"So Kim Kardashian is getting a divorce, 72 days after a wedding that is variously reported to have cost $10 million or more. Just to put that in perspective, that sum could have built 200 schools in poor countries around the world for kids who desperately want an education. Then Kardashian could have helped transform the world, not just entertain it. And the schools would have lasted incomparably longer than her marriage."
I don’t want to say anything about how she handled her marriage, cuz that part’s really none of my business. But I do think that when very wealthy people want to spend gobs of money on something superficial, that they should cut their budget in half and donate the other half.
