Mail-Order Bride Magnates Enter Messy Divorce


We never turn down a story about a marriage between relationship industry professionals dissolving, but it's not often these stories come with a tidy lesson about online security. The husband-and-wife co-founders of Dream Marriage — an "online international dating service" with excellent marks on mail-order bride review sites — make a great case for never, ever sharing your password, kids. Not even if you've been married for a decade and built your Ukrainian/Russian matchmaking service together from the ground up. According to Courthouse News, Nevadan Ilia N. Zavialov is suing estranged wife Anastasia Popova for allegedly draining $1.2 million from Dream Marriage, $740,000 of it in cash. He says she "never fully and timely communicated" her wish to end the marriage and instead changed the password on their PayPal account and diverted all accounts receivable to accounts he couldn't access.
