lol, have you ever heard the term one man business, most business started like that, most business were run by one individual until they grow and add staffs

She's not a co founder on any SEC document.

She was only a staff early on.

If you have any proof to back up your assertion, share it here or stop spouting inaccurate claptrap.

Before poor men start calling her a gold digger.

She was the first employee of amazon. She is also a successful novelist.

She did had lot of shares in amazon before divorce, making her a billionaire on her own right. She now owns 4% of amazon also she had to lose her voting right to her ex husband. She is not a gold digger like others and she deserve what she got because she has also put in the work in building amazon.

She was lenient and a very good woman to the best of my knowledge.
She worked for it and took only what she earned, Jeff should be thankful. Tiger woods comes to mind.

co founder ko, call founder ni, i am sure you want to elevate Nigerian women that they can do better, but sorry you are not a white woman.

have you ever read the history of amazon before writing what you wrote down, even on wiki or the company site, she is not listed as a co founder, she her self said, she doesnt know anything about business.

Jeff Bezos told his wife about his revolutionary plan for an online bookstore that he would later name Amazon.

"I'm not a businessperson. So to me, what I'm hearing when he tells me that idea is the passion and the excitement," MacKenzie Bezos told CBS in 2013 . "And to me, you know, watching your spouse, somebody that you love, have an adventure what is better than that, and being part of that?

In 1994, the couple drove from New York City to Seattle, the eventual Amazon headquarters, with MacKenzie Bezos driving and Jeff Bezos "tapping out a business plan on his computer along the way," as Wired wrote in 1999 . With their dog Kamala in tow, "Jeff spent the trip pecking out a business plan on a laptop computer and calling prospective investors on a cell phone," according to Entrepreneur .

MacKenzie Bezos became an accountant for Amazon, and is considered one of the company's earliest employees. According to Wired , she was responsible for negotiating Amazon's first freight contracts, ironically, at a Barnes and Noble bookstore.

I'm saying that law is sh*t. In France the law states that a man cannot get a paternity test. That law is sh*t.

If a law is not logically fair, it's sh*t and should be amended. And people who call for said amendment should not be cast as bigots by those who predominantly benefit from the law.

And the interesting part is that women are in general tight-fisted with their money. Her money is hers, his money is ours.

-Lord

women who are tight fisted with their money do that because their partners have allowed them to/created the atmosphere for such

That is a fact

Upbringing of a lot of women also have its role to play
BUT

Their partners allow and permit it

are you serious with what you wrote down..how does women upbringing, money goes with paternity test, do you know women are the key to child birth, if another man impregnates a married woman and then she makes it look like it her husband who did it, when the man knows about what happened, do you think, it is logical or fair for the man to still support the child that is not his own, do you think the man will be comfortable with the woman.

And am sure you are a staunch misogynist but here's a reality check: Nigerian women do not need to be white women in order to get settlement from a divorcing spouse.
We have the Matrimonial Causes Act!

If you are married under the act and your spouse is divorcing you or your are divorcing for any of the established grounds, such person is entitled to settlement. A fair share of WHATEVER WAS ACQUIRED DURING THE SPAN OF THE MARRIAGE.

Go to court on any weekday and see for yourself.

Jeff got a steal with that settlement. Enough said!

no Nigerian woman can never get this type of settlement in her lifetime because they dont build wealth with their men.... so wake up from your slumber.. how many of them can even support a man that wanna build a business like how jeff ex-wife did, their only contribution is nagging a man to death. most women that i have seen that supported their husbands to success and greatness and added her skills to the growth of the business has been white women, that is why they get nice packages when divorced.

i am a misogynist for disagreeing with you.if that is it let it be.. you need to grow up.

You mean the same way the partners also let the women determine the composition of their social circle, the interests that they can continue to fester, and all of little things they subtly do that turns out to be a training regime.

You really can't be serious. Unless you're trying to be clever by half. This is not even in the realm of anecdotes, it is a universal truth. Poll any random sample size of guys and majority would tell you "his is ours. hers is hers" is not a Hollywood machination.

