Kourtney Kardashian's Pre-Nup Demands Are a Sign of Bad Things to Come With Scott

Eye Roll 6

prenup KardashianKourtney 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?

I think for certain people it's a smart way to go. Unfortunately even if they get married for the right reason, people can still have nasty traits such as greed. I'm sure we've all seen examples of that in our not rich friends let alone the celeb tabloid stories.

I would consider her an idiot if she DIDN'T get one... I've only seen tiny glimpses of the man and question why in the world she keeps him around. *sigh*

Part of my religion is a marriage contract.

I think it's smart, not sad at all.

I absolutely do. After having gone through my divorce, I know that if I had had anything worth anything (savings, inheritance, property, ANYTHING) my ex would have tried to take it all. When we married, I obviously thought it would last forever and I NEVER could have imagined him turning out how he has. So if I have anything valuable (whether it be money, or assets) in the future and i do re-marry, I would consider a prenup. As of right now if I were to re-marry, I have no reason for a pre-nup LOL but I do think they are an absolute necessity under certain circumstances.


Also - I would have NO problem signing a pre-nup myself. IF (huge IF) I ever re-marry, I obviously don't want to end up divorced again. But I would have no issues whatsoever about signing a pre-nup. In my opinion, people who refuse to sign a pre-nup usually DO want whatever the other person has and aren't going into the marriage solely for love. There may be some exceptions to this, but still.

All het assets are jointly owner with siblings and her mom. Its absolutely smart and ncessary. I own a business with my father and my husband has a contract after saying he would not seek reward from the businsss. That his brothers can not have claim to it if something happened to both of us etc

I am absolutely against pre-nups. You're entering a marriage with the mindset that divorce is an option? I get it, some relationships don't last forever, but why waste money on a wedding and then divorce when you could wait for the person you actually feel you want and could spend the rest of your life with?
