In divorce nobody wins. Everybody suffers. The biggest mistakes many bitter couples make in divorce court is turning it into a competition.
What if only one person was working. Should their stuff still be taken away?
You asked about "fair" I said that in most cases , the word fair doesn't apply. I know a bit about this topic because like I said, my friend is smack dab in a middle of one. And "if only one person worked" that still counts as "mutual property" .Cause marriage counts as a union. Maybe sometimes you provide more for that union, sometimes your partner does. It's just how the legal part of it works. At least thats how it works here, I'm sure different countries have different laws.
Yep not getting married
Hey, no, dont think that way. My parents had an awful marriage, dad married twice, my husbands parents are divorced, his dad was abusive, lot of shit went down. And yet, we have an amazing marriage.We have our little girl, it's a wonderful life.

nothing's stopping you from getting a pre-nup before marriage.
@kaylaS91 yeah right cause women love pre-nups xD "don´t you trust me?", "i feel like if we have to do a pre-nup, we might as well just break up".the party that will lose out by signing a pre-nup is usually not all that compelled to want it.
... so if I've had this discussion with my boyfriend, had him bring up a pre-nup and I agreed to it, does that mean I'm not a woman?
@kaylaS91 you know that we´re generally speaking right? i mean the average. the standard. not your specific example.
okay, true. But keep in mind that average is more than likely changing in men's favour. Now that women are allowed by law to have an income of their own.
@kaylaS91 i don´t see that. now that women have equal rights, they still wanna have their "unequal" standards where they profit from it. take dating for example. women still expect men to do every step and pay on the first date and be the perfect "gentlemen" totally ignoring that the "gentlemen" role depends on unequal gender rights.i know some women slowly bekome truly emancipated but we are far away from it being a spcial norm or the "standard".
which women?Sounds like you've dated a lot of lemons, tbqh. :(
@kaylaS91 actually i´m mostly speaking about American society. in germany it´s entirely different. most women are really emancipated. only the "underclass" still prefers those conservative values. america is very underdeveloped when it comes to this.
ok. I didn't mention where these women come from, though?
@kaylaS91 i think in Europe it´s entirely different when it comes to this.
