It is very likely that multi billionaire Ms Scott would have been advised by her lawyers to enter into a prenuptial agreement as she married for the second time. Her net worth is estimated to be in the region of $53bn having helped her first husband Jeff Bezos set up Amazon some 25 years ago.
Making a pre-marital agreement (or pre-nuptial agreement) can help you define exactly who owns what going into the marriage or civil partnership and how finances will be arranged if you break up in the future. This can prevent disputes over money and property later on.