And I'd be damned if I try to contest that with you. Your statement is the equivalent of saying women don't use sex as a bargaining chip in relationships. It only happens because "their partners allow and permit it." Yh right!

pls get my point


The way A LOT OF WOMEN we're raised contributed to their mentality towards "their money"

I once dated a German then (of Ukrainian origin sha, but she German) and the policy was "our money is our money"
I made it clear from day 1 that this was my expectation of our relationship; and if she no want, there is no point we going to any level

And that was it.


in subsequent relationships after that; it was the same

so it's a blend of the upbringing and mentality of the woman AND the tolerance of their partners towards the policy.

that's my point

as for women using sex as a bargaining chip; that's the truth in many many instances

It's the old nature/nurture debate. I didn't want to get into it, because the observation doesn't require it.

The point about partner permission is not as important as you're making it. Because by and large every relationship is bound by mutually-agreed rules. Doesn't change the compass needle for all of society or the default behavioral elements.

By default, the "hers is hers, his is ours" anthem holds true. You're an exception to the rule, not the epitome.

So when I say in general, women are tight-fisted with their money, the factors that inform that position aren't what I want to dwell on, just the observation.

You may need to widen your horizons.

Nigerian women are just as supportive as white women. Even more so. We just don't have the same laws and the will to enact even the ones we have now.

For example, here men threaten their wives all the time to send them packing. In the US, you can't even threaten your live-in FWB whether she has contributed a dime to rent or not, due to tenancy laws. You have to give prior notice and she has to be able to get a place to stay. If she's a wife or legally protected co-habitant, and she's unable to afford a decent accommodation, you're legally obligated to provide such until she's able to. Failure to do so could mean charges being brought. And the best part, tenancy laws doesn't require expensive legal representation.

That's why you see Nigerian feminists bleating up and down, because they know if only a tenth of Western laws are enforced in Nigeria, there'd be gnashing of teeth. And why I advice the so-called knights to be careful what they wish for, because we can all testify to the preponderance of Nigerians (women and men alike) to overdo...

By Western standards, someone like Nana Otedola helped Femi Otedola build his business empire and deserves 50% of all his wealth if they were to divorce today. She doesn't need to know anything about oil and gas or any business for that matter. Bezos would have had to give Mackenzie the $35b or $65b even if she didn't work in the formative years of Amazon. Melinda Gates didn't, and she's still entitled by current legal standards to $40b+.

Don't put white women on a pedestal. Na condition make cray fish bend.

is everything your father wrote in your mother names worth up to 50 million naira and also which man in his right senses will put all his property in his wife names while excluding himself, most sensible men put their wives and their names in any property they own, making it joint ownership.


if nigerian men are lying cheating scumbags...i guess your father must be among them.

you dont know what you are talking about, i am not putting any white woman on any pedestal...white women come from a system that believes that entrepreneurship can help you live the lifestyle you want to in the future that is why they are very supportive to their spouse when he is building, theres is a building society compare to ours, how many people here have created wealth and who is gonna support you when family members are also against you.

i am saying the facts that is why in the same america more black men marry white women because they consider them supportive. we can even look at present factual facts here in Nigeria, how many women are ready to build wealth with their husband or bf then we can compare it to the number of women who wants ready made rich husband, the latter is higher than the former and this is reality, the reason many Nigerian women want ready made men is because of standard of living and also because we are a poor country where resources is scares, so what are you talking about, how many Nigerian women in this generation wont hesitate to leave your sorry ass once the cash is no more there.. the old generation is different from the new generation, this generation no woman believes in you or your dreams, they even mock you and shame you, why struggle with you when the next bobo down the street has already made it. you think say to start the business in nigeria from scratch na easy task, i sometimes understand these women, as a man to create a business from scatch is difficult, depressing, you are living life on the edge.. which Nigerian woman want to take that risk. i dont even advice young entrepreneurs to date or marry when building their business, most Nigerian women won't understand when sometimes you are moody, your emotions are swinging daily, you are sometimes depressed and almost suicidal until the business grows and is stable

and the stuff you wrote about odetola and his wife is false, the man was already rich when he married her and who told you they built wealth together, his father was former governor of lagos state who had access to power to get contracts for oil blocks. the company he controls today was built by his father, nana does not have any right to any 50% if they divorce today.

