fusillade762: She noted he once clandestinely invited mental health professionals to a party so that they could observe his wife, whom he believes suffers from bipolar disorder.This in turn forced Christine McCain to seek the services of a psychiatrist, who found no evidence to warrant a diagnosis, the judge wrote, adding the experience "must have been very hurtful."Yo dawg, we heard you like psychiatrists so we brought a psychiatrist to the party so you'll get a psychiatrist.
Pribar: Hell if I could afford to pay 175k a month I would be a happy man/did the math, if I sold my house, shop, tools and emptied my bank accounts I could support her for almost 8 months.//assuming I could get market value for everything.
ArkAngel: Pribar: Hell if I could afford to pay 175k a month I would be a happy man/did the math, if I sold my house, shop, tools and emptied my bank accounts I could support her for almost 8 months.//assuming I could get market value for everything.I don't believe you. What's your bank account number?
Gig103: Wow, big surprise that a female judge would set aside contract law
NewportBarGuy: I've never understood the court's decision to side with the "style that you've grown accustomed" argument.
ajgeek: Out of curiosity. If one party goes belly up, are they still obligated to pay full alimony, despite having a drastic lifestyle change themselves? Because right now it sounds like alimony is a winning lottery ticket for farking the right piece of meat and nothing else.
NewportBarGuy: So? She/He spent that way according to the knowledge of the joint bank account. Once that ends, they should get an equitable split (Which, in this case sounds like she was given $7,000,000 and a few houses.) and then each is responsible for doing their own budget based upon their own assets.
SecretAgentWoman: I married the wrong damn men.I can't even get child support out of the losers, let alone alimony./not bitter//ok, I'm bitter
doglover: You want to get divorced, you should get a reasonable amount of assets based on your contribution to joint possessions and your own property. That's it.
7th Son of a 7th Son: Would've been cheaper just to kill her.
basemetal: The price of freedom can be enormous.
SpaceyCat: Gig103: Wow, big surprise that a female judge would set aside contract lawSigning a contract under duress (the elder McCain threatened to disown his children if their spouses did not sign away their rights to spousal support and some business assets in exchange for a cash payout and some properties including the matrimonial home.) makes the contract invalid.
Krieghund: In all those examples the successful spouse owes a part of their continued success on the other partner's contribution. So, in the divorce the less successful partner is entitled to a part of the rewards of what they worked together towards.
poison_amy: The fact that she asked for child support for children of ages 19-26 makes my level of sympathy for her absolute zero.
Krieghund: /I know, I'm not going to make bitter divorcees less bitter.
AxemRed: Lesson: If you're rich, don't get married.
FishyFred: ajgeek: Out of curiosity. If one party goes belly up, are they still obligated to pay full alimony, despite having a drastic lifestyle change themselves? Because right now it sounds like alimony is a winning lottery ticket for farking the right piece of meat and nothing else.You have to go to the court and petition to have it changed. Chances are it will be granted. But a lot of people don't know that, so the poor schlub who loses his $15/hr job is stuck trying to keep up on child support payments of less than $1,000 per month and can't make it.
ongbok: And lets not forget that the agreement gave her 7 million and a house in the event of a divorce. It wasn't like she was being handed a change of clothes and a bus ticket.
What_Would_Jimi_Do: any one wonder why us smart ones stay single.
Occam's Disposable Razor: She gets a monthly payout that is greater than about 90-95% of American households' YEARLY income for simply not farking some guy anymore?Seems legit.
