Debate This + Poll: Are Pre-Nuptial Agreements Hot Or Not?

Pre-nuptial agreements have become very commonplace in modern marriages, and the types of pre-nups run the gamut. Catherine Zeta-Jones supposedly has a clause in her pre-nup with Michael Douglas that she gets a couple million dollars if he cheats. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have a pre-nup which supposedly pays her for every year of their marriage. Many pre-nups state in advance who gets what belongings and property in the event of divorce — most are there to cover the butt of one wealthy spouse incase their soon to be ex decides to take them for house and home. Additionally, plenty of pre-nups are instated if one member of the couples comes from money — I know of one guy who’s grandmother made it a necessity that he get a pre-nup if he wanted access to his inheritance. I’ve been thinking about pre-nups a bit lately because I’m getting married. We’re not having a pre-nup, but it still has made me think about what drives couples to get them.

Pre-Nups For Bridemaids

An article in the Telegraph (U.K.) says that one in five brides-to-be is so concerned that her bridesmaids won’t be up to snuff on the big day that she would ask them to sign written “pre-nuptial agreements”, according to a new poll, while 48 per cent said they would fire a bridesmaid who failed to stick to the rules. So what exactly are these rules? Gaining any weight before the wedding and getting pregnant are among the no-no’s, because everyone knows that a wedding day is the bride’s big day and no one, NO ONE, will steal her thunder or make the ceremony a fat fest! Honestly, though, I am confused. I thought bride’s liked their bridesmaids to be a lil’ on the dumpy side so that they stood out as the hottest chick there in comparison? Isn’t that the basis for hideous bridesmaids’ dresses? Who cares if your cousin Sue puts on 10lbs because she’s depressed and lonely? I’m kidding. My bridesmaids, should I decide to inflict the cost of the honor upon any of my friends, can be any size they want and I’ll even make sure to pick out totally cute dresses for them — so long as they plan a killer bachelorette party.
