Divorce is costly, and ensuring that the estranged spouse continues to live the same lifestyle as before the break-up can eat into your pocket, a Johannesburg banking executive has discovered.

The husband, identified in a Johannesburg High Court judgment as Mr JC, will have to pay his wife more than R2 million come October 1.

He will then have to pay at least R88 000 a month towards his wife’s maintenance and that of his two children, apart from school fees and other expenses. This is pending the conclusion of the divorce, when it will again be calculated what his wife and children are entitled to.

A relative had to pay his ex R15K a month for "holidays" because it was "the lifestyle that she had become accustomed to". And that is over and above the monthly school and child support ect.
