From the article:
" Before Petrakis married Peter Petrakis in 1998, she was presented with what her lawyer called a "heavy handed" prenup that would give her $25,000 for every year that she and her husband were married, but nothing more. She originally refused to sign it, but a few days before her wedding, she agreed to sign after her husband promised her he would do away with the prenup once the two began to have children. He did not destroy the prenup, even after they had children, according to his estranged wife.
The couple separated, and a court ruled on Feb. 20 that Peter Petrakis had "fraudulently induced" Elizabeth Petrakis to sign the prenup that hung only on a verbal promise.
But Elizabeth Petrakis' cousin Alisa Houraney claims that there was more to the marriage's end than a problematic prenup
Houraney and her now ex-husband Steve Houraney were married at a 250-person wedding in Garden City, N. Y., in 2007. But Houraney said that within weeks of the wedding, she suspected the affair.
Houraney said that she and her cousin Elizabeth were so close that Elizabeth was in the waiting room a few weeks later when Houraney gave birth.
["She was sleeping with him, and she was in the waiting room when I delivered my son," Houraney said. "[My husband] left me there, and went with [Petrakis] in the waiting room."]
Houraney and her husband were married for less than a year before splitting.
["I just feel that, somebody like that, people need to know the truth," Houraney said. "She says her husband is a good guy and he's a good person. He treated her like a princess, never was mean to her, never cheated on her. I don't understand why she's saying, 'poor victim' when you had a good life and you have to destroy two families."] "

I'm not voting because I don't think she should get nothing, but she should get something -- just not as much as she did. The reason is because I researched further in to this case and it seems there were witnesses of his verbal agreement between the two of them and a team of lawyers when the draft (s) yes, plural, of the prenup had been made. The case for fraud was proven, otherwise if it's just he said/she said it wouldn't stick. His contract was void therefore they were back at square one.
I wish more people would read more about these things than jump to conclusions. There are always holes in the story the media gives. this was one of them. I read the initial article and immediately thought, "No. I have to get more of this story." I actually hoped to find nothing to support this tramp, but unfortunately, the system did find a way to prove her ex husband was a liar, so I have to say, Peter Petrakis sort of did this to himself too.

I'm sorry, but this is the type of crap that I wouldn't put up with in that situation. If that was me, I'd have beat her to death, paid someone to #WHACK her ass or made her life a living hell somehow #ThinkItsAGame. Basically, The legal system needs to be reworked because there isn't any way in hell that she should have even gotten a #penny of his money, in this case, . i1127.photobucket.com/.../ezgif.com-add-text.gif
They need to completely abolish all of the traditional marriage.. well divorce perks like alimony, prenups etc for women. UNTIL WOMEN GET NOTHING AT ALL FROM DIVORCING A GUY besides being separated from him. Since girls can make their own money these days so those 1900 rules need to be thrown out of the window. Then and only then will people get married for the right reason IMHO
Only women can get away with stories like these funny right?
