Oklahoma ruling awards almost $1 billion in divorce settlement

One of the most hotly contested issues in any divorce case is the division of assets. Understandably, both parties want to walk away with a significant portion of the marital assets, and there is often much debate over how much each spouse deserves based on their contribution to the marriage.
