Do you think winning a $1 Billion divorce settlement is too little money for anyone?


Sue Ann Ham, The ex-wife of an oil magnate will appeal the divorce award of over $1 billion in cash and assets that she was handed this week. Bear in mind she's an attorney and not just a wife. She said her ex-husband, Continental Resources CEO Harold Hamm (worth an estimated $12.6 billion), was ordered to pay her was “not equitable”. According to Reuters. She was also allowed to keep additional assets, homes in CA and OK worth tens of millions of dollars! Do you think her being upset is about the money? or the fact what he was ordered to pay her doesn't "hurt him enough" in her eyes?

    It just goes to show you that there is no such thing as "enough" money to fix a broken heart for some people. Although with a fresh $1 Billion dollars in my pocket I think I could find a way to smile through my tears. LOL!

    He started the company in 1967 and was married to her for 26 years. He had been in business for 21 years before they got married! She's a skilled attorney and there is no reason why she shouldn't be content with being a billionaire.

    I agree. Even if she were given $6 Billion the end results are the same. The marriage is over.

    I also think there is a great deal of pain and heartache that is driving her as well. It's been said the appeal process could take years. Maybe it's her way staying connected or relevant in his life. Most people would take that money and run! :)

    You said: "Having been through a very (bitter divorce) in what is supposed to be a no-fault, 50-50 split state." underscores that "getting married" is a lot easier than getting divorced! And yet those who split are accused of taking the easy out.
