Thinking about getting divorced (for a first, second or third time)? When it comes time to divide assets, which are you more willing to take your ex to court over- kids or dog? According to a new study- by the people who brought you the statistic that 87% of adulterous financial services employees cheat with colleagues- the majority of divorcing bankers could take the kids or leave them but really want that damn dog.

Here are a few other details 1,300 respondents interviewed over the phone shared:

68.3% of male bankers said they had been divorced at least once, 23.7% twice, and 3.1% three times or more

92.5% of divorced male bankers’ second wives were younger than their first wife

The average divorce settlement cost them £327,356 ($540,726), with the biggest single asset of the marriage being equity in the matrimonal home

7.3% said that they left home for another woman, although only 5.5% of these male bankers ended up in a long term relationship (defined as over 2 years) with the woman concerned

23.4% said that they ideally wanted custody of the children from the marriage

67.3% said that they wanted custody of the family dog

37.1% of female bankers said that they had been divorced at least once, 12.1% twice, and 0.4% three times or more

The average divorce settlement cost them £184,279 ($304,392), with the biggest single asset of the marriage being equity in the matrimonal home

9.6% of female bankers said that they got divorced because they were fed up bringing in the majority of the household income, and expeced to be the main carer for the children too

4.1% said that they their marriage broke up over another man, and 32.6% of these female bankers ended up in a long term relationship (defined as over 2 years) with the man concerned

    sounds about right.

    I find fault with a long-term relationship being defined as over 2 years.  I think 4 weeks is more than enough quality time needed to realize your whore-stress isn’t that much fun at eight in the morning, either.

    The moral: Two-thirds of male bankers will pay half a million to be rid of one bitch and are willing to fight tooth-and-nail to get another back.

    The banker’s wife meets him at the front door and says, “All you do is work and talk about money anymore.  I want a divorce!’”

    The banker pleads, “Oh please baby, I’m sorry…tell me what you want and I’ll get it for you.  Nothing is too good for you.  How about a new remodel for the home?”  She shakes her head “no”.  

    “How about a 2-week cruise?”.  Again, she shakes her head “no”.

    The banker, getting alarmed, says, “OK, how about a new Honda van or maid service”.  His wife gets angrier and shouts, “No!” through clenched teeth.

    “Honey, I’ll get us a beach hous…how about that??” whines the banker.  Wife screams, “No, no, no!!!  I want a divorce!!”

    Banker says, “Well, I wasn’t planning on spending that much……”
