Those who do not know the value of back-breaking hard work to gain wealth will never understand the importance of a prenuptial agreement.
When I was a younger lawyer, I used to tell as much of my friends and relatives that they consider a prenuptial agreement before marrying. Not a single one took my advice. Instead, I heard of all the cliched reasons why they don’t need it.
From “it’s only for the rich,” “I would never be marrying if I don’t trust my fiancée,” to “I love him/her.” I’ve heard every version that I can come up with a small booklet compilation.
So, I no longer volunteer giving that advice.
As I grew older and meet new people in my life, particularly good quality people who are an inspiration as shown by their share of successes, I found it curious how easy and natural it was for them to talk openly about the importance of a prenuptial agreement.
That’s how it slowly dawned on me that no matter how much you tell people about the advantageous of having a prenuptial agreement, and that it has nothing to do with a couple’s trust and love for another, it will never be understood by those who do not know the value of back-breaking hard work to gain wealth.
The people who know the value of a prenuptial agreement are those who understood the impact it has on the lives (or should I stay lifestyles) that they have created through the years.
