Kourtney Kardashian's marriage to Scott Disick may already be on the rocks before it has even started. According to some rumors, Kardashian is already putting the kibosh on his big spending or, at least, asking him to sign a prenup. Smart girl given these same sources claim he spends a whole lot of cash on frivolous things.
On the other hand, a prenup is a very bad sign.
Don't get me wrong. I totally think it's the right thing to do. It's the smart thing to do and clearly the best thing to do. But it does seem like the vast majority of those who get these things end up divorced. It makes sense.
As someone who got married at 25 without a dime to my name (and my husband was the same), signing a prenup would have been ludicrous. But I do know a few people who have signed them and they were very fraught.
In most cases, the one being asked to sign feels like he or she is going into a marriage that is already under scrutiny. There is a level of distrust that just feels wrong. Sure, it may be the smartest, best way to protect assets, but love matters more, no?
If you are marrying someone and ALREADY considering divorce and what would happen to the moola, then you are in trouble. It would be so much better to simply marry someone you trust.
Wishful thinking in Hollywood, I suppose. Obviously I can't argue against prenuptial agreements. They make sense. They should happen.
I just think it's sad that we live in a world where they exist. Talk about getting married for the wrong reasons. Love should be the only emotion one feels when walking down the aisle. Sure, nerves are OK, too, but nerves about the right things -- how will the wedding go? How will I say those vows in front of all those people? Etc. If you are nervous about whether or not your fiance will spend your money, maybe you should rethink the walk down the aisle.
Live together. It might be cheaper for you all in the long run.
Do you believe in prenups?
