    Indeed. But this thread has gone awfully quiet. Ah I can think of another situation. Did you hear about the divorce of Emmanuel Petit (sp)? Apparently his ex-wife tried making a claim for part of his future wages. What are your views on that? Anyone else?

    No, I haven't... Could you please tell us more about that? Is he French?

    Surely an ex-wife (I'm assuming he is already divorced) cannot claim part of her ex-husband's earnings in the future, there are factors that no-one can foresee. Also, why should she have a right to any money he earns after their divorce? That has nothing to do with her, has it? Unless they've got children of course... I don't know that person, what does he do for a living?

    I know what you're saying. Apparently she won her case in getting future wages off him but my lecturer at college thinks she's doomed when it is heard upon appeal. I think so too.

    I don't think that a partner should get an equal 50:50 split because if one partner works really hard then I don't think there should ever be a situation where his partner should be able to take 50%. If they have children together then the partner with main custody who has to look after them should be paid a specific amount to look after themselves and their children but not 50%. Things like houses that were bought together should be split 50:50 but if one partner put more of the savings in then they should get more of the savings out.

    I don't get why this would be a victory for women I think it makes women look like money hungary people.

    I agree but you get reactions like this.

    Same happened with the Bobbit case in the USA.

    THen you have reactions like this regarding to colour - i.e OJ Simpson.

    I think its blatantly unfair if one person can walk away with a huge amount of money just because their ex partner earned a lot. And the only money that a partner should recieve from the other should be to do with the care of any children they've got.

    An anyone explain how the money allocation works when the two parents have joint custody? Does the parent who sees more of the child get more money from the other, or something like that? Theres so many variables, and I don't have a clue how they work it out.
