I agree with the prenup, (some) b1tches love to get as much of their ex-husbands property in the event of a divorce, which according to statistics is a 50/50 chance.

Although about 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, that doesn't mean that 50 percent of people who marry will get divorced. Quite a few of those divorces come from people who are on their third or fourth marriage. So that tends to skew the numbers a bit. I suppose the best hedge against divorce would be to marry someone who hasn't divorced before (among other factors).

I think that number is skewed. I've heard it presented as 1 in 2 marriages end in divorce.

What about the people who get married 3 or 4 times? They are leaving many marriages intact to pull the average down to 50%.

Like I said, most marry the wrong person, for the wrong reasons.

I still stand by my "most do it for the wrong reasons, with the wrong person" statement despite the skew.

Ah, burned once, twice shy - got it.

Do you think the term "damaged goods" applies here?

At the end of the day, its whatever works for you two, I have a very purist view on marriage - I think its tossed around way to casually, most people are doing it for the wrong reasons, to the wrong people IMO.

Regardless os statistics, prenup is a very smart way to protect your property that you worked hard for, in the event of a divorce. If she is against it then I guess love is not what she's after ...

are you asking me if I think I am damaged goods? what do you think? do you think I am normal? She wants to be with me and knows I am not going anywhere, but have to protect what I worked for before her. she will receive half of anything frrom here on out. I don;t see myself going broke anytime soon.

I guess I can see how it protects the sh!t you brought into the marriage, and you split everything even from then on out.

I think you are smart guy who lets the man bro attitude prevail a bit much, but I'm a troll myself so I understand.

I see you are not that dumb...At least you're protecting what you worked hard for

My post was just to address the figure Elliot posted. I agree that many (I dunno about "most," but I don't really spend a lot of time thinking about other people's marriages) get married for dumb reasons.
