How Depp are your/their pockets?

It is highly unlikely the majority of us will ever amass a personal wealth that is comparable to that of Johnny Depp however, each couple will have a value that is unique to them. Should the relationship breakdown, for whatever reason, then there will be the need for the assets of the relationship to be divided between the parties.
