As soon as he sells his companies, his wife leaves and takes half the money.

Quora question:

What did you do immediately after selling your company?

Answer by Kevin Kruse

"Got divorced and lost half the money. Well not immediately…

As soon as the deal closed I drove home, very excited, and asked my wife to log into our online banking account to confirm the wire transfer went through.

She sat in front of the laptop. I stood behind her, looking over her shoulder at the screen. That boot up sequence took forever (yeah, it was a Windows machine).

Finally, she logs in and clicks the account number and…there it is! A totally life changing amount of money. I feel happy, and relief, so much hard work and…

“Wow, I could leave you now, take half and never work another day the rest of my life,” she said flatly. And then she chuckled as if it were a joke.

Even as a joke I thought it was a weird thought for her to have in that moment. I chuckled.

Two weeks later she sat me down and said she feels disconnected in our marriage. We should go to a counselor to try to save things, but if we can’t fix it, we should split up while we’re still young enough to find someone else and get married again.

Six months later we were separated.

Six months after that we got divorced (yes, she got half plus alimony plus child support).

Six months after that she got engaged to the guitar player from church."

Yep, my parents have a trust set up. It is also good for avoiding inheritance/capital gains/estate/income tax which is why they have it.

Which is absurd if you think about it.... the money is taxed initially, then when your parent's die the government can somehow take 35-40% of the already taxed money simply because they transfer it to you?!?!

[–]JoeAsheville15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy

Federal estate tax exemption for 2017 is $5.45M before that scenario becomes an issue. If your family has that much (or more) in assets, then I have no doubt they know accountants and lawyers for wealth preservation methods. YMMV with state inheritance taxes, however...

Capital Gains taxes are the main problem and what I was referring to. I was a bit off with the 35-40% though.

[–]OriginUnknown points points [recovered] | Copy

I wouldn't get too excited about it. Perhaps it's possible on paper without attracting the IRS, but only a total jackass would go before a judge claiming to live on $1 a year. That is an excellent way to secure a very unfavorable outcome.

[–]Toussant20 points21 points  (8 children) | Copy

He was probably not being literal. But basically, pays himself low bracket income for living essentials and does much of spending through the company, including housing.

[–]OriginUnknown points points [recovered] | Copy

And I would reiterate that judges are not stupid and don't care about your income avoidance strategies. If you live a six figure lifestyle and try to portray humble means when it comes time to pay your spouse, you're gonna have a bad time.

[–]Toussant2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Do you have some direct experience with this? If a judge pisses off a really rich dude, could well end up being stupid.

put all of your money in Bitcoin, nobody can prove that you are the owner.

[–]steelerfaninperu14 points15 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's not that simple. Bitcoin is on the radar.

Legally, if you want to be 100% compliant, you need to treat it like an asset or a stock, reporting your purchase price and your selling price.

Now, if you want to be completely in the dark you could not report it, and probably get away with it. But come selling time (let's say after your hypothetical divorce) all that income could raise some eyebrows.

If you stick to cash sales of BTC you'd be fine, but then you're looking at more legwork and less reliability.

[–]endogenic6 points7 points  (14 children) | Copy

That is not the case. Bitcoin is completely traceable, non-private, and is also not fungible like a true currency must be. The IRS is already having bitcoin exchanges like Coinbase report the activity of all users. The only legit (non-scam) and truly private digital currency out there is Monero (visit r / Monero)

[–]wheresMYsteakAt1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Which needs to be purchased with Bitcoin

[–]endogenic1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Once the funds are in the circular economy of Monero the problem you are suggesting disappears. That's why the important thing is for Monero to be actually used rather than just bought, held, and pumped by price speculators who call themselves investors. But, I digress….

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Getting a joint bank account even when married is something I don't understand. That is pretty much giving the ability for your girlfriend or wife to clean out your bank account if she is mad at you.

There was a story on here a long time ago from a guy who works at a bank. The wife goes to the bank to take out half of the account, since they are getting divorced. The husband shows up to the bank later, having a break down because of what happened.

Look up the story titled "Marriage and Money - A Retail Bankers Perspective"

20 years of marriage, 20 years of alimony. About a third of the total is child support that will end after 10 years.

[–]Gorech1ld3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

This shit right here is why MGTOW is gaining popularity. When a woman can just up and leech off of you after marriage, it makes marriage and relationships in general a huge liability and gamble.

No, seriously, this LITERALLY makes marriage in general gamble. You wanna marry a "sweetheart"? Go ahead, but just be wary that one day she'll probably get tired of you and then divorce you and continue to leech off of you.

