If you’re going through a divorce, make sure you get enough alimony for ice cream.
According to India Today, a Mumbai, India man was forced to do just that: Pay a little bit more to his ex-wife each month so that she could afford ice cream.
In dollars, he has to pay his wife just over $1,300 a month in alimony plus an extra $2.50 for her sweet tooth.
Interestingly enough, the divorce was actually over ice cream. He said that she blew all of his hard-earned cash on the dairy treat while she said that he made tons of money as a stockbroker, so who cares.
The Mumbai family court finally settled the couple’s divorce on July 30, ending 23 years of marriage. But the ex-wife arguably won in the divorce settlement, because the judge ordered him to pay extra alimony every month specifically so that she can buy ice cream.
After losing his wife to ice cream, he will pay for her ice cream for life. That is the sickest poetic justice we’ve ever heard.
It’s hard to say why the court came down against the husband, but it probably has a lot to do with his earnings. His ex-wife claimed that he was a successful businessman who has even dined with U.S. billionaire Warren Buffett.
He merely countered that she burned through all of his savings by shopping and maxing-out their credit cards.
The ice cream divorce settlement lady will also receive extra alimony for the couple’s two children.
