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.
Western men have only themselves to blame. People from around the world can only look and laugh or feel sorry for them. It's so pathetic

These "models" are essentially escorts for billionaires. It is a game for both parties, this isn't a stockbroker trying to ditch his housewife and take off with the secretary type deal. The Sultan of Brunei and his brother were famous in years past for paying famous women to come over for a month. They are housed in palaces and used like escorts then paid 100-200-500K for the month (if they were famous). They do it for the money and very little shame since everything is secretive.

The decimal points of the dollar amounts are different from what the ordinary working class/peon/peasant class can relate to, but the issue is still the same.

late 30s former model lady marries saudi billionaire, 13 yr marriage produces one kid. Fantasy lavish lifestyle in multiple countries. Now 61 yrs old, saudi $B ditches now 50-something wife for younger 25 yr old model. Old/first wife is entitled to something for her time and trouble and continuing lifestyle overhead.

She was offered $49M, asked for $262M, was given $75M as compromise/settlement/negiotation. He leased the punanai for a few years, then begrugingly sent her on her way with big fat paycheck.

Somehow I doubt she'll live a hard life, and I find it hard to sympathize with any party involved.

Ay yi yi. I came over here to distract myself because I am dealing with a chronic illness and some frustrations with some financial issues...but strangely enough, I am glad not to be either one of these people.
