    That says it all then. I will trust the opinion of someone who is qualified and practises over yours.

    That is actually a common misconception. Although they can be overturned it is only in the case that they are "unfair" when pursuing an improved settlement.

    I did a bit of browsing a while back on pre nups and pretty much every site i visited concluded they are worthless and unenforcable.

    Better to have one than not. It is often that having children will make the process more complicated and result in the pre nup being throw out.

    There are other ways to protect your assets, such as trusts.

    Yeah that's an interesting one that people have tried to use. I don't actually study family law so I don't know too much about it, my knowledge of it comes from helping a few friends with revision

    The only reason I know is because it came up in one my tax modules and I used to work at a large law firm.

    Divorce has fallen into the trend in law to make outcomes harsher on men and more favourable for women without real intelligible basis other than to try and rectify a perceived societal inequality

    We have no fault divorce now. If we brought back fault then all these cheating whores (statistics show that today's women are as likely to cheat as men but divorce is filed by almost 70% women) would not get a penny and marriages would last if the husband forgave them or they knew they'd get nothing after doing it.
    I never said that no fault divorce doesn't exist. I'm saying it's not going to be an effective deterrent and frankly it isn't.

    You sound very bitter about marriage, no one is going to hold a gun to your head to get married, if you want to keep your precious assets then don't get married, simples. I see men complaining all the time about marriage being unfair, yes it is unfair I agree. But a lot of you still keep getting married for some reason and why is that? NOBODY is thinking about getting divorced when they get married. It's like saying prison is a deterrent against crime. No one is thinking they're going to get caught are they?

    I'm not bitter about divorce myself, I do believe that pair bonding through marriage is an overall benefit to both my own self interest and society. That said I think its very important to find a woman who does not display inferior traits like disloyalty.

    yes but I'm not stupid. Things don't always work out even if you want them to. No woman expects their long term partner to become physically abusive, but that doesn't mean it is their fault for choosing that partner if it becomes an abusive relationship down the line.

    This sounds a lot like victim blaming

But they may find themselves in that situation without intending it to happen.

    Maybe it is
