Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Are Already Thinking About Divorce

Say What!? 10

Kim Kardashian & Kanye WestWow. That sure didn't take long. Just a few days after they got engaged in front of a stadium full of people in San Francisco, the news comes that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will sign a prenuptial agreement, taking all of the spontaneity and romance straight out of the big "surprise" proposal.

They'll supposedly separate their respective assets, but also have a joint account to help maintain their lavish lifestyle.

And yes, they're totally in love and really think this marriage is going to stand the test of time, but apparently they also believe a prenup is a good idea -- which has to mean they each have a little sliver of doubt that they'll stay together for the long haul.

Oh come on -- why on earth would they be so bold as to sign a prenup if they didn't think there was a chance they'll go their separate ways someday?

The whole point of signing a prenup is to make sure you don't get screwed out of all your cash should things go in the crapper -- but if you think splitting up is even a remote possibility, what's the point of getting married in the first place?

This may sound extreme, but signing a prenup is almost like starting the divorce process before you even walk down the aisle -- especially for celeb types.

Based on Kim's marital history, I guess we shouldn't be all that shocked that she wants to make sure she's protected if things with Kanye turn sour. But you'd also think that after the mess she endured with Kris Humphries, she'd be so sure about her next marriage being forever that she'd refuse to sign a prenup because she never plans on getting divorced.

Sigh. It's such a shame to see Kim and Kanye kick things off on kind of a negative note, but maybe they'll surprise us and will never actually see that prenup again after signing it.

One can hope.

Did you sign a prenup before getting married? If not, would you ever sign one?

You're an idiot. Not signing a pre nup when yoirw rich is about the dumbest thing you can do. Even if YOU have no intention of leaving, you can't control or predict what your partner will do.and of course they'll get divorced. Many people do and celebrites almost never stay married.

I'd sign one, hell! I'd demand one.

I love my other half dearly but uhm nawh WE WANT PRENUP!

I believe that it's the right thing to do. It's all lovey dovey until somebody screws up or it's not working.

As an attorney, I would recommedn a prenuptial agreement to anyone who has significant assets, which both of these people do. It's not romantic, it's practical, and I think most people need to be more practical. What' the saying? Hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Yeah, that's what a prenup is. Preparing for the worst.

When someone or both people are worth a lot of money, it's not a bad idea to have a prenup. I don't think many people "plan" to get divorced, but it does happen.

We had no pre nup. Was married 42 years and then my husband passed away. Yes I would sign a pre nup. The woman could put a few things in it that she wants included.  Believe me Kims mom willl make sure she has a pre nup. Say what you want about Kris, but she is a business woman.

This article is insulting - any logical, intelligent and rational person - not matter their current assets, should sign a pre-nup (as I recently did before I got married). To not is foolish, you have no way of predicting the future and while of course my husband and I have no plans to separate, at least our separate assets are protected.

I think both parties should have a Pre-nup, especially when one or both is well off.  It would make things a lot easier if they did get divorced.  Just because they have one doesn't mean the have one foot out the door.  They are protecting themselves, their assets, and their child.  Marriage is a contract, and is is silly to enter into any agreement without legal counsel.

What absolute stupidness. A prenupt has nothing to do with wanting a divorce.

Ridiculous. Pre-nups are for smart people in love who never want to go through the horrible process of fighting it out for what's mine if things go sour. They can protect the coupe's friendship by avoiding all that vicious fighting and since divorce is statistically possible-- no reason not to be smart and loving about money from the start to prevent hurt feelings. No matter what they will always both have tons of money!
