"52 percent of the respondents said more women are requesting the agreements." I wonder what percentage of those are gold diggers?

Guys, when she says she loves you, keep your hand on your wallet. Next thing you know you're toiling away at work, and she's quit her job and now spends the days watching TV, shopping, and going to lunch with the girls.

It's great to do all that talking I did it. Sometime people lie and don't follow the agreement. Then get nasty when getting divorced. Woman are not the only gold diggers, men are too. I made more and had more when I got married and when I got divorced they gave him 1/2 my retirement and I didnt get any of his. All because I made more money. No one said life is fair.

Chris Rock already had all this information in his routine 10 years ago.

I had a prenup in place before I remarried, as I had/have more than he did. When I divorced HIM, the attorney's said prenup's are only as good as the paper theyre written on. I owned my house for 15 years before we got married, and also paid for all maintanance and remodelling, and kept all receipts, and checks written from MY account associated with those expenditures. At the time of our divorce, TRIED to get half of my house and assets. The Judge told me, I was wise to have saved everything proving HIS money, or skills, hadnt been used in any way. All in all, he was a renter with benefits. I WON! It isnt only SOME women that are gold diggers, there are plenty of men out there looking for a free ride too! Once a couple joins their money together, youre sunk.
