Elon Musk set to divorce wife for second time
Relationships are often complex and require a great deal of energy. Despite the effort two people in Texas may out into their relationship and the amount of love two people have for each other, couples can still struggle to make a marriage work. Elon Musk, co-founder of Paypal and head of Tesla Motors, is likely all too familiar with this as he and his wife seek to divorce a second time.
The couple originally married in 2010 and sought a divorce in 2012. At the time, they agreed to split assets according to a prenuptial agreement. He reportedly agreed to give his wife, actress Talulah Riley, approximately $16 million in addition to other assets.
However, the couple remarried in July 2013. Although Musk filed divorce papers in Dec. 2014, he withdrew the request several months later. Now, the couple says that they recently agreed to a divorce, and Riley filed divorce papers. According to some reports, the split is amicable, and the couple have been living separately for the last six months.
Marriage involves a great deal more than how two people feel about one another as people juggle their professional, financial and personal lives. Despite the efforts of many, some couples in Texas come to the realization that their marriage is no longer working. In these cases, often the best choice for all involved is to seek a divorce, allowing them to seek the next, perhaps happier, chapter in their lives. A attorney with experience with applicable laws can help those is such a situation as they go through the process of ending their marriage.
