Divorce Makes Men Richer; Women Poorer?

Here's an interesting article from the UK Observer which states that men's financial status tends to improve after divorce, while women's worsens. "Divorce is a complete mess for women...The odds of getting a fair divorce settlement are quite simply stacked against women." It does make sense when you think of it this way - women are often a drain on the man's generally higher income, so even if she takes a piece of it when she leaves, she's going to be worse off financially in the long run, while he can often recover. Still, I know of too many men that have been decimated in divorce settlements, and struggle through a lot of emotional pain that interferes with their ability to advance their careers. Where is the sympathy for them? IHF submitted this story.
