I read a brief article this morning about Kobe Bryant's recent marraige dissolution. His soon-to-be ex will reportedly "settle" for 75 million dollars--supposedly half of Kobe's worth. For the record, Kobe didn't sign a pre-nup (!). And while I think that Kobe is not the brightest star in the universe, I just find it hard to believe that he didn't at least THINK about asking his wife to sign a pre-nup. At the very least, he MUST have wanted her to sign something--but I'll bet that she shrewdly talked him out of it: Mrs. Bryant(in tears): "Kobe, We aren't even married yet and you are talking about divorce!" Kobe: ... Her (still in tears): "I want YOU! Not your money!" Kobe: "Duh...der...ahhh...then signing the contract should be easy!" Her: "Blah blah blah cry cry cry" Kobe: "Duh...der...ahhh." Her: "How can you cheapen what we have by having a pre-nup! Shame shame guilt guilt on you Kobe!" I will dam sure bet that he'll make his next wife sign a pre-nup! LOL Anyway, Kobe's dumb mistake exemplifies my point about men and pre-nups. I commend any man for having the guts to talk, up front, about money and assets BEFORE proposing marraige. And hopefully the man is wise enough to get it all in writing and have a defense attorney waiting in the wings should the marraige should go sour (and the statistics tell us that it will likely go sour!) I think EVERY hardworking man with money and assets should ask a woman the tough questions: "How much money would you want if I divorced you? What about my assets? My house? My investments? My business? Will you sign a pre-nup" Guys, don't be afraid to TALK about this stuff openly before you enter any kind of long-term relationship or marraige. And you should expect most women to try to steer clear of such coversations--because for most women, marraige means win-win. To a woman, marraige represents a lifetime of financial and social security, but, in case of a divorce, a woman will still likely get the largest finanacial windfall of her life, and continue making money from her own career! So, if I were a woman, the LAST thing I'd want my husband-to-be talking about is the sensible division and protection of my money and assets. My opinion is, most women WILL (and should!) object--fervently--to signing any kind of pre-nup or cohab agreement, simply because it's disadvantageous for them! Kudos today to women who are actually willing to sign a pre-nup. I imagine that a lot of women would rather play the romanticism-bullcrap card and decry what an insensitive, unromantic jerk a guy is for assuming that money is more important than love. Guys--if you've worked hard and have money, your destiny is strong, for you can have just about any woman you want--so do NOT give in. Demand a pre-nup! Your entire life's work is at stake here!

Dearest Helena: The shortest, fattest, baldest, ugliest men with the most bank will ALWAYS attract the primest females. Why do you think men work so hard? It goes back to the caveman days: the shortest, baldest, ugliest, fattest caveman could go out on a 3-day hunting expedition as the most unpopular caveman, but when returned with the biggest slab of meat over his shoulder, he suddenly became the most popular, for the females in the clan (naturally) sought him out--in exchange for sustenance (and everything else his food could buy), the women guaranteed him sex.

HPD you are describing the guy in later life BUT he has to actually survive to get that far.  The living overachiever, the greatest risk taker may end up with the women but so many of the men die en route. It is a very well known phenomenon; in fact a close friend of mine did her PhD (Oh my, look an anagram for HPD LOL) on the topic.  Ask any Coroner about the male risk-takers who do not make it, same old story since time began. 

 

 

 

HPD/PhD, and as to the pre-nup.  No hard and fast rules.  It completely depends upon what the original attraction was: he for her boob job, her for his money.  Sign the thing and at least get paid back for putting out with someone she has no attraction to.  This is not love and the pre-nup is the invention of the rich and/or Hollywood (probably the same thing) i.e. for the greedy.

Does this mean that Kobe will call 'Home Boyy' in the Oval office and plead that he is now eligible for a Federal Bailout too???

Huh?

HPD, I took a quote from Hamlet and instead of saying "The Lady doth Protest too much" I changed it to Sir as I honestly think you have gone a little Manic with all your Protesting. I do have respect for your Individuality, but I don't think its appropriate to keep running Women into the ground on a Dating site where Men are actualy looking for a female to maybe have a relationship. Men that would have made enough money to need a Pre Nup, would surely be Intelligent enough to make that decision by themselves as to what they need, and after all its the Lawers and Judges that decide the outcome in the end.  Why don't you give the women a few tips on what a mans needs are in a relationship, {no you had best not] It would still be Macho BS , But clearly would be a little more Dating friendly. and after all isnt that why we are on this site. Happy New Year I hope you fall madly in love with someone that would love you back. and maybe bring you some Happiness. We can do that too you know. :)

No you cannot have just any woman you want.  Your goals will provide you with just the kind of woman you deserve and she may not be the intellectual type with good looks that you think you should have.
