Notice it says they have been separated for quite some time. I would guess the settlement talks are already finished.

I liked the article all the way until the end. Why bring Trump into it? Does everything and anything have to involve Trump?

Loving exploration? Does that have anything to do with conscious uncoupling?

They were married before Amazon, all the wealth was accumulated after marriage, so would be split 50/50.

Looks like he won't be the richest man in the world.
Although he might be the most eligible bachelor

Guess he may drop to only 7th or 8th richest man. At least he will still be in the top ten.

I don't know why you would make such a broad statement. I am a lawyer and I definitely am not happy that they or anyone else are getting divorced.