So in the US, men dont threaten their wives, FWB and girl friends and dont send them packing.. i hope you know what you are saying, they do that also.. i read about men driving their wives, GF or FWB back to her parent house or her house, pls nothing is perfect in america.

pls tenancy laws in the US does not work like you wrote it in the case of GF and FWB.. are they paying rent? no is a GF or FWB a legal tenant- NO.. you can evict and send them packing from your house as long they dont pay rent and there is no contract agreement,

The problem really is that due to human nature it's impossible to strike a balance. Cultures would always sit close to one of two extremes like a swinging pendulum. Power can intoxicate. So whichever gender sniffs it just keeps running with it until they reach an extreme and things swing to the opposite.

I mean in Georgian England, husbands had the right to hit their wives for discipline. Today, it is socially acceptable for women in general to slap a guy if she feels like it. Swinging pendulum.

Oga a white woman would just as likely drop you like a hot potato if you run into financial difficulties. Say what you know.

And women the world over (regardless of race) marry up, including those who are able to fend for themselves. Hypergamy is a fact of life.

If you think a Nigerian woman is selfish, you clearly haven't sized up the intellect of a Caucasian woman. Their feelings and happiness are the most important things in their lives.

You talking about Nigerian women not understanding pressures and all of that stuff, and you somehow think Caucasian women compromise on family life, having their time, and all of those things Nigerian men take for granted. Why do you think successful people from millionaires to billionaires over there marry and divorce all the time. If you begin to travel all the time, miss important events in your kids' lives, you're damn sure you'd soon have the talk. Which most of the time culminates in having to see a three-figure per hour shrink you have to pay for.

and the stuff you wrote about odetola and his wife is false, the man was already rich when he married her and who told you they built wealth together, his father was former governor of lagos state who had access to power to get contracts for oil blocks. the company he controls today was built by his father his father and nana does not have any right to any 50% if they divorce today.

Guy some yarning crap. Read up on divorce law. One of their residences is in the UK, their kids grew up there, meaning she can file for divorce in the UK. And the UK as any informed person knows has the most protective (or exploitative) divorce laws on the planet.

Much of Otedola's wealth was acquired after he got married to Nana. He founded Zenon in 2003 which turbocharged him from well-to-do (due to his background) to him currently being wealthy via Forte Oil. Nana will get over $300m if she divorced Otedola in the UK as any self-respecting divorce attorney would advise.

There's a reason why informed wealthy men who move to the UK often have their wives sign comprehensive post-nups.

So in the US, men dont threaten their wives, FWB and girl friends and dont send them packing.. i hope you know what you are saying, they do that also.. i read about men driving their wives, GF or FWB back to her parent house or her house, pls nothing is perfect in america.

Read my post intently and do your research. It's your kind that fail to understand the legal ramifications of potential actions and then when you head over there you get f*cked over if a woman chooses to be vindictive.

I'd give you an example so you know you're out of your depth on this. For example under California tenancy laws, a guest who stays for more than 2 weeks within a 6 months period is a tenant regardless of whether s/he contributed to rent or not.

I'd quote an excerpt from a California legal advice site:

What Happens When a Guest Overstays His Welcome?

A true short-term guest is someone who has been on the property for less than three days. Homeowners retain the right to ask guests to leave immediately, at any time, for any reason.

Anyone who has been on the property for more than three days but less than a year, and has not paid rent, can be served a 30 Day Notice to Quit that serves to terminate their Tenancy At Will. Homeowners or apartment-sharers should talk to a lawyer about how to properly file and serve the notice.

