Appeals Judge tells ex-wife of millionaire to get a job
It seems that common sense hasn't been completely abandoned in the British judicial system.

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/ge...64662.html

Quote:A judge has told the ex-wife of a millionaire racehorse surgeon to get a job as she has no right to be “supported for life” by her former husband.
Lord Justice Pitchford told mother of two Tracey Wright, 51, that divorcees with children aged over seven should work for a living.

Leading divorce lawyers believe the ruling will have a significant impact on future big-money divorce cases.

Mrs Wright, a former riding instructor and legal secretary who lives with her younger daughter, 10, chose not to work when she and vet Ian Wright divorced in 2008 after 11 years of marriage.

Their £1.3 million seven-bedroom home was ordered to be sold and the proceeds split. Mrs Wright came away with a £450,000 mortgage-free house in Newmarket plus stabling for her horse and her daughters’ ponies.
Mr Wright, 59, was also ordered to pay her and the children £75,000 a year in maintenance and school fees.

Last year, he went to the High Court to seek a reduction in his bills, claiming that it was unfair to expect him to support his ex-wife indefinitely, even after he retires, while she made “no effort whatsoever to seek work”.

A family court judge told Mrs Wright to “just get on with it” and find a job, like “vast numbers of other women with children”. Now Lord Justice Pitchford in the Court of Appeal has rejected her challenge to the decision to slash her future maintenance.

Lord Justice Pitchford was also quoted as saying:" At retirement, the husband should not be paying maintenance for his spouse."
Elizabeth Hicks, a partner and family law expert at Irwin Mitchell, said the decision was the latest "where single judges have made it plain that spousal maintenance is no longer a meal ticket for life. The fact that it is a decision on Appeal gives it greater weight.

Of course this will do nothing to halt the tide of gold-diggers approaching wealthy beta males, but it does give a sign that there may be hope yet for men who've fallen victim to such entrapment.

Is this for real? It's going to stand, and not be reversed a few months from now?

RE: Appeals Judge tells ex-wife of millionaire to get a job
although the ruling seems very refreshing (to the extent it is not ignored by other judges or overruled on further appeal), it still seems to me the woman did quite well for herself out of this divorce:

Quote:Their £1.3 million seven-bedroom home was ordered to be sold and the proceeds split. Mrs Wright came away with a £450,000 mortgage-free house in Newmarket plus stabling for her horse and her daughters’ ponies.
Mr Wright, 59, was also ordered to pay her and the children £75,000 a year in maintenance and school fees.

stabling for her horse. jesus.

This is why you always have a secret fund, unknown to your wife and the government.
