Irina, wife of Chelsea's owner, Roman Abramovich may get a 'mere' £150 million share of Roman's 11 billion fortune in their divorce settlement. Legal experts said he has saved himself billions by divorcing her in Russia.

He announced that he and former air hostess, Irina, the mother of his five children had agreed to get divorced on a 'consensual basis'. It followed Abramovich, 40, Russia's richest man and one of the world's richest men, being linked to a 24 year old model and Russian socialite, Daria Zhukova.

Unfortunately for Irina, Russian courts are much more favourable to husbands than English ones. Russian law rarely provides for the payment of maintenance while the man is allowed to keep all wealth obtained before the marriage. If Irina had filed for divorce in the UK, she would have gotten at least $1.5 billion but Roman was quicker to have lodged a petition in Russia, preventing the case to be heard in Britain. The two have been married for 15 years.

If my husband was 11 billion pounds rich and I'd been married to him for 15 years, and I'd given him 5 children, and he now wants to leave me for a 24 year old model? No court, be it in Russia, Iran, Irag, Afghanistan or even hell will stop me from getting my fair share of his billions. After giving the best part of my life to him, he has to pass a good share of his money to me...otherwise...hmmm. Anyway, maybe Irina is not as greedy as I am...Good for Roman.

But it's sad when people who have shared so many years together decide they do not want to continue being together...why do things like that happen? Can't they remember how beautiful it once was and hold on to what they once shared? I don't understand divorce. What would make me divorce my husband? If he cheats? Nah! Which man doesn't cheat? How many husbands will you divorce? But if he hits me. I'm gone.

    If he hits me,I will hit him back.But my Mr Somebody is quite a gentleman and would never hit a lady.True word there.."which man doesn't cheat'?Except of course one with the fear of God and the other one that is impotent.just those two,apart from them,all men cheat!
