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?
