Sue Decker's husband not seeking alimony in divorce

At times I pity Sue Decker, Yahoo's embattled president. She disappeared from sight after Microsoft bid $44.6 billion for Yahoo. Her roadshow to win back investors to an independent Yahoo flopped. She's been reduced to begging her new Microsoft overlords for a job. And now, even husband Michael Dovey, whom she's divorcing, has told her he doesn't want any help from her. Court records obtained by the Wall Street Journal show that he's not seeking alimony. Surely a matter of pride over pragmatism: At a dinner party, Dovey told one tablemate that he didn't work, not because Decker supported him but because he was independently wealthy.

Yahoo president Sue Decker has filed for divorce from her husband Michael Dovey, according to records in the Marin County Superior Court. The couple met when both were attending Harvard Business School, and have three childen, the youngest of whom was born in 2002. This will surely make things awkward for Yahoo CFO Blake Jorgensen, who was best man at Decker and Dovey's wedding.
