    Divorce case. Guy has several hundred vinyl LPs he acquired before and during marriage. Some real quality stuff, lots of first runs and limited pressings. He would listen to them on his personal stereo in his home office. Wife never touched them. Of course, they are now at issue in the divorce. Wife clearly wants them just out of spite; she said she'd take them to the local record shop and get a buck a piece for them.

    This pisses me off, too. I'm also pissed at the legal system in his locale because the animals should have been taken away from him after his conviction of animal abuse and the multiple complaints against him for his handling of the animals.

    ^Serious question, in divorces, is it uncommon for the husband to after the wife's engagement/wedding ring/band?

    I only thought of it as I was trying to think of something that only the wife might care about that the husband would go after out of spite.

    Stuff like that really sucks. My co-worker went through a pretty nasty divorce last year. He basically gave away everything so that he could keep the kid. He even agreed to allow her to pay no child support.

    Depends on the jurisdiction but in most places the rings are a gift and cannot be taken back.

    There are some exceptions, and if a wife has a large and valuable enough jewelry collection it could be valued to use as an offset against the Husband's assets he wants to keep. But the market for resale of used jewelry is virtually non-existent.

    I don't doubt your co-worker's situation but in most jurisdictions he can't permanently give up child support. What he should do is get her to agree, then a year after the divorce is finalized file for support. Many Court will refuse to enforce the prior agreement. He should contact a local attorney if he has further questions.


    They have decent assets, a house, good retirement, some savings, and she'll get the bulk of it (probably 55% or even 60%) because of the disparity of their income levels. He's just really pissed she's going after his records. As a fellow lover of vinyl records it pissed me off as well.

    ugh. this is really minor, but I have an ethics exam this evening and all of it seems SO obvious. Then again, I'm kind of expecting multiple guess questions.

    My Business Ethics class was terrible in college. It was taught by a fromer CFO of a Fortune 100 company where he complained about how executives get paid too much. He wrote a book and made us read it. I was so confused.
