Why the better half is entitled to the half

The Name Jeff Bezos is inextricably linked with the digital Revolution. It's also known as Amazon founder, Tech billionaire, "Washington Post"-Savior and the richest man in the world. The Name MacKenzie Bezos, by contrast, hardly anyone was until recently a term. This changed abruptly, as the two announced on Twitter a joint statement that they would leave after 25 years of marriage, a divorce.

The news catapulted the name of MacKenzie Bezos in the global Public sphere, usually with the addition that the wife of Jeff Bezos could be after the divorce, the richest woman in the world. And the more or less explicit fear that once again could destroy the financial claims of a woman, what did the man in the sweat of his brow.

Although it is still not at all clear how the gigantic Bezos-fortune will one day split. This, among other things, depends on where the Couple applies for divorce. A resident of the two of them are in Washington, where the law provides in the event of divorce, a joint division of the marriage assets. Therefore, the divorce-Tweet because it's also an occasion for to the herb shooting speculation. Since he is still at the top of the group and the majority shareholder, could affect a divorce also had a dramatic impact on the market value of the company – if, for example, his share would be divided. This would also affect the shareholders.

Remarkably, in this case, too, the way he is in the media is negotiated. The channel CNBC wrote: "Jeff Bezos' divorce could be the most expensive ever." In the case of Forbes, it was said: "you Can destroy the soon to be Ex-wife of Jeff Bezos Amazon ?" While it is understandable that journalists and shareholders, the question of how such an event will have an impact on one of the most valuable companies in the world.

Jointly agreed division of labour

with the swing But in the questions lots of prejudices: That the man has to pay his wife, without that you would have done something. That she makes him so unjust to assets easier. Thus, the (mostly male) journalists imply that the woman is foot Board driver in the success of her husband to benefit from his success, to have something done.

MacKenzie Bezos fits but not in this picture, on the contrary. The 48-Year-old was never just the pretty appendage of a brilliant inventor. She played a key role in Amazon. She met her husband in 1993, as a 23-Year-old and married him a year later, before they moved together to Seattle, and Amazon in a Garage founded. She worked there at his side, gripped together with Jeff in the first books packages for shipment to customers and negotiated the first contracts.

Later, the Couple had three children and adopted a fourth. All of the care and is concerned mainly with MacKenzie. The marriage of the two was a joint Venture with a jointly-agreed division of labor, each contributed his part. And, therefore, McKenzie now has to claim on their part. Since it has a strong social vein, it is well-conceivable that you will do with your money soon things will be your name forever in the collective memory. McKenzie Bezos deserves it.
