Husband Keeps Wealth in Ruling

Divorce and Finance

A husband is entitled to keep the majority of his wealth after a judge’s ruling in divorce proceedings.  The husband inherited farms, land and an investment portfolio from his father.  Although the couple had been married 25 years, their estimated £21 million fortune was ruled not to be the result of their joint endeavours.  Therefore the sharing principle of divorce could be ignored and the wife was awarded £4.3 million.
