Pre-Marital Agreements

Posted by Budedm on Tuesday, March 13, 2007

I am not old, but I guess I am old fashioned. I do not believe in pre-maritals because I think that if you feel you need one, then you already know that this is not the right person for you to marry. To me, these agreements say "Let's plan on divorce at some point. If we stay together, fine, but let's plan for a divorce just in case." And even though the stated reason for these agreements is to protect ones possesions "in case of divorce", I believe they sometimes "cause divorce" because all the paperwork is already done. It is much easier to simply get a divorce instead of working out the difficulties in the marriage. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

Bud:  Personally, I agree with you.  I think getting married is a leap of faith, and if you don't have faith in it.... well, don't leap.  That said, I am a strong proponent of marriage, and I think that pre-nups enable some people to get married that otherwise would not.  So I think they should be an option available for some.  One example that is very far from my experience, but makes sense, is when a family business or family fortune is at stake.  But on a personal level, I am with you.

Miz Jeeter and I have been married for over thirty one years.  If I hadn't trusted her, I wouldn't have married her.  I would do it again, without a pre nup this time, either.

Without her, I might be dead by now and if not, I sure wouldn't have the things I have.

I've been married 4 times. I've been left with nothing 3 times. I've never filed for divorce, and I've never left anyone. But when it came time to be left...material stuff meant nothing and I said take it all. Those times of peace and nothing were priceless, and some of the happiest times of my life. Just my clothes and guitar.

Your scaring me bud... even thinking about this subject 3 years ago... and then that latest thread on about giving up the banjo. Good luck to you. If all else fails, pray.

Yeah, it seems you of all people could have really benefited from one. Just one sentence would do: You plant yer flowers, I'll play my banjo.

I figure when I got married I do ment I do, my bride may kick me out of the house one day, if she does she can have it all, I'll get new stuff, more banjos and a another deer lease, more guns and probably more woodworking tools
