We are at the age where divorces are more common than long lasting marriages. Divorces are at their highest rate ever. In America about 51% of marriages end in in a divorce. Anyone who has gone through this stage in their life knows how messy and unnecessarily strenuous this process can be.
Although we all feel immune as if this isn’t going to happen to us, it is important that you do not take the facts for granted and prepare for the worst. 1 out of every 2 of us will be going through a divorce and it will put a big hole in your wallet no matter who you are.
You have fallen in love and have decided to marry the person you thought you could spend the rest of your life with. Unfortunately you married a gold digger and the moment you guys signed the dotted line she has been counting down the days to her big payout (prime example: Kobe’s Wife).
Obviously her constant questions in regards to your financials and her excitement to make your bank account “our” bank account didn’t raise a red flag. Now you guys are always arguing and it is annoying just to have her around. A divorce is imminent and you haven’t taken any proper precautions. In this case, you are fucked. Why should she get half when she wasn’t with you making all the money you worked so hard to earn?
There are many financial trenches you could find yourself in when it comes to divorce. Lawyers are going to keep telling you that you can win the case, and your ego and her ego will not allow you guys to settle. Of course lawyers are going to keep telling you that you can win the case. The longer he prolongs the case, the more money he is going to get.
You must keep that in mind when going through a divorce. She obviously wants her lawyer to squeeze every single penny out of you and he should take as long as he wants. Since she hasn’t earned a dime in her life, she doesn’t understand the way lawyers work and that she is getting charged for his services. She wants him to squeeze every cent out of you without realizing that the longer she prolongs the case the more money she is going to lose in fees.
It is emotionally and financially not worth going through the process for either of you. In this case the best outcome would require both sides to bite the bullet. It is best if you settle. You will lose a lot of money but at least the process is done with and you can get back to gallivanting and living the single life.
Now that we have dealt with the worst case scenario there are a few proper precautions you can take in order to protect your funds should you go through a divorce. The most useful precaution you can take is to not marry a gold digger.
If you need help spotting gold diggers you can refer to our past article “How to Know if She is a Gold Digger.” If you find her irresistible and you know she’s a gold digger, who says you have to marry her. Do not under any circumstance, sign your funds away. Be careful gentlemen, these women are professionals when it comes to getting unearned money.
The next precaution is to obviously keep your financials a secret. No matter how young you are, if getting married crosses your mind, you should start putting money away. Unfortunately we are in a day and age where money changes people and brings out a dark side. I would hate to see you guys being taken for fools by woman who use their vagina for the sole purpose of taking your money. To properly protect your funds you should keep money in an off shore account.
This can be done over a period of time just to ease suspicion from your partner. You could even use a friends name on the account to make sure that nothing gets traced back to you. Although it may seem like your wealth has shrunk, all you really did was put the money away just in case your marriage goes sour.
At the end of the day, gentlemen, we must protect our assets as much as we can. No relationship is going to be perfect, especially with the quality of women we find these days. They are so quick to go shopping and want to be taken out, but yet they can’t properly make you a sandwich or cook a well-deserved meal after a long day’s work.
Marriage is a difficult process and should not be taken lightly. Many of our marriages will end in divorce, so keep that in the back of your mind before you decide to sign your life away.
