It's not about "LeaveIttoBeaverVille"; but today's societal view on marriage, which contributes to the 50% divorce rate.Originally Posted by Dom Heffner
For the most part, and generally speaking, it's selfishness by either party that leads to marriage breakup. The commitment part is defined as "me, me, me".
If you are more concerned about protecting your material assets then the realtionship involved, then you'll most likely end up in divorce court.
Which is what happens with alot of these celebs.
I understand that Dom. But you must also understand that it was reported that she offered to sign a pre-nup and Paul said it wasn't necessary.There is nothing wrong with signing a prenup, especially since McCartney made every single dime of that money without her assistance. He shouldn't have to give that much money to her because things didn't work out.
Marriage should not be an opportunity to get rich off of someone else's hard work.
It hasn't been proven yet that she is trying to "get rich" off of him.
And by the way - he chased and heavily pursued her, and not the other way around. Paul since he lost Linda (married for 28 yrs), and the fact that his kids are now all grown, fears lonliness in his old age. He has stated so in the past, and it is evident in his music since Linda's death. He also deals with depression.
He may have "jumped" to fast out of that fear.
And personally, if I was asked to sign a pre-nup, which I would interpret as meaning "In case I tire of you I can dump your butt", then the marriage/relationship would be off immediately.
But that's just me. I value and place more importance on marriage then many do obviously.
Which is why people should be a little more cautious and understand what the institution of marriage requires BEFORE entering into that relationship.I wish the law protected people like him more. Someone could just come along and be totally fooling someone just to get their hands on some easy cash.
I know that to you, and obviously many others, this may seem like an archaic concept; but then, that is why the divorce rate is above 50%.
We treat marriage today like buying a car. Once you get tired of it, and it no longer suits your needs, then trade it in on a new one.
