I think his piece should probably be a lot smaller.

A cake certainly would have made my divorce a lot better. But then, cake makes EVERYTHING better...

So, the first tier is cloyingly sweet and the last one is bitter and soaked in rum?

Why people even bother to get married these days astounds me.  Good luck to all of you who plan to or already are married.  I don't wish you any ill will but from where I'm sitting it looks like a huge mistake to even contemplate marriage.

No they you get to someone tell you get to keep half the cake (on paper only) , then they half you're half (=1/4 of original cake), then they take small slices of 1/4 of you're cake forever and honestly expect you to kiss there fhat arse as if there doing you a big favor and see no reason why anyone would ever be bitter and vindictive over such generosity!

A good marriage is an amazing thing. Its worth striving for, in my opinion. But like anything good or great or worth it, getting there takes work. Maybe that's not worth it to you. To each their own.

That right there is the biggest part of what i don't understand. I live with my SO, I love her, She says she loves me, we share everything, and we plan to spend the rest of our lives together.  What possible value could a marriage bring to our relationship? Married folks always talk about how amazing it is to be married but I'm pretty sure that the actual marriage is the LEAST amazing part of their relationship.  Add in all the crap slinging by some organizations such as NOM and I don't really want to be associated with it at all.

Naturally gays are in the forefront of this new fashion trend.

Illustration shows a very popular design for the little plastic men on the top of the divorce cake (gay males):

www.columbia.edu

Kickboxing is the gayest sport after extreme wrestling, regular wrestling, Olympic wrestling, mud wrestling, nude Greco-Roman wrestling, well, all kinds of wrestling. actually.

Wrestling is about the only thing gayer than gay sex.

I'm not all that clear on the whys and wherefores of marriage for that matter. There's no way the presents recoup the cost of the wedding and reception at the average wedding unless Daddy gives Baby a house as a wedding present.

Right now, for most legal purposes she is not your next of kin. In fact you are not related in any way. As a result she has no standing to make decisions on your behalf (e.g. if you became incapacitated) unless you have a power of attorney structure in place.

Similarly, if you do not have a will in place and you die, she probably won't be entitled to anything. There could be an applicable 'domestic partner' clause somewhere but you might not want to rely on that.

It's not something you'll need to worry about very often (you hope) but it should be part of your contingency planning.

Wedding customs and Divorce Customs compare

Wedding custom: Over-priced rubber chicken dinner, stupid cake
Divorce custom: KFC and stupid ice cream cake in shape of double coffins

Wedding: Groom Cake
Divorce: Cake in the shape of naked Chippendale dancer

Wedding: Bride wears white
Divorce: Bride dresses like whore

Wedding: Bride's Father pays, gets drunk and angry
Divorce: Bride's Father pays for drinks, laughs and looks smug

Wedding: The 18 Grandparents may pitch in to pay for extras such as the cake
Divorce: The 13 surviving grandparents pitch in and start a lawsuit for their money back

Wedding: It's the happiest day of her life, the most embarassing and painful of his.
Divorce: It's the happiest day of their lives.

Wedding: Hiring limousines costs a fortune, so they use the Bride's Father's car
Divorce: Hiring moving vans costs a fortune, so they continue to live together

Wedding: MAD magazine does a full spread across the middle of the issue. $6.99 CHEAP
Divorce: MAD magazine collects its articles and cartoons into a book. $39.99 CHEAP

You'd be wrong.

I have no chance at all of convincing the Fark anti-marriage brigade about this, but there really is something wonderful (and intangible) about the security that comes when two people are fully committed.

Many people who get married really do have no business of getting married; one or the other isn't committed to it and they just keep on going because they think they should. Marriage isn't for everybody; some people will just never manage to maintain a marriage successfully. But there really is something special there in a healthy marriage.

It always makes me a little sad when Fark is years behind a trend. It's that same feeling I get when everyone knows an Internet meme that was ridiculously popular that I never heard of.

