Most California residents have shopped on Amazon at one time or other. However, many may not know that the founder of the company, Jeff Bezos, is preparing for high-net worth divorce proceedings. As the richest man in the world, he reportedly has many issues to resolve, especially the 16 percent of shares he owns in the company he created and in which he acts as the current CEO.
No one can predict which California marriages will last a lifetime and which will not. A recent study, however, suggests that wealthy people might be more likely to end their marriages in court than those of lesser means. High-net worth divorce is often complex, so if that's true, spouses who are considering filing divorce papers may want to act alongside experienced legal support.
Living with a spouse with whom you are no longer in love can be an exhausting and painful emotional challenge. Enduring years of an unhappy marriage can even feel unbearable. Some couples choose to divorce after a few short months of marriage; other people remain married for decades before parting.
