The Wall Street Journal has an interesting and hopeful story this morning -- a DIY divorce for billionaires.
"Tim and Edra Blixseth spent 25 years building a $2 billion life together.
When they decided to divorce, they spent a single afternoon in the Beverly Hills Hotel, dividing it all up. With just two notebooks and a bottle of wine, the Blixseths -- California real-estate tycoons and founders of the famed Yellowstone Club -- finished the job in a matter of hours.
No attorneys. No accountants. No judges.
The story continues, but the site is subscription only.
As a wine lover, I'm interested in what wine they chose for this important life passage.
As a lawyer, I applaud their maturity and good sense. Would that more people in our society would resolve their differences in such an admirable way.
