces. First, there is much more money available to spend on divorce lawyers. Secondly, there is more to fight over. Thirdly, spouses have a holier than thou mindset, with the wives being a lot more savvy than the rest of the world’s wives. That’s highly likely how they got here in the first place.
But perhaps the biggest difference in divorces amongst the rich, is the prenuptial agreement. It is generally air tight, often challenged, and to no avail. If you have assets, or are marrying someone who does, don’t get married without one.
Prenuptial agreements can control almost anything between the parties, from the amount or type of sex the couple will have to who will walk the dog at night. The exception is children’s issues. That is entirely up to the courts. And based upon the best interests of the child at the specific time. But for everything else, the prenuptial agreement sets forth the terms of marriage and divorce up front and without mistake. And at least 30 days before any wedding.
