And maybe Ric DOES have a good lawyer and so his alimony is really low and/or prenups all the way.
I doubt he'd go through one divorce, lose half his stuff and NOT get a pre-nup the next 2,3 or 4 times around.
Might wanna do some research on it. Ric Flair is one of the major cautionary tales used to prove how broken the community property statutes are in this country. His third marriage barely lasted a full two years. Why's he paying the wench alimony?
Having to pay alimony at all
is a sign of moronic representation. Your attorney's job is to advise you in these situations. Your financial advisor tends to have information on protecting your assets in any situation that might threaten them (marriage is one). Whenever two people from disparate financial situations choose to wed, the more stable side's advisors are supposed to do their freakin' jobs
. A smart prenup does not include an alimony clause because short-term alimony clauses can be disputed and stricken far too easily in many jurisdictions.
Regardless, in this day and age, a man being stuck with alimony (of ANY
amount) for multiple wives, is stupid in my view. And if his alimony wasn't that much, why couldn't he have retired years ago? The alimony and the back taxes broke his back financially....so you solve that by adding another possible liability to your balance sheet?
Yeah, that sounds like a stroke of genius. Just like being in dire financial straits, having to continue to work, and opening a financial advisory firm (which he did also and as you might expect, the business didn't last a year). Flair isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed.
