Elena Rybolovlev earned an average of £321,600 per day for 24 years… for being married

From the Daily Mail:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2633382/Russian-oligarch-ordered-pay-world-record-2-7-BILLION-divorce-settlement-six-year-court-battle-US-mansions-100million-Greek-island.html

It’s the story of the divorce settlement between a Russian oligarch, Dmitry Rybolovlev, and his wife Elena, who’ve been married for 24 years. They met before he made his money. There’s no suggestion in the article – or any other articles I’ve read – that she played the slightest part in his business activities.

You have to assume they both lived in the lap of luxury since he made his fortune. The divorce settlement is equivalent to £321,600 for every day of their marriage. What did Elena Rybolovlev do to deserve such an astonishing sum? She married him, and bore one child. And for this she gets £2.7 BILLION? Let’s present the sum numerically:

£2,700,000,000

This is said to be the largest divorce settlement in history, but it’s merely an extreme example of the toxic phenomenon of women using divorce for personal enrichment. We shouldn’t be surprised that women file 75% of divorce applications. The state encourages them to divorce.