Did the guest pay rent at any given point in time? If they live on the property for more than a year, they can still be served a Notice to Quit. Instead, you must grant them a full 60-day notice before you can officially end the relationship.

It’s important to note that homeowners can’t simply change the locks and evict someone who has a Tenancy At Will. This action may be considered an illegal eviction, which carries a penalty of up to $100 per day.

I'm very sure I do more reading in a day than you do in a week and I only talk about stuff I have verifiable knowledge about. It's also why I don't care about labels either. They don't register on my mind, because they're intellectually lazy BS!

So again I tell you, broaden your horizons. And I'd add, stick to commenting about stuff you know about. You must not have an opinion on everything.

Oga a white woman would just as likely drop you like a hot potato if you run into financial difficulties. Say what you know.

And women the world over (regardless of race) marry up, including those who are able to fend for themselves. Hypergamy is a fact of life.

If you think a Nigerian woman is selfish, you clearly haven't sized up the intellect of a Caucasian woman. Their feelings and happiness are the most important things in their lives.

You talking about Nigerian women not understanding pressures and all of that stuff, and you somehow think Caucasian women compromise on family life, having their time, and all of those things Nigerian men take for granted. Why do you think successful people from millionaires to billionaires over there marry and divorce all the time. If you begin to travel all the time, miss important events in your kids' lives, you're damn sure you'd soon have the talk. Which most of the time culminates in having to see a three-figure per hour shrink you have to pay for.



Guy some yarning crap. Read up on divorce law. One of their residences is in the UK, their kids grew up there, meaning she can file for divorce in the UK. And the UK as any informed person knows has the most protective (or exploitative) divorce laws on the planet.

Much of Otedola's wealth was acquired after he got married to Nana. He founded Zenon in 2003 which turbocharged him from well-to-do (due to his background) to him currently being wealthy via Forte Oil. Nana will get over $300m if she divorced Otedola in the UK as any self-respecting divorce attorney would advise.

There's a reason why informed wealthy men who move to the UK often have their wives sign comprehensive post-nups.



Read my post intently and do your research. It's your kind that fail to understand the legal ramifications of potential actions and then when you head over there you get f*cked over if a woman chooses to be vindictive.

I'd give you an example so you know you're out of your depth on this. For example under California tenancy laws, a guest who stays for more than 2 weeks within a 6 months period is a tenant regardless of whether s/he contributed to rent or not.

I'd quote an excerpt from a California legal advice site:



I'm very sure I do more reading in a day than you do in a week and I only talk about stuff I have verifiable knowledge about. It's also why I don't care about labels either. They don't register on my mind, because they're intellectually lazy BS!

you are now writing like you know all nobody can have an opinion even when you write trash down.

the fact is if you read the history of many successful white men, the white women were also instrumental in helping build the business, as i have said earlier, building business isnt a new stuff to them, it something they do compare to us thus lot of support,you never see a corporate and educated white woman that knows the business has potential leave her husband, you can check out the top billionaires today and see if they are still not married to their wives. even most of the successful black men are married to white women in the US.

so you think a millionaire or billionaires will have time for his family and kids?, do you know why many of them need supportive wives and marry good women who can help take care of kids because there is nothing like work and life balance when you get to that status, you are constantly on airplanes traveling to meet customers and investors and attending conference or trying to socialise to get deals. so you think, men of thse status attend their children school meetings or event. that stuff are for average people not men owning multi-millions or billions dollars businesses.

what are you saying about odetola and his wife, even if the kids grow up in the UK, they married in Nigeria, nigeria law will take effects if things goes wrong even if she files for divorce in the UK, also she and odetola must be a habitual residence in the uk or lived for a number of years before she can file for divorce in the uk, also there is jurisdiction, all his properties and asset are in Nigeria, she has no legal jurisdiction to claim any property because the Uk laws stops at the Uk border and for your information she does not have right to any 50% even if the wealth was made by him because he didnt start the business, his father started it, most of the property is held in family trust and protected against divorce.a prime example is Michael Prest who won a divorce court case in the uk by proving to the court that his business was started by his father in Nigeria. or do you think, once people divorce, they just assign 50% of the man's property to the wife, it doesn't work that way. also any property that a man brings into the marriage is usually off-limits to the wife

for the california tenancy law, from my research, you can evict you GF or FWB if their names are not in the lease agreement, if their names are on the lease agreement it is difficult, if their names are not on the lease like the way smart men will do it, If there's no agreement and she doesn't pay rent, you can serve her with a 30 day notice to terminate the tenancy at will.

