Depends on the wife, if she was a do nothing gold digging pariah then definitely and not because of the money either.
On the other hand if she was an equal partner in the marriage whether perusing her own career or a homemaker taking care of the kids then he should sit in jail.
If he lost in investments he should be able to prove that?
Edit: I wonder if anyone in that position ever just went to the casino and blew it all?
