I'm an American man who's going to marry an Indo girl here in TW.
I found out that Taiwan has a law which says that both people need to agree to get a divorce.
So if one person wants to get a divorce, the other person can say, "Screw you. I want revenge." Or "I want more money." Or "I'm actually a mega-mega beeatch, you'll have to look up to see hell !!!!! hahahahhahahahahhahahahahha!" Then if you chase another skirt or whatever, you can be charged with adultery, punishable by something like a year in jail or prison plus fines?
Before I get married I'll need to have a prenuptial agreement saying something like,
1. 'If we get divorced, she'll keep what's hers (what she bought, her money and her bank accounts) and I'll keep what's mine (things I have bought and my money in my bank accounts).'
2. 'If one of us wants to get divorced, the other one must say ok to getting a divorce.'
(Originally I wrote a #3, but I deleted it because it was just a joke, probably a stupid one.)
I've heard that it's hard to get a prenuptial agreement, or lots of other contracts for that matter, recognized. That they're easy to break. But I can't understand why. If the contract isn't requiring any illegal actions or anything, and if it's signed and video taped and laid out very clearly, then wouldn't that be good enough?
Does anybody have any ideas? I know some people like beautiful, expensive things, but I really like cheap, free things.
I've known people who have spent like 40,000 US$ on weddings only to find out a couple years later that their husband is 95% gay but just in denial as he was very religious, or they grow apart or this or that.
Does anybody know any good, true horror stories that can add caution and ammunition to my reasoning? I really respect other people but somehow I feel better when I learn of mistakes to avoid, they seem so 'real world applicable'. Seems to add to my knowledge base. Also happy stories are great to read too.