God, I swear this alimony shit is inhumane. It's so retarded as well in "feminist" society. Apparently women are equal, but need to leech off of men even after the marriage is over in order to keep up her standards of living.

It still might not protect u if the judge says so. There's been cases were the prenup is thrown out the window on the grounds that she was forced/pressures to sign it. Solution: Don't get married. Don't cohabitate.

Making money is WAY easier than finding love or happiness. But the next time I decide I’ve found the love of my life, a prenup will definitely be involved. ;-)

[–]Ecanonmics2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

They are, but just for what you had before the marriage. That's what TRP doesn't understand. Prenups only protect pre marriage holdings. Anything you earn during the marriage will be split, prenup or no prenup.

[–]theONE8436631 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeh that's why we need to marry up and divorce rape the bitch after lmao.

[–]Seoul_Brother1 point2 points  (7 children) | Copy

So I think we should also have a discussion on what advantages NOT getting a marriage license and having a pre-nup ready would entail in terms of legal protections.

Obviously getting married straight up with marriage license and surrendering your life to one woman who could legally screw you over is asking to lose money, but there could be a case where a woman is decent enough to deserve a union of some kind and you like her enough to wanna have babies. Unfortunately you can't self replicate yet and honestly if she is traditional enough and would actually be a good mother/ keeps fit/ cooks and cleans/ is loyal, wouldn't you wanna keep her? If divorce is inevitable, I'd rather have it so that I can enjoy what time I have with the woman, but protect myself legally and be ready for the day she or I wants the divorce rather than not go through that experience at all.

[–]flashbang1232 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

If you get married, expect to get divorce raped. Over half of all marriages fail these days. You know the odds, you just don't like them.

[–]Seoul_Brother0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

I didn't say that I wasn't expecting it. The reason why I'm asking in the first place is because I expect it lol. I was saying, what legal considerations/ preparation could you do well in advance to protect your assets/ children? Let's say it's doing preventative maintenance to take full on divorce rape to maybe a divorce molestation lol.

I'm not a betting man. I like to be prepared for most negative outcomes.

Why don't u just do the smart thing and not get married.

It's like there's a road that leads to a place you want to go to, but right next to it is field that's littered with mines. You're very aware of the mines being there, but you decide to skip the straight and safe road. You start asking people for maps with the location of each map on the field, you ask for where to find techniques to disarm mines once u step on them, you start looking at semi advanced first aid knowledge for if u get your legs blown up by a mine etc etc. You see how stupid that sounds? Just avoid the minefield and take the regular road. It's safe and will get you to your destination.

[–]EasyChief0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That figure that 50% of divorces end in marriage is a misleading statistic. In a given year there is 1 divorce for every 2 marriages. But that stat completely ignores the tens of thousands of marriages that already exist before a given year. It also doesn't account for people who have multiple marriages and divorces.

In reality, less than 30% of all marriages end in divorce and the divorce rate has been shrinking since the 70s due to a number of factors.

[–]LordThunderbolt2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Explain to me in what universe do u need to be married to have babies? I never understand that moronic argument from guys. "Oh, well one day I wanna have kids so I gotta get married to her", no you tucking don't. You want kids? Nut inside her repeatedly until her stomach starts swelling up. That's how kids are made. Kids aren't made by marriage. You don't owe anybody any commitment ceremony. If she can't understand that you're not in favor of marriage, then you just dodged a bullet. Don't let her or family members try to shame you with "man up" and "stop being a commitmentphobe". Pump a few kids in her if u want kids, just don't get married.

Have her give a $1 check for rent every month. Make her sign an official lease. She'll legally be a tenant and can be evicted at any moment.

[–]ingenjor2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

If you're in an LTR in Sweden and buy an apartment or house for your own money and later break up, she has the rights to 50% of the apartment/house and all furniture/electronics you got for the apartment after you got together. Seemed pretty crazy when I found out. Apartments are pretty expensive in Stockholm, so a lot of money could be lost.

Depends. In canada nope. In some states like MA you need to want to get married in order to get common lawd so its avoidable there. Do your research.

[–]Burlaczech0 points1 point  (12 children) | Copy

just do it "without the paper"? She can change her surname, name the kids with your surname, write the property on both of you etc. and avoid the divorce (most of it).

[–]dgillz12 points13 points  (11 children) | Copy

Most of the things you just listed will help her considerably in court if she ever leaves.

