As bill burr said "is this the line to lose half my stuff?"

It's stupid for even moderately successful guys too. But lets be modern and say it's stupid for a higher earner to marry a lower earner, regardless of gender.

The unfairness of marriage and having kids were bad for women for most of time, now they're unfair for men who are usually the higher earner, although that is starting to change.

Jeff Bezos' wife did not earn that money. The richest woman on the planet got that way by doing one thing - choosing the right man then taking half his stuff.

What they are actually doing is turning the marriage off then when they turn it back on all the drivers should reinstall automatically. I suspect that 10 seconds after the divorce they will remarry.

Ok. Joking aside this is sad, their marriage was one that survived massive wealth for 27 years and was somewhat of an inspiration. Heck my wife and I still have a year and half to go before we hit 27 years and pretty everyone we know is constantly asking us for relationship advice because none of them has pulled off even close.

For those who are so sour on marriage I can understand the sentiment one of my best friends went through one of the ugliest divorcees I've ever seen and it's hard. However, not to sound trite but if you don't risk pain you won't know love.

That's my point. What's legally right is intellectually, ethically, and morally wrong. Guys know it, so they don't get married.

What do you think she did to EARN 25 billion dollars? Her HUSBAND created the biggest consumer goods company on the planet to earn his 25 billion. What did she do for hers?

The more unfair marriage is for men, the fewer men will choose to get married, then people can attack them for that too.

And how many women are in the line where they had to put their entire career on hold to have a family? If you get to run off and have a career making a load of money while your wife takes care of the kids and the household she has earned half of whatever you have. In my family the roles were reversed. I was able to make more than my husband but we wanted our kids raised by a parent until the youngest was 10. My hubs wasnt particularly happy being home, but he developed a respect for what moms go through, and I never felt like he didnt earn his half of what we have. If you dont love someone enough to share your money and material objects with them, then dont get married. Be clear about how selfish you are from the start.

The game seriously changes the closer you get to
retirement, or the more you accumulate.
For those who have neither one of these problems,
I would say you lack the perspective that you may
likely have later. Sure, marry for love. I get it,
and I tried it. Caught the love of my life banging
a stranger. Perspectives change. Now, better off
financially than I've ever been, within 8 years of
retirement, and thinking about what I am leaving to my
son, when I move along (die).

So believe in your fairytale life if it helps you sleep
better. Believe in your fictional God too. Or that
you will live forever in some afterlife. Heck, believe
it all...

But for me... All my fantasies and delusions have fallen.
Does it make me (what was it called above?) Cynical?
Perhaps... But I prefer the term Realist... So, you
do you, and possibly lose half your ----. Me, I've already
done it, and come out shining (eventually) on the other side.

Tough lessons learned. Perspectives changed.

Loving someone doesn't mean being naive about what the future might hold.

Yes if you've done half the work in a household then you deserve half of what was earned while you were together, within reason.

But is it WITHIN REASON that the richest woman in the world took $25 billion from her husband? Did she do $25 billion dollars worth of cooking, cleaning, and raising the bezos kids?

Did Tiger woods' wife do $500 million worth of cooking, cleaning, and raising the kids?

Perspective on Bezos and Scott. She and Bezos left their hedge fund jobs and started Amazon together and she was one of Amazon's first employees. She was heavily involved in Amazon's early days before she moved to raise their family and concentrating on her writing. She accepted 38 billion in a 150 billion divorce, most went to charity and she is now worth 6.1 billion... He was sleeping around and got caught. I'd say she deserved half but didn't ask for it.

Other than for the purposes of raising children, or (in international marriages) perhaps obtaining necessary Visas so that the people can actually spend their lives together, I also do not see much reason for people to get married.

Also, tying financial issues to the ability of either or both adults ability to not philander over the course of a many-decades long marriage seems medieval. Philandering is contemptible but it should not be the basis of stripping a person of half the assets.

Don't be obtuse. What I am saying is that Amazon is a company they started TOGETHER made THEM very wealthy. It's not like she married him after he started it. He got busted sleeping around. Do you not think HALF is equitable? They came into it together and she was an important early piece.

As for a financial penalty, I think it certainly depends on the circumstances. Someone guilty of breaking the terms of a marriage certainly bears weight for the separation. Bring it down to earth, should a wealthy doctor be able to screw his wife of 20+ years who helped him build his practice, raised his children, getting divorced because he was unfaithful and leave her with nothing because he earned all the money and she left her career on hold to raise their children for 20 years and throw his soirees and such? Now do that for a man with more money than God...

If you are simply unhappy or just want to wet your dipstick somewhere else, perhaps a divorce is in order first. I am a bit old fashioned in that regard. Certainly a penalty should be on the table - putting in legal speak he broke the contract. And surprise, the courts usually see it that way. That is why wealthy people put prenups in place and they cover things like infidelity. I certainly don't think she should have to accept less than half in this case but they had an at least publicly amicable divorce where she didn't seek even half.

As I said, if she was WORKING then she deserves half. If she had servants raising their kids and cleaning their house, like tiger woods' wife, then what the hell did she do to deserve $250 million?

And infidelity shouldn't figure into it. If you end your marriage the financial result should be the same, regardless of what exactly caused the breakup.

It shouldnt be a case of "well they divorced so she deserves half, PLUS he CHEATED so he needs to lose even more as punishment!"

My question is how are they going to divide up all the farmland that have procured:

The couple holds an extensive farmland portfolio stretching over 18 states, according to The Land Report. The Gates family's biggest holdings are in Louisiana (69,071 acres), Arkansas (47,927 acres), and Nebraska (20,588 acres).

Furthermore, what is their agenda behind acquiring over so much farming acreage?

