    My cheating ex-husband won the lottery by having an affair, says City trader at centre of landmark divorce*


    Victoria Ward
    6 January 2018 • 9:30pm A city trader at the centre of a landmark multimillion divorce case says her former husband “won the lottery” by having an affair.
    Julie Arnold, formerly Sharp, has called for divorce law to be modernised to better support couples who are facing divorce after a short marriage having had no children.

    She said such cases were likely to become more common as couples marry later in life, noting that in such circumstances, when one partner earns more than the other, the current principle that assets should be shared equally, was wholly unjust.

    “Matrimonial law relies on a 1973 act and distributes wealth based on case law involving a couple who married in 1961 and stayed together for 30 years,” she told the Telegraph.

    “Our life is different now and there will be more and more couples who divorce after shorter marriages before they have children."
    Ms Arnold successfully challenged a High Court ruling...

    Welcome to equality. Pay up bitch. And then shut up.

    I think that we will see a female version of MGTOW in response to women losing assets by divorce laws originally meant to disadvantage men.

    Young women with high SMV avoided marriage because the "benefits" of committing to one man "too early," did not outweigh the benefits of giving up on so many short term suitors.
    "Too early" = before they hit the wall.
    Older women with assets will avoid marriage because the "benefits" of coming home to a man and not a lot of cats, do not outweigh the "risks" of getting divorce raped like a man.

    Julie Arnold, don't blame the player....hate the game. Robin Sharp, the "lottery winner," played the game like a champ.

    Now that he understands the minefield that is divorce court, the only thing he has to do now to enjoy the divorce proceeds and the rest of his life, is to not get married.

    I like the first comment.

    The poor man stood by her all these years.
    5.4 million isn't enough, he is used to a better lifestyle now and needs a few more millions.

    It appears it was she who activated the divorce process that she now complains about.

    Did she explore other options to save the marriage? We'll never know.

    Or did she assume the divorce would conform itself to her customized view of equality?

    Do it. Step 1 is admitting that these three-year marriages are not really marriages at all. The relevant jurisdiction should use the dominical (spoken by Jesus) standard: no second marriages (while the spouse is still alive). Second marriages are simply not a thing. To put it another way: divorce doesn't exist, only separation.

    In the Philippines, where divorce is illegal (they do have civil "annulment"), the hiring of hit men actually happens.
