Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world if you exclude all those shadowy people who hold their wealth in trusts which they do not legally own, such as the Queen of England and the trillions she has stashed away this way. Bezos made his money with Amazon, which briefly was the most valuable company on earth. His net-worth is believed to be around 150 billion dollars. That’s a lot of dough. You thought that having a million bucks was a lot. Bezos has 150 000 million bucks. He earned it. I assume he deserves it.
Yet, divorce laws in the West being what they are, his soon-to-be ex-wife will probably get a good chunk of it. One may hope that Bezos will get off as easily as Elon Musk who got rid his wife for a few measly million. Jeff Bezos does not have a prenup, though, so it may be painful. Let’s assume his wife gets half. Man, I can’t wait to read the feminist drivel claiming that she earned every penny of it because she supported her man and raised the kids while he revolutionized the retail industry.
Bezos and his wife were married for 25 years. They have three kids, and, presumably because his wife is a bleeding-heart liberal, they adopted a Chinese girl. Who knows, maybe she used to hang out with Angelina Jolie and her United Colors of Benetton-gaggle of kids? So, 25 years and 75 billion bucks later, her share amounts to three billion per year or a cool 8.2 million per day. Sure, she must deserve all that.
How often does the average married couple have sex? From what I hear, a few times a year, on special occasions, is a good approximation. However, we’ll give his wife the benefit of the doubt and assume she’s been a real trooper and served her master once a week, without any hint of
I’m not making fun of Bezos in any way. Instead, the point is that his soon-to-be ex-wife will be rewarded very handsomely for having picked a winner. Nobody will see anything wrong with it, and if you do, the usual suspects will attempt to shame you. “You must not have enough money to get a wife,” they may state. Or they ask, “Who hurt you?”, “Why are you so bitter?”, and other insincere rhetorical questions. Yet, at this point the absurdity of the entire situation will become all-too-obvious. Did Jeff Bezos not have enough money to get a wife? Was he not “alpha” enough? Should he have manned up?
The only chance to win this game is by not playing. The second-best option is marrying in Sweden with a prenup and being prepared to go nuclear. A guy like Bezos, however, won’t be able to “ghost”. He will bleed.
