Marriage then Divorce or Highway Robbery?

left_with_20_dollars_smToday I found this story below while randomly foraging the internet. It’s rare to see a divorce story where the man did nothing wrong (to my knowledge) and loses both financially and emotionally. Did he neglect his wife to start a business if they both agreed it was the right move in the long run? I think he got robbed? let me know what you think!!

[ Story below by Alex ]

My wife and I were married for 20yrs before we divorced. During the last 5 of those 20yrs I had started a business and it boomed. Needless to say, to facilitate the tremendous growth I’d experience I had to work a lot and she felt neglected. At the end, I had to sell my business and gave half to my wife (after Obama took his share), or about $6M. In a year’s span, my children went off to college, lost my wfie, lost the business I’d worked so hard to build and am alone.

Who am I? A man of few words so I’ll keep things brief. I’m a big technology buff, and dabble with many things such as photography, and web design. My father is a dreamer, great judge of character, self-made engineer, coach, and hard worker. My is mother a realist, planner, and has the strength to be worry free under pressure. I’m a diamond in the rough, in another time maybe a King! Who knows, I am a product of my roots, and the best of both worlds, I dream and execute. So “Who am I?” I’m still being defined! Photography is my hobby I take pictures of anything interesting.

  1. Wow…that’s awful! But I wonder what the issues were in the marriage prior to the business that she felt neglected rather than a part of the team?!
