| | Re: Guys who are divorced. How bad did you get hit financially?
I made my wife sound a prenup. All I have to do is give her the papers.
But if I hadn't made my wife sign my prenup:
I own a few businesses before the marriage, and I live in a state where assets are divided and given to the owner before the marriage, but assets aqcuired during the marriage are distrubted equally.
So anyway, my wife can't take my businesses. But if she wanted to, and if there wasn't a prenup, she could og after the income for alimony. Sucks that she can't though!
Plus, she could get a fairly nice 401k folder, and if she wanted to take my savings, she could probably get at least 50%, if not more. Not that there is a lot in that savings account, but she could.
Overall, my net worth was around, before I learned about the infidelity, was around 800K. Now, it is has gone down considerably, maybe 600k, but out of it, she will only get maybe 50k at most.
And if that sounds bitter, I had a net worth of maybe 700k before the marriage, she had very little. I would say nothing
I would suggest going with Anbusis's advice. Going to Texas would be a great idea.
