It is cheaper to keep her is more than applicable to Jeff Bezos. The founder, chairman, CEO and president of Amazon decided to get a divorce from his wife MacKenzie of 25 years. Jeff Bezo is currently the richest man in the world, with an estimated total of 137 billion dollars. The couple resides in the state of Washington which is a community property state. That means his spouse is entitled to half of all the wealth accumulated within marriage. Jeff started Amazon a year after they got married, and that means she may get up to $66 billion dollars from the divorce. The bottom line it could be the most costliest divorce of all time. The couple released a statement and said “If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.” Well I’m sure one half of the couple feels that way.
