What I Conclude From Jeff Bezos's Divorce

Here's What I learned from Bezos's Divorce

1. Marriage is Unpredictable & Volatile

Jeff Bezos's marriage to Mackenzie ending after 25 years of marriage showed me how marriage is unpredictable & volatile. Hence I believed marriage in the present is high risk, little to no reward.

2. Marriage Amplifies the Risk of Suffering Heartache

If Jeff Bezos aren't immune to the heartache of divorce, then what chance do people like me in reducing the risk of suffering heartache.

3. Falling In Love is Just as Dangerous as Taking Controlled Substances

I feel falling in love is dangerous because it has the power to destroy a human by inflicting heartache & pain of betrayal.

4. Love is Equivalent of Playing Russian Roulette

Falling in love today is equivalent to playing Russian Roulette. Why fall in love when falling in love is same as gambling with their own finance, happiness, & time?

  • Why would you bother wanting to learn ANYTHING from a celebrity divorce involving two people you know absolutely nothing about? The real lesson you should be taking from this is to get a life, and learn lessons from your OWN experiences, or at least from people you know.

    Jeff Bezos is one of the most evil people to have ever lived. He has over 100 billion dollars and said that he couldn't think of any way to use his money other than go to space. There are starving children and kids dying of cancer, but he goes to bed every night not caring about them? How does he even sleep? He is psychotic.

      The government has poured billions into that. Why should it be his responsibility to take care of the worlds problems?

    • 1d

      "Sure, he can support the creation of local filtration plants in rural villages that lack access to clean water. He can fund the contruction of schools, especially girls schools, where there is no education. He can purchase modern farm equipment for poor farmers to help them increase yield. He can construct affordable housing for those without homes. Instead this asshole "can't think of anything to spend his money on"."

      This seems logical until you ask "why don't these people have these things already?" and then you do some research and you find that the main reason they don't is because a dictator or warlord takes anything of value from these people by force and either keeps it for himself or gives it to his cronies in order to consolidate his power. And that's exactly what would happen.

      During the famine in Somalia, governments poured billions of aid into the country - and the local warlords immediately seized the food, medicine, supplies, etc., and carted them back to their compounds, and the people continued to starve - except those who chose to go to work for the warlord and do his dirty work.

      You see this same pattern again and again and again.

      Look at even a relatively major power like Russia. Russia has immense resources at its disposal, it has some excellent scientists and engineers and designers, but its total GDP is tiny, and people starve there at times. Why? Because the government has for many decades taken anything of value for itself, and people have been unmotivated to be productive and innovative because there is little reward for doing so. Thankfully, this is SLOWLY changing, but Putin and other hardliners are doing everything they can to maintain power, at the expense of the country.

      Bezos's investments might be the difference of humans being able to sustain life somewhere other than Earth 100 years earlier, or the ability to deflect an asteroid that would wipe out all life. He's thinking bigger picture.

    If the government didn’t have their nose In people’s relationships ready to take all a guys assets and force him to pay for this and that or go to jail it wouldn’t be a bad risk. Government interference in relationships is what makes things so awful. It sucks to be betrayed romantically and have your heart broken but in time you get past it, move on, and form new relationships. Having the Sheriff of Nottingham threatening to take away your freedom if you don’t pay up so he can give some treats to the women that ripped out your heart is an entirely different story. The world is fucked up in the way it is currently structured.

    People are wrong not marriage.
    When students fail, it is because they are lazy and it not the school's fault.
    A lot of graduates struggle to find a job but that doesn't it is not worth going to unis in the first place.
    I hate boys who keep writing mytakes against marriage on this app.

    Men are against marriage because marriage protects women from being used and dumped.

    The idea is a woman should not lose her virginity before marriage, and if a man loves her, he should marry her before sleeping with her or making her pregnant.

    Therefore, it is very obvious why men hate this rule and marriage, because it means they can't treat women like an object, piece of meat or a like a joke. Marriage means commitment. That's why men hate marriage.

    Men know if they get married, they can't sleep with another woman, they have their options open, they can't have second thoughts or a backup plan.

    A lot of men touch women for months and years, and then they dump women to have another adventure with another hot woman.

    Now, those playboys, womanisers, fuckboys, cheaters, fake guys who use love to get sex, who have commitment issues hate marriage because it puts women in a stronger position.

