Jeff and Mackenzie Bezo’s recently finalized their divorce just a few weeks ago. They are the wealthiest couple in the world....ever. Their net worth is said to be $157,000,000,000.
Even though we may never get to ask them, “What happened?”, there is little doubt that the growing apart, attempting to repair, deciding to separate, and going through a divorce, was painful.
Even the most wealthy people in the world are not immune from heartache. They may have worked with the best therapists in the world and they still were not able to make it work.
There’s a couple of things I gather from this...
#1 Money does not guarantee a happy marriage. It can buy stuff and the best therapists, but it can’t replace attention and safety.
#2 Money isn’t a good enough reason to stay together. Hats off to to them for taking care of themselves and navigating a very public separation.
#3 If money isn’t what it takes, than ANYONE is capable of creating a loving, empowered, lasting marriage. We don’t struggle from a lack of resources. We struggle from a lack of resourcefulness.
