Becoming the best version of yourself

Do You Now Have To Get Everything In Writing?

on March 13, 2013

I’m glad that “back in the day”, when I got married, I didn’t even know what a “pre-nup” was.  It would have been just one more thing to worry about.  These days, especially in the case of second marriages between people of a certain “advanced” age – it’s the norm.  So what would you do if your “intended” suddenly popped up with the demand to sign a pre-nup just mere days before the wedding?  I’m still trying to figure out how a “pre-nup” doesn’t imply that your marriage is not going to work out!

I thought this article was interesting because evidently this woman went to court and got the pre-nup thrown out.  My guess is there will be appeals and she’ll be tied up in court for a very long time.  We talk about the family law courts and divorce attorneys in my DRG (Divorce Recovery Group) quite a lot and from what I hear, no one seems to feel there is justice or impartiality any more.  Attorneys fees are way out of kilter and judges seem to be able to overlook certain aspects of the law without much challenge.  You can be right, but lack the funds to hire someone to make it happen.

Most marriages are not lasting, and pre-nups are not ironclad.   What to do, you wonder?  After reading this article I glanced at the posting comments and am sad to report that most seemed to question why anyone would even get married anymore.  Is that what we’ve come to?  Give it a read and let me know what you think.