    Men hate marriage because marriage protects women from f*ckboys, from womanisers, from men who jump from one girl to another, from pump and dump culture, use and dump culture, from guys who get women pregnant and then run away, from guy who cause to emotionally become attacked through a physical relationship and then when they get bored of her body they run away to have another adventure with another sex object, with another piece of meat,

      @bamesjond0069 anyone who speaks the truth is called a "sexist," or "racist," how can someone speak the truth by being 100% neutral and politically correct? If people call you sexist, then it means you must have said something correct that triggered them because truth is bitter. They prefer sweet lies. How is sexism even wrong? Nowadays, everything is sexist. Men and women are DIFFERENT not equal. Nowadays, if a teacher will tell a boy not to dress up as a princess or if he tells a girl not to dress up as a superman, he will get sacked according to the law. The more education is increasing, the dumber people are becoming. One parents were interviewed in their house 3 times to ask if their boys are allowed to play with barbie dolls, and they just wanted to let boys be boys. One sign of the last day is that women will look like men and men will look like women. I have seen that. They have introduced gender fluid fashion.

      the comments of the men are disgusting. One guy said, "the most expensive prostitute ever" they are still writing hate comments against women. They are so bothered by the divorce bill get. Their comments are making my blood boil. One guy said, "marriage has no benefits for men, a woman comes with more then she went in it." One lady is heart broken and people are still jealous of her. The whole attention on the fact she will get a divorce bill of £3 billion and not on the fact, her husband CHEATED on her. Even the headlines in the newspaper said, a woman will get £3 billion when they should have said, "a woman got betrayed after 24 years of marriage." People are showing jealous instead of comfort or sympathy. They are putting a price on a woman's life, love, feelings and her broken heart. Her heart is made of gold because she spent 24 years of her life with her husband. How can put a price tag on a woman's dignity?

      @Shezadi I mean, I'm all against cheating. But how long does it take to heal a broken heart and how long does it take to make 3 billion pounds? hell, you could get a lifetime's worth of therapy sessions and be back on your feet in no time and still have 2.9 billion in your pocket. She'll be fine in easily a year without much help, and prob find another guy (if she so chooses, she prob won't because she'll have to find some guy who can compete with her 3 billion).

      there's a reason guys don't trust marriage and its not because of lust. if 50% of marriages end in divorce, and I lose half of everything I've ever made to my wife outta some spiteful / hatefilled last ditch attempt to ruin my life (as has happened to my peers), what's the point? its ruined their livelihoods and it takes decades to recover.

      its not about hating women, its not about promoting cheating, the fact remains that marriage is one of the most difficult things a guy can do correctly because of the high chance of failure, yet we keep trying and getting burned by it.

    The undeniable truth is.. any thing can take precedence esp temptations, lots of hot girls to meet with. Esp when you're a guy, resourceful and powerful and no boundaries requires you to stay faithful, if you 're rich like Jeff Bezos. It doesn't matter if the marriage breaks up, she is young and attractive and will be incredibly rich after settlement. (Ok, maybe a broken heart to contend with now and that will take time to nurse before she opens up herself to someone new and different. The marriage has soured for at least a year by an estimated guess. Shit happens but at least she will be well taken care of. Never mind the break up because she's given her best and stayed faithful to help him flourish in his career.

      because the divorce bill is £3 billion. The man has £137 billion. The woman will become the richest woman on the planet after getting the divorce bill. People are hating the woman because of the divorce bill she will get but they are not hating the man for cheating on her.
      That rings a bell and I see a story there. Why can't people see that she spent 24 years of her life with him, she put her heart on her sleeves, she probably had children too, gave her body for 24 years, how can they put a price tag on a woman's heart, her broken heart, her golden heart, love, feelings, sacrifice and 24 years of her life.

      a woman with dignity will never show up even if you offer her money in billions. Weak men hate marriage and weak men fall for whores. Real men choose dignified women and real men get married and male angels touch women after marriage. Weak men with commitment issues are scared of marriage. Whilst, there are men who will marry a lady even if she ends up having cancer or a terminal illness, even if she becomes disabled, they will love her even if she is in the hospital everyday, even when she is in her pyjamas, without makeup, baggy jumpers, even when she gains weight, even when she is in not "in the mood" for romance. For that man with a golden heart, the lady is more than just a body, the man understands that she has a heart, soul, mind, feelings, she is someone's daughter, sister and future mother. She is not there to look sexy everyday and to entertain, she can also have bad days.

    There is lots of information out there on what why, how, etc.. you just need to get educated to decide what you will do. I see marriages that work, are really good for both and the kids, and productive... produce decent offspring.

    No doubt it is commitment and work and risk, so maybe a better question is what is the value of marriage now vs the risk faced?
