Moral to the story is don't get divorced or have an iron-clad pre-nup!  I love the line....."she thinks she was fairly treated by the court".....Ya think?!


CHICAGO (AP) - An energy magnate's estranged wife was awarded $184 million Monday in what appears to be one of the biggest divorce verdicts in U.S. history.
Citing irreconcilible differences, Maya Polsky, a 55-year-old homemaker and art gallery owner, filed for divorce from her husband, Michael Polsky, in 2003.

Judge William Boyd had ruled in October that Maya Polsky was entitled to half of the Chicago couple's cash and assets, with her share valued at $176 million. On Monday, the judge amended his decision to include previously omitted assets that increased the value of her award to $184 million.

Maya Polsky's attorney, Howard Rosenfeld, said more than  ;D ;D ;D$170 million of the award is nontaxable cash ;D ;D ;D. He said that in researching the case he could find nothing in which a homemaker wife received such a significant award.

"She's very much satisfied with the court's decision. She thinks she was fairly treated by the court," Rosenfeld said.

 The assets have all been amassed from post-tax earning so it obvious there would be no tax payable because the money was already hers.

A marriage is an equal partnership, so it is only fair the assets get split 50:50m when you divorce.    Obviously if people get married later on in life then assets previously earned should be treated differently.

Actually.....not sure....I didn't post the whole article. It said he sold Skygen in 2000 for $450 million. Many sales like this are a huge portion of stock from the purchasing company.  The article says she'll receive $170 million cash.  He's paying some major taxes on capital gains to give her $170 million cash.

I'm not arguing against her, it's just amazing how complicated it can be when you're talking that much "jack"!  ;)

what needs to be changed is that she filed for divorce and got half. i think whichever one files for the divorce should get a lower amount than the other. say 25 - 35 %.

you want out? fine, but you dont get as much money.

So she walks in on him banging a 17-year-old, a fight breaks out, he beats her and puts her in hospital.............does she only get 25% if she files now.   ???
