I couldn't agree with you more. I hope that now the media circus that has surrounded their divorce will end and we can move on to some real news- like all the sex scandals in Albany

Ashcottmanor, it could be argued that any woman who does not work outside the home deserves nothing in a divorce because she did not help earn any money. The amount Heather received may be excessive to many people, however if it gives their child a good life, perhaps it was worth it in the end. Paul won't be in the poorhouse by any means.

^ I don't have a problem with Beatrice having a good life, she will inevitably get almost all his money as will his other children. I have a problem with the audacity Heather has to ask for more than her share (which isn't much). She expected to be treated the way she was when she was married to him and that's not what happens when you get a divorce. The gravy train stops there. And yes, for some other women it may be different, they may have contributed to their life and their children's lives in a substantial way, that's why when normal people get divorced they do split up assets and money, but for Heather to assume she has an absolute right to her husbands money that he made before they got married, just because she stayed around for four years does not make it right. Since this is the topic of Heather and Paul I was only isolating these particular people. We'll see what I say when another celebrity gets divorced.

Does anyone know if that is true?

Yes it's true, but they can be considered in court for the final judgment.

I checked it up and Prenups have indeed not legal recognition in the UK. Very few European countries actually have that system. And even in countries like the US which recognise them, it is not always enforced. Many wives managed to get the prenup overturned and got more than what was agreed. There always a loop-hole.
So I think Paul's mistake wasn't to not have a (legally void) prenup, but not to make a check-up on Heather's past like any sensible billionaire would have done. I am not even talking about the porn and the prostitution (which do not really say anything about someone suitability as a wife, imo), but the testimonies of all of those who have dealt with her that she is a nutjob, a compulsive liar and a gold-digger.

I'm not a romantic by far, but I find it really sad that people actually fault HIM for not getting a pre-nup?? Isn't getting married supposed to mean you trust someone? Men are can act very irrationally when they fall in love, more so than women, IMO, and Mills completely took advantage of him. He's Paul McCartney. If he was just in it to get laid by some hot blonde, he could get one that's actually hot and has both legs.

She needs to live far, far, away from society.

If you get divorced, you should leave with what you came in, nothing more or less. Why should i be forced to give you anything thats mine? Crazy..

^what if it's the husband ditching his wife of some loyal 10 years for a younger woman?

Marriage are partnerships. You put alot of time and effort into some. Some people get screwed, and in those cases recompensation is justified.

But if they did then how would Ms. Mills make her living?

Yes, but not in this case. In court Ms. Mills showed that they didn't contribute anything to the marriage of four years except a daughter, so why should she be compensated for being a gold digger? She shouldn't. And Paul didn't leave Heather for a younger woman, SHE left him because of...well actually everything she said in court was a lie since there is no evidence to back it up so therefore she left him because she wanted to and wanted his money. What a classy lady.

I know I really should stay out of this topic but I have to clarify something-it was Paul McCartney that filed for separation from Heather Mills. That I remember distinctly from the news reports at the time.

Now he is reportedly seeing 2 women (both much younger) and also reportedly hoping to introduce one of them to his 5-year old daughter. On top of that he makes unflattering comparisons between his ex and his late wife in a recent interview. (I guess little Beatrice can thank him for that later) Personally, I find it all but in the public's eyes it seems he can do no wrong. I am waiting to see how people react when Heather gets a new boyfriend....

IMHO, I don't feel any woman should have to "prove" her contribution to a marriage. Should we have to keep a journal detailing laundry we do, diapers we change, meals we cook or physical intimacy we provide just in case of a divorce?

Someone posted a comment about a background check. The UK tabloids and her ex husband gave Paul all the background he needed. He chose to continue the relationship. No one forced him into it.