Additionally, in some states years of cohabitation makes you man and wife in the eyes of the state. It means your debts become her debts and her debts become your debts. YMMV.

BowtoMogul: As somebody who is getting married saturday, some of these comments are horrifying.


My advice to you.  Prenup.  If it is never necessary then it was like financial insurance and you will both live happily ever after.  If it becomes necessary, and you're ex- decides to make things contentious, you will pray that you had one.  As someone who ate tens of thousands of dollars in debt due to an exes hidden drug problem, if I ever consider marriage again I will never do it without a prenup.

This goes double if you are a man.  The signature on the papers is usually just the start of your obligations.

On another note, congratulations!

A buddy of mine went through a divorce.

When it was over it was less "I want cake" and more "you're unemployed so shut up and get in the car because were going to Montreal for the weekend."

Separation agreements should be standard in any contract between two parties. Marriage is pretty much the only situation where it is not, although it's the most significant contract anyone can enter.

They're barely meaningful if you get married young and build a life together afterwards, which was most marriages until pretty recently.

My husband had no bachelor party for his first marriage, but they did throw him a huge divorce party when he dropped her a year later (starter marriage - a girlfriend he married for reasons unknown to him or anyone else).

Out of curiosity what age did you get married?  Many farkers on the board have expressed sentiments similar to yours and I wonder if there is a common factor besides being farkers.  Perhaps the farkers who express such sentiments got married younger in life (perhaps early 20s) or if they did it later (30s maybe.)  Like I said, just curious about common factors.

I would agree.  My ex and I both started with pretty much nothing, and the notion of a prenup was laughable because 1) half of nothing is still nothing and 2) we were sure it was going to last forever.  We split very amicably and we didn't have shared credit cards, etc. etc. and he gave me the house.  However, if it had been different, fighting over every nickel and dime and trinket in the house, it would have broken us both financially and ruined us.  If I EVER get married again, and that's a big "if," I wouldn't think twice about a prenup, because the reality is, that often things DON'T work out, and the cleaner the separation, the easier it is for everyone involved.  Obviously no one wants that to happen, but it does.

As for the whole divorce party/cake thing, we actually considered it because he was moving a couple hours away and wanted to be able to say goodbye to many mutual friends.  In the end we decided that would be pretty tacky.

I'd like to be a fly on the wall for any marriage discussion that starts with a prenup signature. If you're a multimillionaire, I can, maybe, see it being understandable. For the average Joe though, there is no way this discussion goes over well. Wouldn't a prenup basically be the first nail in the coffin for a marriage? It's like saying, "well, this thing is probably going to end badly, I need to protect my self". What's the point of getting married to a person you don't trust?

Thats pretty much how I figure it would go. I can see the "My first divorce was messy and I can't let that happen again" but since we don't have much I can't imagine an insistence on one would go over at all.
I am very excited though and she makes more money than me.

I trusted my ex with my life when we got married.  Things happen and people change though.  In the end she was not the same person I married or we would still be married.

The agreements protect both parties if the time should come.  In that eventuality, you will likely be broken hearted and not thinking clearly anyway.  Best to prepare in advance.

While I'm not yet divorced, it seems pretty certain I'm heading that way.  We got married in our early 20s, ten years later it just hasn't been working.

On the plus side, we're still quite amicable.  No pre-nup involved, but much like <b>bsteiny</b>'s situation, we started with nothing so a pre-nup would have been pointless anyway. She's mostly sane, so I don't see much cause for contention; even so, I'm not looking forward to what's coming.

I got married when I was 36.  Now have a nearly 5 year old son.  Wife has decided that rather than settling down, she'd still like to run free apparently.  If it weren't for my son, I'd have already run screaming but now have to sit through the complication of 'agreeing' to something about who gets to raise him, etc (perhaps she can get a sidecar mounted to her midlife motorcycle for example).
