Recently, we discussed a high-profile couple in the middle of divorce proceedings for what by any account would be a high asset divorce. This was not just any high-profile couple. Harold Hamm, the owner of a multi-million dollar oil company, Continental Resources, was battling for himself and his company in a bitter divorce from his wife of 26 years. The financial portion of these proceedings have now been decided, and Hamm is likely pleased with the outcome of the high net worth divorce.
When most people think of the divorce of a high-profile couple, they think stress and months of bashing each other in the press. This often happens since famous couple's typically have a high net worth divorce to reckon with. The amount of money and assets to be divided can bring out the worst in people. Such doesn't seem to be the case for singer Jewel and her husband of 16 years, Ty Murray. The couple has resided on a Texas ranch for the past several years with their son and recently announced their plans to divorce.
Prenuptial agreements have been popular for years among high-asset, high-profile couples, but it is reportedly increasingly common for these agreements to include provisions on personal matters such as infidelity. According to some reports, A-list celebrities have been making agreements that one will get hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars if the other cheats.
