So, how much is a sports wife worth?
According to the divorce settlement of Michael Jordan it is worth $168,000,000... 9 figures!!!
Now let's discuss some facts... Juanita was married to Michael for 18 years. Based on pure unbiased math, she will receive $9,333,333.33 for each year of her marriage to Mike... or in other words, $25,570.78 per DAY!! ... EVERY DAY!!... for the past 18 YEARS!! Is there anyone on the face of this earth that YOU would pay $25.6 thousand a day to live with for nearly two decades? ANYONE???
The salary of hard working Americans falls far short of that kind of money. In fact, 93% of American workers earn less than $100,000 per year. Wait, before you start ranting about the children she gave birth to and "raised", she was financially "taken care of" by Mike during their marriage. She lived in the "big house", not a cottage on the property... She drove the "luxery car", not a "hooptie". She wore fine clothes, not "Walmart specials". She ate fine foods, not "fried bologna". She lived a GOOD life while being married to Mike and that should not be discounted in the equation... As a matter of fact, it should be taken into consideration in the final decision.
So why is she getting $168 million dollars for 18 years of child and home care? BECAUSE SHE CAN! Our government passed laws to protect wives from thoughtless, cruel, insensitive, slime ball husbands who left wives for younger more exciting women. The problem is, they did not put anything in the law to protect the husband from the gold diggers. What is a gold digger? Anyone is uses marriage or a relationship to acquire money from their mate that they could not have earned on their own. So I ask, what skill does Juanita possess that would net her $9.3 Million dollars a year?? I doubt she can make that amount for the next 18 years speaking about (for profit) "being married to Michael Jordan"... You think??
Juanita Jordan is entitled to some compensation... FAIR compensation! However, $25.6 thousand per day is WAY off base! Until there is fairness in D-I-V-O-R-C-E laws, all stars (male and female) should heed this warning... Live Single in youth and play your sport!!!
(Can you say: Derek Jeter Is Single?)
How much are you willing to pay for a mate to leave you after 18 years... for whatever reason. $2.56 hundred per day? $2.56 thousand per day? $25.6 thousand per day? What do you think is the fair limit? In sports, either you win or you lose but in sports, a loss today does not penalize you in your next game. The next team has to earn their win... NOT receive points from your previous loss! Hmmmmm, that sounds fair.
In my humble opinion... Live single while you are young and playing sports... It's safer than being married to a very patient gold digger waiting for the BIG pay day!!... $25.6K per day!