JPW nobody cares about your high and mighty opinions on males you do not know and have never met. And yes, most reasonable men think it's outrageous that a man can lose half his wealth in life, or visitation rights to his children, simply because he doesn't wear the teats in the family.

Why is it only the man's? Because it's viewed as joint assets by a court, which is why it's split.

Yeah because the court is going off the ridiculous fallacy that a partner who changed the world and earned a billion dollars couldn't have done so without the other partner changing the diapers and bedsheets and so in a divorce, that person earned HALF A BILLION DOLLARS changing diapers and bedsheets.

Saying "the court says so" doesn't win this debate, when the debate is whether or not court policies are actually ethically morally and intellectually fair.

Eberly pried into my personal life then decided he was so jealous that I couldn't be telling the truth.

Losers can't believe that anyone's life is better than theirs.

You on the other hand just started with personal insults because you ran out of logic to defend your losing argument that tiger woods wife earned a quarter billion dollars from him.

No, just recognizing internet bragging for what it is. just that.

The difference is.....nobody believes you and everyone believe me....regardless of any other opinions they might have of either of us.

Your life might be wonderful.....but nobody believes you.

"don't demand someone tell you about their personal life if you don't want to hear the answers."

It's much more fun to fill in the blanks myself.

And then it's your problem, not mine.

BTW, I unplonked you out of curiosity and read back through your posts.

You are one obsessed skinny little runt.

You just beg me to turn around and kick sand in your face with the "your cult" and "your fault" middle school ----.

"As I said, if she was WORKING then she deserves half."

really? What if she worked for $15/hr.

Half?

Compare that to if she were an Orthodontist and chose to raise kids instead. Half? more? less?

You see how twisted you can get over your retarded claims?

No... "WORKING" by itself doesn't justify anything.

She's entitled to half as far as I'm concerned regardless. Now, if prior to the marriage, there was a pre-nup then that would apply (which wouldn't have been out of realm of possibility considering how wealth Bill was before he was married)

But all of this tell us something, speak.....you've been hurt by a woman financially. Perhaps physically as well...who knows. But it appears you've had some experience in this and it didn't go well.

do tell........

"you're jealous of"

You continue to use the term "jealous" when nobody has given you any reason to.

Wonder why?

Then you try to sell us on your "gorgeous girlfriend".

You just couldn't help but include that adjective.

Keep talking speak......you're saying way more than you think. Sooner or later you'll burst with some juicy tidbits of your life I'm really really really really jealous of.

I don't know. You're obsessed with the fact that I've got a gorgeous girlfriend. Sounds like you've never had one. Maybe that's because you're a moron. Didn't do anything good with your life. Or maybe it's because you're ugly and unappealing to women.

I'm not claiming to know you, just hypothesizing likely reasons for your obsession...

Do you have a little pad of paper by your computer where you write down every little clue you get about my life?

I'm sure it's all superior to me...

I already answered a bunch of your questions and your response was to call me a liar. Womp womp. So that's all you get. You'll just have to fantasize about the rest of it and connecting dots on your bulletin board.

If you read his drivel then you'll see he's dying to tell us more about his greatness. He's clearly convinced himself he's superior to virtually everyone here.

Oh, speaks...I CAN'T get you out of my mind.

You're all I think about.....and your successes

And I want you to think about me.....and my failures.

But I'm willing to have a success match up as I've been saying.

Why aren't you? I'm sure in addition to all of the successes I'm jealous of...there's more I don't even know about that you'd enjoy rubbing in my face.

Stalk you?

If you can't figure it out.....I plan to stalk you every minute we're both here.

You've inspired me. Instead of avoiding you, I've decided to EMBRACE you. Kind of like that guy in "Sleeping with the Enemy". You know...where he tells Julia Roberts "I can't live without you....and I won't let you live without me".

That's going to be us, speaks (metaphorically speaking of course).

But if you refuse to accept my challenge......HERE IS THE REASON WHY.....

It won't matter how you respond to those questions. It wont' matter how impressive or even non-impressive you are with your responses.

You're refusing my challenge and it has nothing to do with being concerned about losing some contest of who's most impressive. You're not worried about that at all.

but you're refusing anyway.....and I know why. You know why as well.

I'll play Ebs.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harvard.

Did my PhD at MIT.

Married a super gorgeous super model that will go unnamed.

I make $1.5-2 million a year.

Work 20 hours a week.

Spend the rest of my time in my house in the mountains near Seattle or my penthouse in Manhattan.

Driving fast cars and fast woman.

With my 99th percentile genetics.

8.5" ----.

20/10 vision.

Washboard abs.

Guns so big I have to have custom made shirts to fit around them.

An ass so fine it's used as a model for restoration of classical statues.

I don't go out in public during the day because I get stopped for pictures and compliments so often it becomes annoying. Men trying to sell me their daughters are particularly persistent.

Brad Pitt hates me because one time I walked by him and the crowd of adoring fans and swooning women starting following me.

I can feel you seething jealousy as you read this and know you can never attain 1/10 of what I have. And I'm only in my mid 30s!

Last time you begged my for personal info I gave you some. It wasn't what you wanted to hear, so you then said I was lying, yet still you MEMORIZED my answers for some reason and have been obsessed with them ever since.

So tell me - why would I give any personal info to someone who doesn't believe it, memorizes it, then chases me around repeating it like an obsessed stalker?

Because I'm willing to do the same. I'm taking the same risk. Actually, I'm taking the bigger risk because you're better than me, right? And as I already said, I won't challenge anything you respond with.

Admit it, ---- stick, your worry isn't that I won't believe you, it's that nobody will believe you.

And you live in California? How Superior of you!!
