Divorce Barbie


Divorce Barbie
Published: 4th October 2007 - Category: Bastow Blogs - Author: Lynne Bastow

My friends keep texting me this joke:

A father was on his way home and decided to buy his daughter a Barbie. He stopped at a toy store and noticed that there was a Shopping Barbie, a Beach Barbie and a Disco Barbie which were all £19.95. There was also a Divorce Barbie for £265.00.

“Why is the Divorce Barbie so much more expensive?” asks the dad.

The salesman answered “That’s because Divorce Barbie comes with Ken’s car, Ken’s house, Ken’s boat, Ken’s computer, Ken’s furniture and one of Ken’s mates!

It is a joke but… humour based on truth. Recent, high profile, big money, divorce cases have spot lighted a legal system which appears unfair to wealthy individuals!

I have said this many, many times. If you are richer than your partner, don’t get married, or at least don’t live in this country! And you must, must, must get a pre-nup!
