Everyone needs to earn money. We all wish to live those lavish lives we see celebrities living on television. We all wish to live in those classy houses and drive those Bentleys being flashed on our screens. Who doesn't want to indulge in dinners that involve drinking ridiculously expensive Champagne? So here’s my billion dollar question: How can you earn bags of cash without working your butt off?

Well if you want a lavish lifestyle without using a lot of energy then there is a simple solution…get married. Yes, find yourself a rich man or woman, young or old (though old is better because chances are they will die and leave you as heir to the fortunes) and get them to put a ring on it then divorce them afterwards.

Make sure your chosen target has amassed enough wealth to sustain you for the rest of your life before you divorce them. Play your cards right and you will soon be a millionaire or a billionaire. It’s a foolproof strategy and you don’t have to work another single day of your life. If you think that I am being delusional, here are some celebrities who became millionaires from their divorces.

NBA star Michael Jordan and his wife of seventeen years divorced after they were unable to reconcile their differences. Juanita had filed for divorce once before but withdrew saying that they decided to try and work on their marriage.

3 Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore: $400 million

2 Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren: $750 million

Tiger Woods was called out for his numerous escapades with his many mistresses. His then wife, Elin Nordegren, got tired of his cheating behind her back so she made sure she got her hands on a tidy sum when they divorced. She managed to get almost three quarters of Tiger's wealth and no one really blames her for cleaning him out so badly.

1 Rupert Murdoch and Anna Maria Torv: $1.7 billion

What would you do with $1.7 billion? Most people would retire on some exotic island, sipping away on expensive wines. Anna Maria Torv and Rupert Murdoch were married for thirty two years and had three children. After sorting through the terms of their prenuptial agreement, Anna Maria Torv ended up bagging herself a lot of money. This emphasizes the importance of a prenuptial agreement for both parties, it can potentially ensure you a lot of money in the event of a divorce. Imagine what she would have gotten had they not signed one!
