Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have finalized their divorce.
Although celebrity couples often seem to live charmed lives, they are not immune to common relationship struggles and conflicts.
The marriage between Tom Brady and and Gisele Bündchen has become the most recently publicized example.
The couple shared about their divorce on their individual instagram accounts.
According to a recent Marca article titled “Did Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen sign a prenup amid their imminent divorce?,” the finalization of their divorce has sparked speculation about their wealth.
Especially prominent is the question of whether the couple signed a prenuptial agreement.
Although prenuptial agreements can be beneficial in a variety of circumstances, they are not uncommon for those who generate sizable incomes.
The respective net worths of Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady are rather high and were so even prior to their marriage.
It is likely their attorneys encouraged them to create and sign a prenuptial agreement before their wedding.
Although both have much to lose in a prenuptial agreement, many people are surprised to learn Gisele Bündchen has more wealth than Tom Brady.
As a supermodel, Gisele Bündchen is worth $400 million.
She has generated her wealth through her multiple fashion brands and sponsors.
The her revenue is constant and not capped by a single employer.
Tom Brady is considered the best quarterback of NFL history.
After all, he is the GOAT, right?
Nevertheless, his sources of income are more limited.
Brady basically has a salary from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and also has some sponsors.
In addition to their combined net worth of $650 million, the couple jointly own real estate around the world.
These properties are worth an estimated $26 million.
Within the divorce, the couple has apparently tried to be fair in dividing their assets.
What would have happened if no prenuptial agreement was signed?
In many of these instances, the individual who had greater wealth would be required to divide this amount in half with the spouse.
Although it is likely Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen will not be suffering the ill effects of failing to sign a prenuptial agreement, many people do find themselves in heated battles over finances in divorce.
Even if you are not a celebrity, you and your loved ones may benefit from a prenuptial agreement if your family has wealth, if you have your own income and career established prior to marriage, or if you are divorced and creating a blended family.
What advice do I give my clients in these scenarios?
Love may be blind, but it is best to enter a relationship with both eyes wide open.
