Couples Are Now Signing Dating Prenups
I totally understand that it's good to be honest and lay out exactly what you want and don't want out of a new relationship. But, is this really the right way?
Well, apparently, some couples have started signing 'dating prenups.' This according to the New York Post. A dating prenup is where they, basically, each lay out their DEMANDS for the relationship, what they want, what they don't want, and, I guess, who gets to keep the stuff if they break up.
It's not 100% clear if the couples are actually going to a lawyer and making the contract binding, or if it's just something you put together yourself early on in the relationship.
But either way, do you really need one?
One relationship expert says, quote, 'We expect our partners to read our minds [so] it seems unromantic, but you can rely on the prenup when you're angry, emotional, or projecting baggage to guide you through those times.'
Well, if the dating prenup works, I can only imagine what the marital one will look like.
