Radio discussion about pre-nuptial contracts: a listener called in saying that “pre-nuptial contracts don’t work because at the end everything is contested!” (love english humor!). But another listener called in saying that wedding contracts should not be for life but only for five years. No joke, he was serious. Shebang – what a marvellous idea! Gosh, how come no one ever though about this one before. As I never wanted to get married, and am not married, this to me would be the perfect solution. After five years, if both parts would wish, the “contract” could be extended.
It would only rip benefits, I thought, no more contested divorces and fat divorce fees (one doesn’t want to divorce, the other just waits for the contract to finish); and a possibility of a party every five years?
I think this is so sad, because the bride seems to pay more attention to her newly found “friends” than to the groom.
