Ohio baby boomers can likely relate to their peers across the country who remember the 1960s and 1970s with affection. From peace signs to rock and roll, as well as the whole make-love-not-war slogan that inspired a generation, those born between 1946 and 1964 are now in their 50s to early 70s. In addition to music and other cultural flares, baby boomers have something else in common nowadays. Many of them, including Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, are filing for divorce.
Bezos was married for 25 years. This is often the case in a gray divorce, and the lengthier the marriage, the more complicated divorce proceedings might be. It is logical to assume to that the longer spouses are together the more assets they acquire.
In Bezos’ case, that amounts to approximately $137 billion. It is not clear whether or not Bezos and his wife signed a prenuptial agreement before they married in 1993. The Amazon founder has spoken highly of his soon-to-be ex, stating that they are parting on amicable terms and are very grateful for every year they spent together.
It is true that divorce proceedings are often less stressful if spouses get along as well as Jeff Bezos and his former wife appear to do. However, when high-net worth assets are at stake, there is no guarantee that disagreements will not arise in court. This is why most high-net worth spouses in Ohio and elsewhere hire experienced family law attorneys to protect their rights and financial interests as they work toward agreeable settlements.
