As stated in the law in Washington state,where "any assets accumulated during the marriage are communal and divided 50-50 if the marriage ends".According to this law MacKenzie Bezos could become world's richest woman.

MacKenzie married Jeff Bezos in 1993 and 25 years after their marriage the couple has decided to move apart. Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos announced their plans to divorce on 9th JanuaryAccording to CNN, MacKenzie would receive half of husband's wealth.This could value MacKenzie at about $68.9 billion, making her the richest woman,the title is currently held by Francoise Bettencourt Meyers

She would join her former husband in the top billionaires list edging out Amancio Ortego(valued at $61.4 billion), to slide into fifth place. She would follow Bill Gates, Bernard Arnault, Warren Buffett and Jeff Bezos.

What will Jeff's wealth be after divorce


Given that Amazon was launched in year 1994, a year after their marriage, Jeff's subsequent profits are on the table. This means that "all the assets acquired during the marriage will be split equally".


iven that Amazon was launched in year 1994, a year after their marriage, Jeff's subsequent profits are on the table.


This will bring down Jeff Bezos from top position to the fourth position,making Microsoft founder Bill Gates the richest person again.In the equal division of assets "Jeff will have to sell some of his stocks in Amazon".It would therefore dilute his control of the company.
