Pre-nuptual agreement up held by British Courts

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It looks like the appeal court has held up a pre-nuptual agreement although they are non-legally binding in this country

    Is this possibly a test case and the end for gold-diggers as we know it?


    Rich, amd although German, pretty foxy too.

  2. That is no change from the current situation. Taken into account - yes. Legally binding - no.

    What is more, changes in circumstances can blow them out of the water. EG, not taking kids into account when making the initial agreement (i.e. before the kids are born). If you make the agreement, then have two kids, then separate, how can the initial agreement possibly stand if it does not make provision for children?

    A court is required to have the welfare of the children as its "first consideration"

    Furthermore, how many of us "normal" peolple (ie not mega rich businessmen or celebrities) would ever actually try to agree a prenuptual contract?

    IMO this case makes no difference at all, either

    (a) in the rarified world of the super rich, or
    (b) to us Arrsers in general.

    (PS - I would!)
