    Didn't I hear, today, that Mel was worth approximately a billion or, probably, more? I don't think I'd settle for "a couple of million" either!

    Hang tough, Mrs. Mel!!!

    I heard the mention of the "B" (as in billion) word on one of the news shows last night.

    900 million is what I heard. Pretty close to the billion mark. They own several homes (mansions) including an island somewhere. Seven children but only one who is still a minor. No pre-nup and from what I gather, most of the money was earned during the marriage. She should be getting a pretty hefty sum I'd say.

    That would almost, almost, make it worth having spent 20 years with Mel.

    Otherwise, *shudder*.

    I know other people who have gotten divorced but never bothered with getting an annulment. Guess to them, the idea of never receiving Communion again, etc., was no big deal.

    I know that in my friend's case, her second husband had never been married before and he was a devout Catholic. I think it was really because of his views (wanting to get married in the Church, etc.) that she went for the annulment.

    In Mel's case, since he is such a devout Catholic, I can see where he would want an annulment so that he can still practice his faith.

    I heard that they did not have a prenup so it should be interesting to see how much this divorce is going to cost.
    Sorry, not to offend, but I would not hold this man up as a paragon of any religion, Catholic or not, being able to practice their faith. He is NOT a devout Ctholic to look up to. He's been a womanizer, a racist, a philanderer and a substance abuser. I hope the wife gets her fair share for putting up with such a sad excuse for a human being.

    I used to love Mel, but lost all respect for him. I think she deserves a lion's share. I personally wouldn't have put up w/his schmaltz for more than the 1st time. I deserve more than that, and I think his wife is smart that she finally realized that for herself!

    I think the issue, now, is for them to come to an agreement on when they separated, since that will have to do with how much she is entitled to....although I don't think it should. You're either married, or you're not. Separation has never meant "unmarried" to me.

    So because he's a sinner, that means he shouldn't be held up as a devout Catholic? I don't think that churches are museums of perfect people. I'm not sure what hte point of confession is in the Catholic church if its not the recognition that even the most devoted to their church are sinners.

    But he appears to be an unrepentant sinner. At least for some of those sins. Being devout implies a willingness to learn the lessons taught by your religion. Has Gibson?

    I've always felt that the act of confession just made it ok to be able to sin because afterall, you can confess it and be absolved.

    What I was taught is that we're all sinners, but should learn from our mistakes and try really hard not to make them again. Being absolved everytime I make a mistake wouldn't necessarily make me want to not do it again. And from the reports of his actions over the years, he kept on doing this stuff despite evidence that he knew it was wrong.
