Blinded by Love

Howard started off the show saying he was surprised Ross Zapin didn’t sign a pre-nup before he got married last weekend. He noted Ross’ wife, Melissa, is a great woman, but that most relationships end up going south at some point. Howard estimated that with his apartment in Manhattan, house in the Hamptons and other assets, Ross’ liquidated net worth was high enough that he should be concerned. However, he said if Ross gets divorced, Melissa will get at least half of that amount, even though she didn’t bring any money into the marriage. Howard said he tried to convince Ross to get a pre-nup, but he was too blinded by love to heed his advice.
