Once again, the moral of the story is no one should be more interested in the well-being of your finances than thine own self.
Well darn, I was going to pick up the tab for her. Oh well, I guess I will have to win her over with my good looks and charm.

Scratch yourself and belch when you say that...

"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

It gives you an idea of how much money there is in the endorsements business. She makes $3 million dollars per year. Shaun White makes $8 million per, and Kim Yu-Na makes $10 million. (from U.S. - Salaries of Shaun White, Kim Yu-Na, Lindsey Vonn, Ted Ligety, Apolo Ohno). Sharapova $24 million.

Vonn made $6 million a few years ago.

However, she did not have a pre-nup in her marriage.

So, when her divorce goes through, I bet she'd be paying alimony.

I wonder, would the courts see that he'd be entitled to 1/2 the share of her loot while she won the gold, especially since he was her coach.

damn. near the same age and grew up in the same town. I guess us inner city boys don't have a chance at those suburb girls.

you think they'll slap alimony on her? they were married in '07. Don't you have to be married for a certain amount of time?