[–]fug-it points points [recovered] | Copy

If you both put your names on houses, bank accounts and things like that, you're treating it as a general business partnership, and generally, if one party wants out, the other has to buy them out

[–]Burlaczech1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

in that case yes, but it is optional (as opposed to marriage). You either want to have the house on yourself/herself or both (which is the reason for marriage sometimes). My point was that you can get that without "the paper".

[–]LordThunderbolt1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

House goes on your name only. You can make her sign papers to rent space in the house you own. Every month She'll give you a $1 check. Legally she'll only be a tenant that can get evicted at any moment.

No, she can sue. Read up on the founder of Maglite, who never got married, yet she cleaned him out:

How does this happen, do they just automatically favor the chick? Like it's always the guy that loses everything, but what is it everything? And why is she entitled to half his money, why is it not the other way, or they just both go separate ways, this is so bullshit.

[–]Burlaczech1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

that was really interesting, first time reading about "palimony" being a thing. I do not know about the topic so therere is (as in every court case) a lot of information that I am not aware of, but from what I know after readint the article, was that they had some deal as a couple and after breaking up, they split the shared property? as a non-native english speaker, the terms are too complex for me.

[–]Fuknmods2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

Read your own article. She worked for his company and was in breach of contract. As for palimoy suits in general, the wiki article claims its used when there is an absence of legal agreements.

Allegation, not proven. She won damn near $30 million. Meaning he, and by extension men in general, are at risk even if they weren't married, which was my point all along.

If nothing but risk mitigates life then why even have sex since you risk child support from pregnancy every time. Condoms and pills can fail. Even then you risk a false rape accusation.

You ignore some risk in everything you do.

It was just an observation that when the market's inflated, seller's of houses won't sell to you just because you know their actual value. They can get a better deal elsewhere unless there's a trade-off you make somewhere. If they give something up, it's because other factors make it worth it, which is as you say being a high value man.

During my divorce I was fortunate enough to stumble upon the Colonel Quaritch meme "above your tomb" and it changed my view entirely. I handed over a check for 50k to my ex and drove away in a Camry. 5 years later I drive away with my kids in Jaguar. The 50k is gone, the marriage is dead, and her hope is gone(30 more years at a work a day job for her). I win, I lose, I move on. I explore, I create, I blaze new paths, I never stop. Whatever she gets it will only be a piece of what she could have had. Instead of being the main character in a great life she is no more than a foot note. That woman didn't create anything, she only stole things. My world is infinite and not limited to one situation, one woman, one company, one loss, one win. The sad part is that these types women can't imagine anything better than what is in front of their nose.

How the fuck is this part of our legal system? We have such complex laws for everything else. This makes me so fucking mad.

Serious though - what are the downsides to getting a prenup? Like how could a woman possibly say no to that and you still want to marry them?

[–]Klldarkness139 points140 points  (20 children) | Copy

Biggest downside?

These days, judges can simply toss them out, and still give her half your shit.

They don't even need a reason. It's completely up to the judge whether or not to enforce the prenuptial agreement.

[–]kadykinns66 points67 points  (11 children) | Copy

Is that true? How the hell can a judge make the decision to complete disregard a notarized, legally binding document?

[–]Klldarkness117 points118 points  (7 children) | Copy

Plenty of reasons, honestly.

In the UK, unless you have atleast £7m in assets, the judges are advised to ignore the prenuptial agreement.

In America, anything that implies that it wasn't fairly written, or the woman claims she signed under duress(requiring no evidence, or explanation), will get it tossed out.

Ohhh! And my favorite:

Married for more than 5 years, or have more than 1 kid? Prenuptial agreement denied!

[–]mr-no-homo90 points91 points  (5 children) | Copy

That's what I've been saying. It's not safe for men in western civilization to get married anymore.

[–]beginner_12 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

Exactly. And why would you want to anyway? if you really, really need a ceremony for this (which is kind of beta anway) just do it unofficially, eg. not legally binding. You can still exchange rings and to the whole charade but without the legal issues.

[–]ImSquanchingInHere12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy

That's actually just as bad in some states. If you're in a state with common law marriage, like Texas, then that would be evidence of an informal marriage and you would still be subject to marital property division for community property (eg. your income from the date the informal marriage is deemed to have taken place).

[–]TThom12211 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

That might be overselling the evidentiary use of an informal ceremony in Texas. It's likely unfair to say an informal secret ceremony is just as bad as a formal marriage.

