Great advice from a divorce lawyer

Recommended Posts

A young man should never get married until he is absolutely sure that he can afford the divorce!

Amen, brother! Married 42 years to a great woman but paid dearly for my son's divorce!

They say divorce is so expensive because it is worth the cost. I hope I never have to find out if that is true.

It is a true statement in my case. But it's one of those things it takes years to recoup from. 

i used to tell friends the next time I wanted to get married, I was going to find a woman I did not like buy her a house.

Then I met Miss Di . It's been a good 25 years.

So why marrying at all? For "love"? For saving taxes? For a stupid "the most wonderful day in your life" moment (or two, or three, or...)? For traditional reasons? Come on... :lol:

My 1st marriage years ago was horrible, we had big problems from the start! As an example we had a Dalmatian dog that stayed in the backyard, one day when I got home from work the dog had tried to jump the chain link fence and I found him hanging from the fence.  So I always say my 1st marriage was so bad my dog hung himself.  True story but this marriage has lasted 36 wonderful years and the good Lord willing it will last numerous more.  As I have always said there is nothing better than a good marriage and nothing worse than a bad one. I’ve had both!

There's a cynical joke in there; the first lasted 3 years, the second lasted 6 years, the third lasted 9 years and the fourth has lasted 12 years

I am about to be 35 this december. Single right now.

How i see it and I would only want to get married once, if it does not work out. I will not get married again.

Also, i would want my SO to sign prenup.

Any advise for me?

I love being married, it's been 15 years and I love it as much as day 1.

That happens too, occasionally.

I asked my wife what she wanted for her birthday. She said "a divorce". 

 

I told her that I wasn't planning on spending that much....

when the time comes and if you still feel you need a prenup then dont do it, marriage is about life , love , and sharing everything good and bad. Been together over 40 years lived together about 7, 6 kids, before we tied the knot and it is the greatest thing i have ever accomplished .

Happiness here as well. No, not every day, but on balance. Celebrated 20 years last month and although Covid meant we missed out on the cruise we had long contemplated for our 20th, instead the kids made us dinner and we enjoyed an evening together as a family. Life is far from perfect, but it’s good.

I'm with Chuck on this one - if you still think you need a prenup when the time comes, maybe the *right* time hasn’t come after all.
