It’s one of the largest divorce settlement in U.S. history, but it ain’t over yet. After being awarded nearly one billion dollars in the divorce, the former wife on an oil billionaire says it’s not enough. She’s going for a larger share of the marital assets. But for one billion dollars, would you be willing to walk away?
In part, it’s a matter of perspective. A billion is a lot to most of us, but Sue Ann and Harold Hamm aren’t most of us. He is one of America’s oil tycoons. She was his wife for 25 years, and a lawyer for his company. Being awarded nearly a billion dollars in cash and assets doesn’t come close to the $14 billion he’s worth, so she’s appealing.
But a billion dollars could be a lot of temptation for the rest of us. Heck, a couple of hundred could be temptation for some of us.