While you are absolutely correct that in Texas, an informal ceremony can be used as evidence to establish the elements of a common law marriage, the other elements of a common law marriage must still be proven (e.g., holding yourselves out in the community as being married, et cetera) and meet the requisite burden of proof, which would be on the party asserting a common law marriage.

[–]choomguy26 points27 points  (0 children) | Copy

You would be a fool to unless she has a brighter financial future than you. Eg., the best marriages i see today are the ones where the woman is some type of high earner, usually medical field,but could be executive, lawyer, etc, and earns at a minimum, slightly more than the male. This frees the guy up to be passionate about manly work and hobbies, and as long as he is dominant, and understands red pill concepts, its easy to keep her attraction. It definitely helps if she is a notch pr two down the pole in smv, obviously.

So basically, yeah, get married, as long as it it clearly financially in your favor. Or live like a hermit and bank everything til you are in your thirties. You will have a nut that will allow you to pull chicks way over your head, pump and dump. By the time you start to have difficulty pulling attractive women, you will be sick of them. Its the circle of life the way it was meant to be.

Google it, you'll see lots of reasons including just 'not enough time between engagement, signing, and wedding'

[–]zephyrprime0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It's not legally binding that's why. There is no law on the books that says "prenups are valid". Also, nobody can make a contract that violates government law. For example, you can't have a valid contract to be someone's slave because that violates the law.

Marriage law is government law. Prenups basically prescribe terms that are contrary to that marriage law so the terms can be thrown out whenever a judge wants.

[–]RealMikeHawk43 points44 points  (3 children) | Copy

That isn't entirely true. An air tight prenup can't be overturned, but there are tons of loopholes a wife's attorney can exploit to get it overturned.

Divorce lawyers are not something to cheap out on. Thousands on a great lawyer will save you millions potentially.

[–]CacTye18 points19 points  (1 child) | Copy

[–]Hillarysdilddo_201617 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

Let's think about this:

Hey dude. I have this SHITTY business proposition for you. Sign this contract and you cannot enter into any agreements with any other parties (monogamy). Then if and when the business venture fails I'll take 50% of all your assets. And possibly your future assets earned AFTER the divorce. Furthermore, for any children you have during this relationship I'll get access to your gross income starting at 20% GROSS. By the way you will NOT get to take a tax break even though I took your money post-tax.

But as bad as the above deal sounds... Why don't you get this "protection contract" (prenup) which MIGHT hold up in court and it MIGHT mitigate your losses, but however will not supersede state or case law.

Doesn't the deal sound soooooo good? I mean, who wouldn't sign that contract?!

Just get a prenup bro!!! LOL Cuckolds.

[–]grewapair44 points45 points  (7 children) | Copy

The idea is as follows. The woman gives up her career (hah!) to raise kids. When the kids are teens, she might go back to work part time after a long hiatus, but she probably isn't getting career track type work any more.

A few years later, divorce. She's financially fucked. Who will hire a 35 year old with no skills?

Meanwhile, the man can keep earning, as he's continued to advance all those years, building skills and generally becoming more valuable. He'll land on his feet, while his wife is financially fucked for life.

Obviously this doesn't really work in a lot of situations. But the law has taken away the judge's discretion to make sure no one feels like someone else got a better deal.

Don't shoot the messenger, I'd never get married - I'm not that stupid. And my mom couldn't have gotten a job had she not had kids, she's too scatterbrained, but she got to divorce rape my dad anyway.

But that's the general idea.

[–]ajbrooks1923 points4 points  (5 children) | Copy

Does this still apply if the dad gives up work to take care of the children?

[–]grewapair30 points31 points  (2 children) | Copy

Believe it or not, the laws are usually applied pretty evenly when the shoe is on the other foot. Higher earning women get divorce raped just like higher earning men. Of course, women don't usually marry lower earning men, I wonder why.

or you can live by a book written centuries ago (middle east) where your life is dependent on your family ties and trust.

or without the book, filled with incest among people living in a rainforest seeing 30 women in your life and after proving yourself to be worthy, being allowed to touch one of them.

apart of that, people in civilized world need family law which they obey - for good reasons. everyone is unhappy with this law or another, but in general, we all agree and obey them - the only way to go forward.

I understand your argument. But I don't think laws should be a crutch, so to speak. It all comes down to each and every individual to do his part and not rely on laws. Laws generally paint with a wide brush. It's 4AM right now so if none of that made sense i apologize.

the purpose of laws is supposed to be that everyone does their part, like you have said. if some do not, its a specific problém that needs reform (laws are a process that is constantly being reformed to fit the current situation), not that laws in general are a bad thing.

