Today we will deviate from our normal protocol of posting practical divorce and family law information and instead report on a news story related to a recent divorce in Chicago.
The rather crass title of this post is the actual bumper sticker of a local divorce lawyer. But, in this story, the husband’s divorce wasn’t twenty grand – it was $184 million! It is reportedly the highest divorce award in history.
It reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon I once saw. In it a lawyer sits across from his female divorce client and tells her, “Some people say you can’t put a price on a wife’s 27 years of loyalty and devotion. They are wrong.” In this case, it was a high price indeed.
