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 $12.6 billion), was ordered to pay her was “not equitable”.
According to Reuters. She was also allowed to keep additional assets, homes in CA and OK worth tens of millions of dollars!
Do you think her being upset is about the money? or the fact what he was ordered to pay her doesn't "hurt him enough" in her eyes?
Sounds like this greedy @#$% needs to shut up, take the money, and run.
No, if you two built a13 billion dollar empire together you each should get half.
If you married a billionaire in order to divorce her for money then yes a billion is way too much.
Yeah it's greed as Fat Freddys Cat says. For me I wouldn't even know what to do with a Billion dollars
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!
Having been through a very bitter divorce in what is supposed to be a no-fault, 50-50 split state, I can say that there are no winners in a divorce. Especially if there are children involved. Unless there is violence involved as the reason for the split to many people forget their vows of Richer or Poorer, Sickness and Health, Better or Worse, Forsaking All Others------ UNTIL DEATH DO US PART!!!!!! They just run for the divorce lawyer at the first little problem. The divorce lawyer is the only winner.
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.
yes--that is part of what I said. The other part is that to many people forget what they vowed to the other when they got married. The last part of it being :Until Death". Instead of remembering why they fell in love in the first place they split.
Realistically "until death" usually means "unless one (changes) from the person I fell in love." or "Unless one of us commits a (deal breaker) in the eyes of the other." There's no such thing as "unconditional love" when it comes to marriage.
I am really sorry to say that to me you have a very pesimistic.(sp). I was taught to say what I mean and mean what I say. A marriage is HARD WORK,day in day out, and it takes a working commitment to succeed.
You say "A marriage is HARD WORK, day in day out" and I'm pessimistic? Finding and choosing the "right mate" is the real (hard work)! If you find someone who shares your same values/ wants the same things for the marriage it's a "labor of love"
LOL, the animal magnetism that draws one person to the other is the easy part. It is the day in day out "LABOR OF LOVE" of compromise with the other so they feel valued, loved and accepted bu you that isn't the easy part. Two people need not be like
billys1, You're right when you say, "Two people need not be like" to have a lasting marriage. However it has also been said: "Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys." LOL! Generally speaking people who naturally agree do well.
It doesn't the money, that matters. But, what about the breaking up of the relationship. After losing a relationship, It may not be important, whether its a dollar or billion dollars. Everything, will be the same.
I agree. Even if she were given $6 Billion the end results are the same. The marriage is over.
That's the main concept. But, Now a days, Breaking up relationship has become an act to many members. It was just due to their inability, to know the importance, behind that relationship.

I know that getting married young was probably the first sign that marriage was maybe a bad idea, but a marriage isn't going to work when only one person is putting forth an effort to make it work. I was 22 when I got married; I thought that I was happy until my husband quit his job. I understand...

Marriages hit rough spots, sometimes long ones too. Put two separate individuals in an intimate relationship and arguments/fights are normal, eventually, even if the love is still strong. The frequency of arguments may increase gradually, or the length of arguments will increase. A person...

Why is the divorce rate so high in America? It usually seas saws every years but always remains at 50% or more. Is divorce the new fad, like having an adopted a foreign child or a owning a tiny dog? I didn't get the memo.