Without any laws, the strongest would dominate and create their own laws, and for the sake of effectivity, they would have to get more liberal again (could take generations), a vicious circle. Laws are good and have a good reason to be here.

I'd be watching tv and she'd be next to me on her phone scrolling away trying to find even more ways to get me to spend money. Signing up for groupons, etsy, live shows/performances. Total compulsion like a crack head.

She'd keep talking over my show, "hey we should totally check this out..o hey we should do this" until I couldn't take it anymore and I'd snap. I'd remind her that we went from 50/50 with the bills to me just paying 100% because I got tired of the electric getting shut off because she didn't pay the bill.

Yep. If your earning goes down, you are still on the hook, under the pretense that you have control over it. If you are commission, or own your own company you are really fucked. Arguably the guy did better because he sold the company. If he still owned it when the got the divorce, the likelihood is that it would have been valued alot higher, and whatever he took out in annual income would have worked against him too.

You have to wonder how theses laws came to exist, given that the vast majority of lawmakers were male when they were shaped. But the fact that the vast majority of lawmakers were also attorneys, is a giant fucking clue. Ive got two buddys who made out financially in their divorces. And everyone cried a bout how unfair it was and what losers they were for taking anything in the divorce. The double standard is disgusting.

I've read about women who spent all of their divorce winnings so the judge increased alimony due to her not having any other money.

No idea, but I imagine it doesn't, probably not even if you get hurt / can't work

[–]rp_tsukaisute8 points9 points  (4 children) | Copy

It only cost him a few years and half his early life fortune

Nope--she took half, but Alimony + child support will use up the other half. If he uses or somehow loses that savings, he risks missing a payment & going to prison.

On the other hand, if he's incredibly lucky & hard working & starts making even more money, she'll go to court & raise the child support. In theory it works the other way around, if he finds himself unable to make money, but in practice it doesn't work out in family court (if you can even afford a lawyer at that point).

[–]mattizie9 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy

Serious question. What's to stop him from running away to some other part of the world amd never coming back?

[–]rp_tsukaisute4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

Never again seeing one's children, & having to live abroad as a fugitive for the rest of one's life.

That being said, the 'stay & work through the process' option contains the risk of finding yourself in prison should you not be able to make payments, or if you start to 'win' the divorce and your spouse decides to use all available means to 'get back' at you.

[–]mattizie1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

My point is that the stakes are so high already (prison time for not being able to make a payment), that it doesn't make sense to play by the rules any more.

As soon as you know shit's about to go down, funnel all your money out of the country, steal your kid, and flee to somewhere else.

I'm just surprised that (especially if there are no kids), men aren't paying gangs 75k to simply off their former wives.

[–]FakeGuru17 points18 points  (3 children) | Copy

Guys, here is my favourite story of this.

A few years ago, I was introduced to a friend of a female friend of mine.

She (the friend of my female friend) was very pleased with herself, because she had married a rich guy.

Or, to be precise, she had married the only grandson of a man with several hundred million pounds.

The old man had died and the grandson was the only one in line.His parents had died long before.

Now, the woman and her catch were both qualified professionals, but she was clearly out for his money.

So, I wasn't surprised when, a couple of years later, the wife started divorce proceedings.

She had played the game nicely.

Unfortunately for a her,the husband had all of his money in trust.

In fact, the wife was the higher earner. His solictors explained that they would be seeking maintenance from her.

At which point, the divorce proceedings ground to a halt

[–]farmtownte points points [recovered] | Copy

At which point he should continue given his trust in her has been completely evaporated

Big picture, all else being equal, would you rather be you, or this guy? I think that 99.99% of people in America would switch roles with this guy, even with the loss of 60% of his money, the rest makes it okay.

He'll get over it. The other girl will get what's coming to her eventually. Evil isn't sustainable, being ethical is so much easier over the long haul. I'm not a spiritual nut, but I believe that what goes around comes around, what you push out into the universe comes back to you in ways you can't imagine.

It's a blessing in disguise. Hopefully kids weren't involved. And even if they were, so what, both parents are upper middle class. They'll be just fine. First world problems, both of these people just won the lottery and get a chance at being born again. The objective is to understand that people are Machiavellian psychopaths, and do not let it bog you down and don't take it out on the next guy who doesn't deserve it, move on with your life and make a positive contribution.

Lots of bellyaching from butt hurt betas. Take care of your business or you'll lose 60% of it, that's all I got out of this story.

