How Do You Deal With A Divorce Involving $137 billion In Assets?
Mr. & Mrs. Bezos are working out an amicable resolution of their divorce out of court. Individuals with exceptionally high net worth are in a position to hire lawyers and fight in court until the cows come home. However, the smartest route is always to try to keep ones dirty laundry outside of public discussion. A discreet negotiated settlement between Mr. & Mrs. Bezos is obviously the best way to deal with their marital difficulties. Mr. & Mrs. Bezos have taken a very low profile with such a potentially high profile matrimonial matter. This will help protect their children from the press coverage and allow them to work out what is hopefully a reasonable amicable breakup of their marriage.
