With the recent FX series American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson, the country’s love/hate relationship with the “trial of the century” and the cast of characters involved is at an all-time high. Searches for “bloody glove”, “Kato Kaelin”, “Nicole Brown Simpson”, and “Ron Goldman” are high on the recent search list of a lot of people’s computers and smartphones. One of the most interesting players in the OJ trial was Bob Kardashian, OJ’s friend and one of the members of the “dream team”. While Bob passed away some 13 years ago, he left behind a legacy and a host of reality stars in his kids and ex-wife Kris Jenner. Of the Kardashian children, some would say Kim is the most visible so it should come as no surprise that her every move is documented.
One of the more recent stories about Kim involves her often talked about marriage to Kanye West. The pair have reportedly been on the brink of divorce time and time again, and this time one of the reports of an impending divorce cites money as the reason. One story claims Kim has had enough of Kanye’s spending and it calling it quits over money issues. This is not an unfamiliar story, even to a non-celebrity couple, and it is a common belief that money is the number one cause of most divorces. Here are two ways money troubles can lead to divorce, even for a celebrity:
● The stress that comes with being unable to pay bills, due to overspending or simply not making enough to maintain a desired lifestyle, can lead to arguing over financial responsibilities between a couple. When a couple is trying to handle paying the bills without enough money, and is unable to talk about solutions without escalation the stress of not having enough money is increased. For many couples it is too difficult to overcome this level of anxiety, and divorce is the only answer. Sometimes separating is the only way to put the parties back on a level playing field and give them the chance to start over emotionally and financially.
● When one spouse makes significantly more than the other, conflict about how money is spent comes into play. No one likes to work hard for their paycheck, only to see it exit the bank account as quickly as it was deposited. This type of earning and spending pattern can lead to resentment, which if left unchecked can cause a couple to end their marriage in order to regain control over their lives.
Another way money becomes involved during divorce is when the parties are required to come to a financial agreement or settlement.
