“I Don’t Care Too much for Money, for Money Can’t Buy Me Love.” – The Beatles
As divorce lawyers, we sometimes hear things like, “if we could only win the lottery, my spouse and I would never fight again.” In fact, one of the number one things married couples fight about is money. With the recession hitting so many of us these last few years, there has been that much extra strain on marital relationships.
The recent news, however, of two big celebrity divorces challenges the notion that money can solve all your marital problems. It’s reported that Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore will be splitting more than $200 million when they dissolve their six year marriage. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries each made millions last year, yet their marriage lasted only a few months. So, perhaps the Beatles were right.
