Would You Sign A Prenup
The other day on Twitter, one of my followers @InTheMidstOfHer asked me if I would sign a prenup. My answer was no. Last night on The Arsenio Hall Show, Gabrielle Union told Arsenio that this time around, the difference between her first marriage and upcoming marriage to Dwyane Wade will be a prenup. Here’s what she said;
For this marriage, the biggest difference between this marriage and the last marriage will be a prenup. At my insistence!” “When you have your own stuff you don’t have to worry about anyone else’s stuff. So everyone should go into the relationship, knowing I’m here for you and you’re here for me and the truth is, I’ve never seen Dwyane balance a checkbook so I’ve got to protect my stuff. Its the wave of the future, protecting your stuff.
No More Your Stuff And My Stuff
There’s too much of his stuff and her stuff in that conversation. Marriage is our stuff. There’s no more your stuff and my stuff. We’re one! People say you have to protect your stuff in marriage because you just never know but here’s what I want to know, why would you marry someone you felt you had to protect your stuff from?
God Is My Source Not My Husband
The other argument is what happens if you get divorced and he takes everything? Here’s what I have to say about that, God took care of me before marriage, he will take care of me in marriage when I get married and he will continue to take care of me God forbid my marriage dissolves. God is my source not my husband. Furthermore, I don’t want to discuss my end when I should be focused on my beginning.
Something to think about…
What say you? Would you sing a prenup? Why? Why not?