[–]TRP Legal ExpertColdIceZero28 points29 points  (1 child) | Copy

I hear what you're saying, but that sound like the Just-World Hypothesis. "Evil" is either the result of mental disease or a lack of empathy. Good and evil are merely an economic construct that entirely depends on your point of view.

As for this guy, it still sucks to go through this, regardless of how much money you have. While some may say "lol at least you still have stacks after the fact," some would argue that he lost more than any one else has lost in the same situation. It's all relative.

At the end of day, it fucking sucks to have gone through this. A man's ignorance and lack of preparation isn't something to laugh about. The point of this sub is to educate men, not laugh at their ignorance. We all were ignorant at some point in our lives.

Preach to improve and build the next generation of men. We shouldn't support faggots who put people down.

Putting the money from the sale of a business into a personal/joint account is just dumb.

When I sold my business, I created a corporation, sold the business to that corporation for basically my next 5 years salary, to be paid once per year, then the corporation sold the business to the buyer. I never had that money as personal property and it never came near a joint or personal account.

Not because I was particularly worried about the old lady, but "alternative minimum tax" is a sumbitch.

[–]TangoZulu5 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy

Yes but if you're a shareholder of the corporation you created then those shares are considered assets of the marriage. They would simply force you to do a valuation of the corporation and she would be entitled to half of that value. Since the corporation sold the business to the buyer, the corporation holds the cash and she is entitled to half the value of the corporation (assuming you're 100% shareholder).

I knew someone this happened to. "You don't need to keep working, you could retire. Liquidise your assets... sell your company." He did. She instantly divorced him.

If you weren't married, you'd still have control. Your attraction would go up, her desire for you would go up. The money wouldn't immediately be her money. Sure, she'd angle for a new car and suggest you live in a larger house but she'd not instantly think "wow, that's half mine, and I don't even need this guy".

Op furthur states "Its a crazy system. Assets and income are considered separate. Even though I quit after I sold the company, they calc the POTENTIAL earning of each person. My MBA wife hadn’t worked in 5 years so they calc’d her potential income to be $0, and I was making well into the six figures. From judge’s view point, it’s my choice not to go out and make all that money again. So my salary minus her $0 divide by two and that’s what I had to come up with — out of my assets. Weird."

I would go insane having gone through this. It seems like she had been planning this for some time. Surely being unemployed for that long should have raised serious red flags.

If you are expecting a divorce in six months to a year, what is the legality of developing a "cocaine addiction". Whereby you start withdrawing a lot of money and hiding it somewhere, all while staying out late. Maybe come home smelling of cigs and beer. Acting erratic. If she's going to divorce anyway drug addiction gives her an easy reason but also gives an easy excuse for you to hide cash. Once she leaves go to narc anon or a cheap outpatient rehab to give more credibility.

If it makes him feel any better, she could have done the same thing at any time. It's not like he was a particular sucker for selling. If she had left the week before, she could have claimed 1/2 of the value of the company. In fact, some companies that guys have built from nothing and take pride in running end up having to be sold to settle divorces. Opportunistic investors will lowball once they figure this out, knowing that the owner has to take some offer. So at least the woman waited until he got the best deal he could.

Not really, at the end of the day the guitar player doesn't have anything good going for him, and is stuck with a used-up divorced mom who isn't going to get a job. The guy who started the company can likely start another because of his experience, and he still has quite a bit of money left over from the sale. Sure child support and alimony suck, but child support isn't forever, and a rich man who pays child support and alimony is still worth more than a lower-middle class guy who doesn't.

o my god how unexpected wow. Never have we heard of such a story. I am sure that in the whole of Human History there NEVER was a story like this. Who could have thought that a woman could do such a thing?

Sarcasm? how did you guess?

I dont blame her. Not in the slightest. She did right. She did the best she could. KUDOS to her.

We on the other hand (yes we men) should be deeply ashamed of ourselves. Countless examples of this exists. It is right in our faces. We all know this and yet we still run into this head on. Any being that stupid deserves even more. She should have taken all.

Today there is such thing as marriage contract. If you live in a place that has none or is not accepting such a contract then dont marry. If the woman threatens with leaving you if you dont marry, let her go. If you can do neither then fucking SUCK IT UP! and dont cry afterwards.

Rant over!

What an idiot. Any real man knows you run your on paper wealth into the ground, divorce her, lawyer HAM, settle, then sell your business(es).

You sound like you lose frame easily so I'll just let you be. I wasn't asking you to eat his dinner for him, I was saying I support any and all help given to a man looking for resources. You don't have to agree. I couldn't give less of an okapi.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
