Under the assumptions of the Black & Scholes economy, I derive a pricing formula for European bivariate options where one of the underlyings pays a discrete dividend. While the price can be approximated to any precision, this is computationally costly. Notions of the extension of the approach to a higher number of underlyings are given.
