Is it worth getting a Prenuptial Agreement


Is It Worth Getting A Pre-Nuptial Agreement
Published: 30th October 2014 - Category: Pre-Nuptial Agreements - Author: Lynne Bastow

Nobody wants to see a bride cry but YES it is worth getting a Prenuptial Agreement.

Here’s why:

It is one of the factors that will be taken into account upon divorce.

Is it decisive?

No.

However…

If…

  1. Both parties have been given the opportunity to take legal advice.
  2. Full financial disclosure has taken place.
  3. There has been no fraud or mistake.
  4. It is fair in the circumstance.
  5. There has not been a fundamental change since it was drafted.

Then…

It is likely to be upheld.

It is so unromantic…

My partner will say I do not love him/her if I ask for such a thing…

Here is your reply:

“Darling… I am sure you love me and are not marrying me simply for my money so there is no loss to you in signing this. I love you more than space and this will just prove to little, old insecure me that you love me too. You have no idea how awful it has been being pursued by gold diggers up until now. I am so relieved that we have found each other and our love is real.”

Use your own words but you get my drift…

Nobody gets married with the intention of divorce…

Actually that is not true. Gold diggers do and they are some of the best actors in town.

I knew one decades ago. She was young, attractive, loud and confident. Not drop dead gorgeous but a 7 out of 10. She was dating a very, wealthy man. He was a 3 out of 10 if he was lucky and she had a mean nickname for him. Each time he saw her he bought her a designer handbag. She loved the bags but he thought she loved him. He had just got divorced. He had poured his heart out to her. He had married a beautiful blonde and before they were married she was all over him. On their wedding night she said “Don’t make a marathon of it.” The tale gets worse and he caught her inflagrante and was recovering from a very expensive divorce. What did he do? Console himself with the next one. The only change he had made was the hair colour. It was another sad ending. I wanted to call and warn him but knew he would not believe me.

Don’t let this happen to you. Get a prenup. Call me…
