The $ 137 billion split between Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos will be fast and friendly, simply because the couple is so rich.
"Their divorce will be handled just as quickly as a delivery to Amazon," West Coast lawyer, Christopher Melcher, told the Economic Times.
According to divorce lawyers, the bigger the money, the easier the split is.
And while some speculate that the future of Amazon is in danger, sources near the richest man in the world told The Mail on Sunday that Bezos & # 39; 16 percent share in the company & # 39; safe & # 39; is.

Jeff Bezos retains control of the online retail giant, sources say.
& # 39; But last year all this was well arranged. Amazon is not in danger. The divorce settlement is much further than anyone knows, "someone around Besoz & # 39; s tells The Mail on Sunday.
& # 39; Both Jeff and his wife are smart people. He keeps control of Amazon. & # 39;
Bezos and MacKenzie, his 25-year-old woman, announced on Twitter last week that they said goodbye to & # 39; as cherished friends & # 39; and separate & # 39; after a long period of loving research and trial separation.
Lauren Sanchez, the woman in the center of the separation of Jeff Bezos
But within a matter of hours it appeared that Bezos had a relationship with Lauren Sanchez, a 49-year-old former TV anchor that had separated herself from her husband, the Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell, last fall.
The divorce with Bezos is probably the biggest in history. The couple, who married in 1993 shortly before he founded Amazon, is considered to have no marital conditions, which entitle her to half of his assets.
The pair has a range of features, including a $ 32 million home in Washington State, a $ 25 million home in Beverly Hills and a $ 24 million museum that has been converted into Washington DC along with 400,000 acres of land.
Most of his wealth, however, lies in his Amazon shares and there were fears that he would have to sell part of his share, which might have an impact on the value of the online giant.
But the source said: "The majority of Jeff's wealth is stuck in Amazon shares. He will retain control of the company and remain the majority shareholder.
& # 39; The deal is still being worked out because there are so many complex assets, but there is no danger that he loses his majority interest in Amazon. That has been agreed. & # 39;
Meanwhile, a good friend of Mrs. Sanchez insisted that she and Bezos & dolphins & # 39; and intend to marry once their respective divorces have been completed.
The American gossip press The National Enquirer claimed last week that Bezos & # 39; & # 39; cheal & # 39; cheated & # 39; to his 46-year-old wife, with whom he has four children, by starting his relationship with Mrs. Sanchez before she had formally split up. They also published a series of passionate text messages sent by the billionaire to Ms. Sanchez.
Sources near Besoz denied rumors that the future of the company is at risk because of his affair with Sanchez (pictured in December 2016)
But friends of the former TV presenter said the statement was totally unfair and untrue & # 39; was, and added: "Most of what has been written about the relationship of Lauren and Jeff is not true.
They both split in the autumn of their respective partners. Their relationship did not begin until their marriage had ended.
"They knew each other before and there were text messages between them, but text messages do not mean an affair. There was nothing unclear about how this relationship started and there is nothing surly now.
& # 39; Jeff and Lauren are very in love and devoted to each other. They plan their future together. & # 39;
Another friend said: "People are shocked because the (divorce) news only became public this week, but both couples have done this last year. & # 39;
The friend said that Mr. Whitesell and Sanchez have a so-called "bird's nest" arrangement whereby their children stay in the parental home while estranged parents live in turns. Insiders claimed that Ms. Sanchez, a former host country of the popular American shows So You Think You Can Dance? and Extra, & # 39; fought & # 39; to save her marriage with Mr. Whitesell, the chief executive of talent agency William Morris Endeavor, who represents stars such as Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Christian Bale.
The couple married in 2005 and had two young children. She fought to save her marriage for the sake of her children, but unfortunately that was not the case. But the accusations that she deceived her husband just do not make sense, "the source said.
Mr and Mrs Bezos, Mrs Sanchez and Amazon did not respond to requests for comments.
