The amount she's asking is not going to even leave a dent in his fortune. The fact that she may or may not have warped values has nothing to do with it. If he failed to get a prenup, that's not her problem.

Pay her the value of her "lost earnings" as a model for those years and then kick her to the curb. She can keep her clothes and anything else that was purchased for her during the marriage.

Why does someone have to be bitter because of an unfair law. Seems those in favor of this nonsense are bitter at men moving on from lazy gold digging women.

Be more picky who you marry if you are ending up with lazy gold diggers. Many families do function by having a parent not work and run the household and one working or making the money. It isn't right to have a woman or man give up years of their lives to focus on the family only to "kick them to the curb when the money earner wants a younger play thing. Its called a family.

Yet some guys keep at it. Dump wife one for a younger model, then marry an even younger model while still married to wife 2. Perhaps guys shouldn't marry women young enough to be their daughters knowing the only reason shes willing is because of his money, knowing when she finally leaves he is obligated to take care of his property in the fashion HE created.

I have no sympathy for either of them, they both knew what they were doing.

She can "live" with me for much less.
She doesn't need 262 million to live.
She wants that much or as much as she can get to live.
Need vs want.

I don't understand how in the west men have allowed their women to sue them into giving up their house, savings, which they often owned prior to the marriage. Once the marriage has ended, no spouse should be able to be entitled to their ex's property.
Because in the west women contribute. Women make up almost half of the workforce and contribute more than half of the childcare and domestic responsibilities, therefore it is not the mans house, savings, etc. Marriage in the west is a partnership not an ownership so marital assets belong to both partners. Its not a secret.

You're really defensive when it comes to this topic. Something tells me you got screwed more ways than one during your marriage.

While reading the article, I found nothing that mentioned any kind of alimony or regular, ongoing financial support. Or anything about who initiated the divorce. Both would make a difference in many things.

Past that, does anyone really understand the needs and drives of the super-wealthy? I sure don't, and I have known a couple of billionaires. Neither was an Arabian prince, though, and neither married a trophy wife.
