I hear that the divorced in West Country is pricey. I heard a basketball superstar has to share the assets with the ex wife.
In East country, the wife will not get the husband assets unless the husband permits him. It is illegal for wife to grab the former husband assets.
That is why some husband in West creates a pre-wedding contract that guarantee the assets.
