True financial wealth is measured in millions of dollars rather than thousands, and Australia’s mega-rich live by some simple rules that are vastly different than the rest of us.
David Wilson reporter for News.com.au interviewed Certified Financial Planner Peter Horsfield of SmartAdvice who say's "another way tycoons stayed flush, was through avoiding divorce by taking care of their spouses"..

“Did you know that divorce is the fastest way to lose half or more of your wealth?” Mr Horsfield said.

• Recycle your savings into investments.
