    All the way yes. Why the hell should the woman get half of my **** if we got divorced even if she caused the divorce.

    Yay, for both parties if you have assets to protect, it's not about trust it's about trying to keep things as clean as possible if it comes down to divorce, it's not like you're anticipating breaking up, you're just being careful and frankly I'd want my partner to be sensible

    I don't intend to marry, but if I am tricked into agreeing to it I pray to the Olmec Dragon that I do have one so she can't take - and you need to think of Eddie Murphy's famous stand up here - HALF!

    Divorce laws in the West are a joke tbh.

    You often hear about cases where the wife cheats on the husband, she then files for divorce when she's found out, and yet she still ends up with half his stuff. Ridiculous

    If you a man you need to get a prenup, because same woman that's telling you now you're the best thing that's ever happened to her, is the same woman that's gonna be telling you to give her half your chit 4 - 7 years from now.

    No, you're just prepared for the possibility which is there regardless of how strong you are as a couple, especially now when the divorce rate is 1 in 2 couples

    Its necessary. Women are very good at deception, they will lower your credit rating before you even know it or force you to pay child support and be the baby daddy.

    Isn't that abit pessimistic if you're already starting the marriage with what ifs. I know some people like to prepare for the worst,especially as marriage is costly

    If you're going into marriage with doubts and what ifs or just incases, you're already breaking vows that you made before God....don't get married.

    I can't speak for anybody else, but for me it would seem entering a marriage with doubts is a natural response to one of the biggest commitments you'll make in your life. Some people don't make vows before God, though
