Botched Pre-nup, yeah!

New York Giants star Michael Strahan was ordered to pay his ex-wife $15.3 million, which is more than half his net worth. This payment is in accordance with the couple's prenuptial agreement. Under the agreement, Jean Strahan was entitled to 50 percent of their joint marital assets and 20 percent of his yearly income from each year they were married.

Using my Ph.D in mathematics along with my Masters degree in sexiness, assuming Strahan was the only one bringing home the Benjamin’s that would mean that it was only his salary going into their net worth. So on top of her 50% cut, she gets an extra 20% of his annual salary? Basically she walked away with 70% of his wages during the course of their marriage. I am not sure if Strahan’s lawyer really understood the concept of the pre-nup. Either that or he had feminist lawyer Gloria Allred prepare the papers. This agreement is like going to the carnival and actually paying $2 to play the game at the ‘Kick you in the Crotch’ booth.
