When two people in love decide to marry each other, it is often with the hopes that it will last forever. Some marriages do and some end in either a separation or a divorce.

Divorce can be quick or it can be complicated, especially when a couple's net worth is in the millions. And without a prenup, it can be a huge pay day for a wife or a husband.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant's wife filed for divorce on Friday after 10 years of marriage. It has been estimated that the player is worth some $360 million, and since the couple didn't sign a prenup, Vanessa Bryant could end up getting half of her husband's wealth, joing the likes of Elin Nordegren.

There are other reports that during their 10-year marriage, Kobe Bryant made $150 million and that Vanessa could end up with about $40 million in settlement.

After a highly-publicized divorce from her ex-husband Tiger Woods, it was reported that model Elin Nordegren would get between $100 million and $750 million in divorce settlement. It is still unknown exactly how much cash Nordegren walked away with, but it is certainly not less than $100 million, according to reports.

With all these heart breaks and estimates of cash outs floating around, start the slideshow to see some of the reported biggest divorce settlements of all time.
