Last week, it was reported that former Beatle Paul McCartney has offered $50 million to end his marriage to his estranged wife Heather.
That's a lot of money. I don't know how much that would weigh in cash, but I think it is safe to classify it as a 'ton of money.'
Of course, Paul isn't exactly hurting when it comes to finances. He's a billionaire so we shouldn't worry too much about that.
Still, $50 million for a marriage that only lasted five years seems like a steep price.
In a case like this, it's impossible to know who has the moral high ground because there have been charges of misconduct from both sides. However, I do think there are a lot of people who would marry rich spouses if they knew there was a big pot of gold waiting for them after a few years.
I'm not saying this is the case here because I obviously know nothing regarding these two people.
It's just that money is a big factor when it comes to the decisions we make, and for many, that includes decisions about relationships.
Maybe I'm being cynical. Well, on this issue, color me cynical.
