The First Lady, who is happily married to the US President Donald Trump, may have altered the terms of divorce after entering the White House. The couple, who are very unlikely to separate and have shown no signs of divorcing, may have required added divorce terms following an extensive lifestyle change in the public eye. Jacqueline Newman, a managing partner and divorce litigation specialist, believes Melania would need a security detail, Business Insider reported.
Ms Newman told Business Insider: “Whatever amount of money she was due to receive, my guess is that she’s going to want an increased amount.
“If they were to divorce now or after he’s no longer president, there’s going to be security detail, there’s going to be all sorts of things that are going to be very different for her as a former first lady than if she was just Donald Trump’s wife.”
Melania is also likely to have to keep quiet about her life with Trump, especially their time in Washington.
The President has previously said about the agreements: “It’s a hard, painful, ugly tool. Believe me, there’s nothing fun about it. But there comes a time when you have to say, ‘Darling, I think you’re magnificent, and I care for you deeply, but if things don’t work out, this is what you’re going to get.'”

Trump’s prenup with his second wife, Marla Maples, included harsh terms as he insisted on protecting his money.
Vanity Fair reported Ms Maples wanted $25 million (£18.4 million) but Trump would only give $1 million (£800,000) if they separate within five years.
Trump did suggest his wishes were honoured by Melania however.
He revealed their pre-marital negotiations went smoothly and said “The beautiful thing is that she agrees with it. She knows I have to have that.”
According to Business Insider, if Melania was to leave, a new First Lady would be appointed.
It is believed Ivanka Trump, who is a senior adviser to her father, would take the position.
Previous Presidents who have been single or widowed assigned nieces and daughters to the job.
However, the position is not official within the Trump administration.
