The question I chose to ask today is one that has always boggled my mind.
These days, people go into marriages with prerequisite of what they stand to gain if it doesn’t work. For example, those couple who insist on using legal backing to protect their assets, so that they won’t be left with nothing in case there’s a break-up or divorce.
Or say, wives who secretly create separate personal savings account on the side, without their man’s knowledge of the money. Some wives even go ahead to acquire properties without their husband’s consent. So that in case the marriage fails, they will have something to fall back to.
The most common is, men who insist on ‘testing’ the woman they intend marrying, to ascertain if she’s fertile or sexually good.
People have their reasons for these prerequisite. Though I wonder, if you can’t trust your mate why marry them? Cos it’s like they already know there could be a problem, it’s like they know the marriage may not last, that’s why people don’t take chances.
Is it wise to have some useful back-up plan before getting married or while married? Or just walk into it straight up without fears and with a positive mindset?
