Hard on the heels of Anne Dias-Griffin demanding that her ex pay her $1 million per month in either spousal support or child support depending on when you ask her, comes this article (Daily Mail, 2/23/15). American judges could learn a thing or two from the two British judges who ruled in the case. Specifically, they could memorize the words “Get a job.”
It seems that Ian Wright and Tracey Wright were married for a time and have a couple of kids. Its being the U.K., of course she has custody of the children and he pays her child and spousal maintenance. That turned out to be a very, very good deal for her because he’s a top-flight veterinarian whose specialty is surgery on racehorses. That means his clients are wealthy enough to own racehorses and have them operated on when the need arises. Good work if you can get it.

Back last summer, hedge fund manager Ken Griffin filed for divorce from his wife, Anne Dias-Griffin, who is herself the founder of Aragon Global Management (Business Insider, 7/24/14). Here’s what Dias-Griffin said through her attorney at the time:
Anne's highest priority remains her family, especially the well-being of her children. She is hopeful that this personal matter can be resolved privately and in the best interests of her children.
Good for her; the welfare of the kids should always be parents’ top priority whether or not they’re divorcing. But that was then. Now we’re starting to get an idea of just what Dias-Griffin meant last July (The Journal, 2/24/15).