is everything your father wrote in your mother names worth up to 50 million naira and also which man in his right senses will put all his property in his wife names while excluding himself, most sensible men put their wives and their names in any property they own, making it joint ownership.


if nigerian men are lying cheating scumbags...i guess your father must be among them.
Yes! My father cheated just like most Nigerian men.

And whether 50m or 50b, I don't know u either do u know who you are Chating with. The amount is immaterial. It's the actions motivated by trust that counts.

As for property in wife's name, there are still good marriages out there. As a lawyer I've had clients who all their property is in the name of their wives WITHOUT THE HUSBAND NAME, for a number of reasons like inheritance and family issues. It sounds unbelievable but it's the gospel truth.

so non-Nigerian men don't cheat on their wives, I am sure, you must be comparing us to white men, they are so loyal that they don't cheat but have one of the highest divorce rate of any group.

in my opinion, i cant put my properties in my wife names, i prefer we have joint ownership...anyway, i dont trust people that much.

There is high divorce rate in the West because unlike most Nigerian women who tolerate infidelity and disloyalty, white women don't. Not just white women but westerners in general.

As for trust issues, work on it . There are good people in this world.

Take the recently late OB Lulu Briggs for example, arguably the richest man for the Niger Delta, his entire company is run by His wife and a daughter she had before marrying him.
Meanwhile he has grow up sons but non of them are in charge of his company. It's not juju, it's just that he trust his wife and step daughter more than he's sons.

The problem really is that due to human nature it's impossible to strike a balance. Cultures would always sit close to one of two extremes like a swinging pendulum. Power can intoxicate. So whichever gender sniffs it just keeps running with it until they reach an extreme and things swing to the opposite.

I mean in Georgian England, husbands had the right to hit their wives for discipline. Today, it is socially acceptable for women in general to slap a guy if she feels like it. Swinging pendulum.

-Lord

Hmmmmm

I do not think it is impossible to strike a balance. I think humans are too emotionally lazy to.

And very spot-on as regards civilizations tending towards the extreme.

That's the major error of 3rd wave feminism.

Now, you're just making it a waste of time responding to your verbose replies.

I'd just point out the inaccuracies, because anything else is simply not worth the time or effort.

you never see a corporate and educated white woman that knows the business has potential leave her husband

That's factually incorrect. NEVER? Really?!

you can check out the top billionaires today and see if they are still not married to their wives

Ditto for our own top Nigerian billionaires and their wives.

because there is nothing like work and life balance when you get to that status,

Dude STFU! And start taking your meds, really you need to.

a prime example is Michael Prest who won a divorce court case in the uk by proving to the court that his business was started by his father in Nigeria.

Do you even fact-check before typing anything? Because simply typing "Michael Prest divorce" into Google throws up results that are very different from the account you're painting. Dude lost his divorce case -- http://venturesafrica.com/billionaire-oil-tycoon-michael-prest-loses-26m-divorce-battle/. That's from March this year.

Since I've trashed your example, can you see how wrong you are?

READ! READ!! READ!!!

STOP TALKING SH*T YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!!! It's becoming infuriating now.

Your entire paragraph California tenancy law only echoes what I've said and you were ignorantly arguing. You can't just kick anyone out without sufficient prior notice, unlike in Nigeria. That's been my point all along. What the hell is going on in that fuzzy mesh of neurons you call a brain?

Seriously, if you quote me with another pile of garbage, I would just strikethrough all of it. Get your sh*t together.
