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?!?!

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.

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.

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.

2 upvotesSeoul_Brother3 years ago

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.

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.

1 upvotesEasyChief3 years ago

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.

3 upvotesLordThunderbolt3 years ago

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.

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.

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.

3 upvotesFuknmods3 years ago

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. Which wouldnt be valid as i said you'd need a lawyer to handle cohabitation, children and avoiding common law.

Even then its the lowest possible risk unless you wanna go ghengis khan a bunch of women in foreign countries that you'll never visit again or willingly become a genetic dead end. I studied biology so the latter isnt an option for me.

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.

140 upvotesKlldarkness3 years ago

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.

67 upvoteskadykinns3 years ago

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

118 upvotesKlldarkness3 years ago

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:

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.

27 upvoteschoomguy3 years ago

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.

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.

44 upvotesRealMikeHawk3 years ago

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.

18 upvotesHillarysdilddo_20163 years ago

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.

45 upvotesgrewapair3 years ago

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.

True, but there are work arounds. For example, the guy could fly to Vegas, withdraw a majority of the money, and hand it off to a trusted friend. Friend then deposits the money for him in another account. When he's asked where the money went, he can claim he lost the money gambling in Vegas.

Thinking that a personal instead of joint has any meaning at all is just hopelessly naive and ignorant.

I know that personal accounts aren't protected. The value of a personal account in a relationship is that your money isn't in plain view. If this guy kept his mouth shut and put the money in a personal account, he would have more time and options in this scenario.

upvotesHorumOmnium3 years ago

I've come up with the Vegas loophole as well. And if you and I could do that, so can a judge. And he'd see right through it. And he'd ask for proof that you have a history of compulsive gambling. And even if you could get away with it at first, you'd still have that annoying ex of you trying all means possible to detect a flaw in your armor. Like you suddenly starting to buy expensive stuff with money that you supposedly lost.

As for the personal accounts: in this particular case, the guy sold his company. That's not something you can hide. It's an exciting life event that you want to share with your loved one.

The personal account wouldn't have achieved much: it'd just have prevented the wife from seeing the money, but she'd still know it existed.

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.

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.

Yes but if you're a shareholder of the corporation you created then those shares are considered assets of the marriage.

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.

At first I thought the guitarist is a dumb ass, but nowadays I think that's the way to go. Turn the tables. Be the one who benefits from a divorce.

upvotesLeonard_Church3 years ago

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.

Guess who is going to be the happier man in 10 years.

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.
