    He should have known better than to marry a drop dead gorgeous woman many years his junior. They'll break your heart every time.

    All is fair in love
    Love's a crazy game
    Two people vow to stay
    In love as one they say
    But all is changed with time
    The future none can see
    The road you leave behind
    Ahead lies mystery
    But all is fair in love
    I had to go away
    A writer takes his pen
    To write the words again
    That all in love is fair

    All of fate's a chance
    It's either good or bad
    I tossed my coin to say
    In love with me you'd stay
    But all in war is so cold
    You either win or lose
    When all is put away
    The losing side I'll play
    But all is fair in love
    I should have never left your side
    A writer takes his pen
    To write the words again
    That all in love is fair

    A writer takes his pen
    To write the words again
    That all in love is fair

    We have no idea what was happening between them. Affair, sounds like... no way of knowing... and not any of my business...

    Too true!! Courts are increasingly overiding wills and constests get a victory. The lawyer for his estate should argue strongly what Ric wrote in due consideration of their breakup and REALLY go to town about her assets.

    I don't follow celebrity news like I should, so I know little about them. I knew they were married for a long time, but didn't know anything about a divorce. Nothing shocking about that. It is the word "abandonment" that jolted me; it seems so bitter. Is it a legal term? In my life, I have never heard of anyone I know being "abandoned." They may feel angry, used, tricked, betrayed, but abandoned?

    Again, for me money and the will are not newsworthy to me--normal stuff. I'm just stuck on the word abandoned. Sends shivers down my spine.

    Yes, abandonment is a legal term and not as dire as its common connotation.

    I imagine the six kids and other 2 ex wives will weigh in some how.

    Apparently, they were still close, as she is the person who discovered he was dead.

    Musicians at that level tend to be self centered and you have only his word that she "abandoned" him. Her actions prove otherwise and it sounds like she was there for him, including his children. Usually when a marriage breaks up, there's usually an ongoing pattern of behavior behind it that's tolerated until it can't be any longer; he may have had more to do with the break up than she did. Clearly, she wasn't in it for the money....

    My ex wife won't get anything of mine when I die either. But, I won't make the news so I won't be judged.

    It's a legal term having to do with divorce. Basically it means one party left (moved out) the other party and it wasn't a mutually agreed upon situation.
