Divorcing a Material Girl in a Material World...
Madonna and her husband of 7 and 1/2 years are reportedly going to divorce after Madonna finishes her latest tour.
There is reportedly no pre-nuptial agreement, and Madonna is certainly the far richer partner in their marriage...to the tune of 300 million pounds.
I believe they are both British citizens (Maddonna has a dual citizenship, if I recall correctly)...and they were both married in the U.K., so we now will see just how gender biased the U.K. divorce courts really are.
It will be highly interesting to see the alimony and child custody rulings...especially if you compare how this one turns out versus how the last U.K. high profile, rich pop-music star divorce of Paul McCartney and Heather Mills turned out.
As for this picture of Madonna as a hitchhiking exhibitionist...it's merely a bit of tasteless reminiscing on my part, as I remember seeing this photo of her when I was a teenager, when she was in her physical prime. All my guy friends and I thought she was one of the hottest stars at that time.
Compare and contrast to her recent photos in which she looks like an emaciated zombie assembled by the finest plastic surgeons money can buy....I think it serves as the perfect example of how aging females in this age of Matriarchal narcissism believe that they can always maintain their sexual appeal indefinitely if they have the money to pay for plastic surgery.
Guy Ritchie is definitely cashing out according to the custom and traditions of modern day British divorce culture at the right time. In 5 more years, she is going to be looking pretty hideous. Being in great physical shape and having the best surgeons money can buy still cannot hide the fact that female beauty is intrinsically tied to fertility...and at 50, her days as a sex idol are over.
However, I hope Madonna actually wins her divorce case and gets sole custody of the kids, and forces Guy Ritchie to pay her alimony.
Than this high profile divorce will demonstrate just how gender biased the whole divorce industry really is.
Having Guy "win" in the same fashion as Heather Mills will only lend an aura of credibility to the current injustices of the present day system.
