The role of a Financial Director – a life in the spotlight
Whether pre-nuptial agreements are less fair to women is debatable and, the recently published Law Commission’s recent report raises some important gender issues. The report states that, “…concerns about gender equality and fairness are linked to a general view that the financially weaker spouse, perhaps financially weaker because of childcare responsibilities, should not be left with nothing at the end of the marriage.”
Last week, the Law Commission published its recommendations on the issue of “qualifying nuptial agreements” (meaning prenuptial and postnuptial agreements).
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s divorce settlement is edging closer and now we know there is no pre-nuptial agreement (unlike the Coen brothers film of the above name). Hollywood being what it is, the onetime highest grossing female actress is in the autumn of her career and Ashton is now the wealthy younger buck. Demi wants some of the financial action. After all she was the bigger Hollywood player when they got together and gave his career a leg-up.
