not getting divorced
yes - get a pre nup.
infact I don't think you even have to be married.
children affect it a lot.
if you stick it in, you can lose your house.
Yes you could lose your house or be forced to sell it to release equity.
wouldn't it depend on how it was paid for, as in you had a trust fund which you used to pay for it?.
if you've been married for a short amount of time the court might put the split in your favour but they tend to go 50/50 unless children are involved.
yes, you total assets can be taken in to account and depending on the situation you will be forced to sell it
I am never getting married
Yes, marriage is betting someone half of your **** that you'll love them for the rest of your life.
Marriage is a scam.
Doesn't matter, if someone is financially dependant on you and you leave them you pay.
How about a Jew wedding or a Buddhist wedding? Do all the religions have the same legal BS attached for any given country?
This is why you marry someone richer than you
Yes, religion is irrelevant when it comes the law of marriage in this country
That's why some people may get married with the intention of getting a divorce.
that's shocking but probably true
Being married is a legal position rather than a religious one....and if you are married you don't own the house 100%, you both on it..that's the point of being married. When you divorce assets will be split equitably, it depends on circumstances such as children and custody, but needless to say if you have a financial dependant then you are ******.
You don't even have to be married as others have pointed out, cohabiting can also result in asset division when the relationship breaks down, particularly when children are involved.
My dad took advice with his will in that if he died or left her and she had nothing he'd have to 'keep' her indefinitely
Luckily when he did leave her she had as much as him so they went their separate ways
