A Prenuptial Agreement as defined in legal terms is: a written contract between two people who are about to marry, setting out the terms of possession of assets, treatment of future earnings, control of the property of each, and potential division if the marriage is later dissolved.
Breaking down the reality behind the Prenup ~ My Spin:
Although wise in narrow and limited cases a prenup has a way of rubbing even the most loving person the wrong way. A prenup says so much more than what is written on paper.
It says that in the event the marriage ends up in divorce:
He/she does not trust that you will be fair.
He/she feels you are a poor player.
He/she does not believe in you.
He/she needs to guard himself/herself from you.
He/she has issues sharing with you.
He/she values possessions over you.
He/she doesn’t believe you will amount to a thing.
He/she needs to protect himself/herself from what you are capable of doing.
He/she does not want to see you get your fair share.
He/she needs to be extra, extra secure.
When love just isn't enough ;-)
