PostSubject: Woman ordered to pay ex-husband $4k a week   June 15th 2010, 3:13 am

A wealthy woman has reportedly been ordered to pay her ex-husband $4000 a week so that he can keep the lifestyle he was used to.

The wife, who cannot be named, is one of Australia's richest divorcees, with more than $600 million in assets and an income of almost $60,000 a week.

Initially she was prepared to pay only $18 a week to her former husband, who earns $380 a week as a waiter in a Sydney restaurant.

According to a report in The Australian, Family Court judge John Cohen said that arrangement was unfair because the husband had "lived the life of a very wealthy gentleman" until the pair split two years ago.

"To expect him to work as a waiter in a suburban restaurant or club, as he was when he met his wife, and as he is now doing, is quite unreasonable," Justice Cohen said.

At the start of their marriage in 1985 they lived modestly and the husband worked a day and night job.

But over time the wife began to earn expenses from a trust and the couple's lifestyle changed.

According to the court they spent $19,230 on a television set and $4500 on an espresso machine in 2008.

Justice Cohen said a "good measure" of the manner in which the couple lived was a statement from their black American Express credit card for the 2007 financial year.

The total charges were $500,527, or around $9000 a week.

The court heard that the couple "always owned expensive cars, they travelled overseas, they spent $1200 on one dinner at a restaurant in Tokyo and $1000 at another in Paris, the whole family travelled business class by air".

The husband told the court he would need $8543 a week to "maintain the lifestyle he has become accustomed to".

The wife will have to pay $4000 a week until a final split of assets is agreed at a later date.

too much money and not enough sense from either of them

im sure they could do something a little more creative than spend 1200 on a meal.
