It’s a sad day for rich wives!


Published: 14th April 2007 - Category: Pre-Nuptial Agreements - Author: Lynne Bastow

A High Court judge has ruled that a divorcing wife of a millionaire cannot expect compensation beyond her needs and has awarded a clean break (final settlement) of £13 million. As reported in THE TIMES.

The message to all rich wives is clear – spend more – prove you need a new designer handbag a week, shop in the style of Victoria Beckham and hopefully he won’t even notice!

A wealthy divorcee was launched back into the circuit in Surrey a few years back and the social preening was funny to watch. A camp gay guy made a play for her, as did a happily married man (with his wife’s blessing – her comment – “What’s 5 years apart if we get £5 million at the end of it?”).

The second message to all rich ex-wives – make sure you take out a Pre-Nuptial Agreement before you marry again – don’t make the same mistake your ex-husband made!
