Is it normal that adele has to pay half of her wealth 2 her husband in their divorce

I hate that Adele has to pay her husband a fortune in their divorce. The guy was making nothing during their marriage, just took care of their kid. The good for nothing layabout is going to be really rich. Disgraceful. It cannot be normal that this is happening.

Is It Normal?

  • Money isn't everything. Is ALL the guy did "just take care of their kid"?

    Not saying he deserves fully 50% of what she earned, but it's not like he did nothing.

    It is normal that divorces split 50% down the middle without a prenup. Just because there is a lot of money involved doesn't mean that changes.

    I personally advocate prenups, because who the hell wants to divorce somebody and deal with mountains of court paperwork on top of that? Just figure it out earlier on.

    • 'People'(the one who could do well in a divorce) don't like prenups because many of them are entering the marriage knowing there will be a divorce and want free money if things dont work out and if they do workout many of these people (the ones who wont accept a prenup) will get a free ride if the divorce doesn't happen . Mostly they are marrying above their station.

      • People who do prenups have a lower divorce rate; and also have cleaner divorces when they do, as a number of issues are resolved at the prenup stage should there be a break-up.... Assuming that the prenup was done right (is valid) and that both parties lived by it while married.

        I did a prenup before marriage. We both had separate lawyers (hers cost more than mine did); and while we defined some things in advance, we left other things to be decided if we got divorced.

    • 70 million would pay for alot of childcare etc.
      I suppose he will still have child support to pay so it will help him with that.

      • That's not the way the system is meant to work.

        It's "meant" to reflect the contribution each side puts to the marriage...ie if one partner earns most/all the money while the other partner contributes to the family by doing things that support the "breadwinner" in doing that (so more the traditional "domestic" roles...childcare, housework, etc etc) because they have (presumbly) had an agreement to split responsibility this way in their marriage at an earnings detriment, maybe even a professional detriment depending on the person, to the "domestic" partner. It seems out of proportion at a large scale but everything celebrity is out of proportion.

        Marriage is meant to be two people working as one. Hence, less of divide between "yours/mine" during the period of marriage.

        I'm not saying it's a perfect system - it's definitely not. I'm not even convinced it's a good system anymore, now that often both people in a marriage work. But I'm not a legal person and I'm sure there's a lot I haven't thought of.

        Divorce settlements - there's no blanket answer. I'll always be pro child support (and too many people seem fucking clueless about what that actually entails...) but alimony... ehhh...

  • There is a pure double standard regarding this issue. Rob Vand Dam was a popular wrestler, his wife Sonya had cancer and he treated her for 12 years sacrifising his body everywhere he went just to pay for her treatment, after she is cured she divorces him and claims all his money in divorce settlement.. When men have to pay no one complains, but because this case is about a woman, ohhh look a woman is having to pay, women only deserves equal opportunity but not equal hardship. i am sorry to say equal opportunity must come hand in hand in hand with equal hardship, if men have to pay to women who contribute nothing to society just based on they are their ex wives, women have to do the same, for equal opportunity must come with equal hardship, deal with it...

  • It's terrible isn't it. Unfortunately dude this happens to loads of people all the time. "I've grown accustomed to a certain lifestyle". Fuck off, you just turned yurself into a retroactive prostitue, you greedy whore.

    • You are correct. But this time the 'victor' being a man there is uproar. Soooo predictable:(
      No one complained about the Bill Gates wife getting half, Tiger Woods......the list is endless.
      In the future prenups will become more common and acceptable simply because there will be more women in the finacially dominant position in the relationship and no one will dare to say 'prenups are' distasteful. Atleast not if the marriage is between a cis man and a cis women. The cis man will need to keep his useless mouth shut again ;)

      • I complained. I think it's wrong when it happens to men and women. It's just normally this happens to men enit.

  • It's funny, men tend to complain about how divorces are unfair for the man because he has to give half his revenue for his ex wife, but when the roles are reversed people seem to be more split. I think it's the same man or a woman. It's Adele's money, just because she fucked this dude doesn't mean she owes him shit.

    • Divorce settlement laws have unquestionably favored women more so far, and statistics proves that, cases of women having to pay is extremely rare, but I rarely ever see anyone complain when its a man, but here it is evident that people who normally stay silent over the matter are just speaking up because its its case of the woman having to pay. Regardless, men or women your hard earned money should only belong to you and divorce settlement thing is pathetic to begin with, and its fact so far men had higher income mostly and many women were marrying them to divorce them and take all their money, now roles are being reversed that women are having higher pay, and now men have started to be benefited by divorce settlement issues. And all those hypocrites who stayed silent when men were having to pay are now speaking up because women are having to pay, the word karma applies..

    • I agree that the double standard is ridiculous. I actually sit on the opposite side to you - I think when you get married you become a team, helping and
      supporting each other to achieve more, and as such share finances, and the only fair thing to do at the end of the marriage is an even split of all of the wealth and assets. But it's exactly the same if you're male or female - everything gets split. No favouring the woman financially - the law should be fair.

    • Would you say that if the roles were reversed?(Adele the male and....)
      You may think it but saying it would be totally unacceptable and you would be torn apart.

  • Taking care of the children is more important than making music.

  • It must be nice to have such an incredibly wonderful life that you have so much time and energy to spare that you can waste it on worrying about a celebrity you don't know and almost certainly will never even meet in person.

    I have no interest in Adele's personal life - and only minimal interest in her music. But a couple of minutes on Google led me to credible sources which indicate that the social media outrage about this is (surprise, surprise) misplaced since it seems they've negotiated a settlement which means the guy will not be getting half of her fortune.

    In any case, I'm sure you don't personally know this ex-couple (although you may be deluded enough to believe you do), and only a fool believes that they have any understanding whatsoever about what goes on between two people in private and the true dynamics of the relationship.

  • I’m normally in favour of the spouse of who looked after the child(ren) being granted a healthy sum as they sacrificed years of earning potential but in this case half is outrageous.

    This is why I am in favour of prenups, even though many people consider them distasteful.

    • They pretend to find it 'distasteful' they just want a better monitory life through marriage and if it goes wrong they still do well out of the whole thing. It is rarely brought up when the couple who are going to be married are on a similar level. And the one who would do better out off a divorce never brings it up.

      • I heard it described by a former colleague as “like buying insurance for a car”. I mentally added “a car you have a 50% chance of crashing”.

        • Only when you ignore the lights and dont do maintenance. Do those both and it decreases the chances of sudden crashes.

  • This is always upsetting.. How much and to what degree does a creator of wealth deserve to give to a partner in a divorce? It is always so tough to understand, especially when the inferior partner isn't incompetent.

    • Very true but no-one complains or atleast there is no big fuss made about it when the woman is 'winning'. Thats because it's so very common and expected. This is a sad state of affairs. So so many women , all over the world, go into marriage with this in their mind. They are in a win win situation more often than not. Now one man , who may have been a gold digger, 'wins' a lot of money and it a big thing. Boo hoo the bad man is taking the poor little ladys money..... For once we see equality and people are upset because equality is not what certain people want(i can't even say who I'm talking about or I'll be harassed) they want it all .
