My “prince” is a very successful business man in his own right. He has made me become accustomed to living a lifestyle that I was never used to before. He likes me to wear the latest trends, and doesn’t like an unkempt appearance. He expects me to look nice, dress well, and be surrounded by beautiful things, so of course I need the financial resources to satisfy this. Even still, his needs can change in the blink of an eye and I have to keep up with that. It’s important that I keep myself updated with the latest trends, take regular visits to the spa, get my hair and nails done, and of course make sure that I always look perfectly attired. He expects it and provides for it so I fulfill that expectation.
I’m just a normal, middle class girl that has found a prince that takes care of her emotionally and financially. He is there for me whenever I need him. If I need something he will buy it and if I ask for something he will always strive to get it for me, either right away or within a short period of time.
At the same time, if my prince calls me at any given time, I do my best to be there for him anytime, day or night. Basically I am everything a wife should be—the only difference is that we are not husband and wife on paper.
Without that piece of paper, we’ve also steered clear of the ever-controversial pre-nuptial agreement. That doesn’t mean I don’t have an opinion on it though.
I’m there for him emotionally, physically and mentally so why should I not reap the benefits, too, should we choose to split up? On top of that, I’m risking a lot to be with him; if something happens to our relationship, where would I end up?
If I had a pre-nuptial agreement, it would lay out the specifics and the limits of what I am entitled to should we ever choose to break up, but that’s not what I’d be looking to sign up for. A pre-nup definitely wouldn’t be an option for me. We’ve been together for quite some time and I’ve invested a lot, risked a lot, and become accustomed to the lifestyle of being provided for. I’ve provided for him in many ways—so I should be entitled to at least a little more than what I’d expect a pre-nup would lay out. Basically, a pre-nup would be too limiting.
Ladies, if you don’t limit the emotional investment you make in your man and you don’t limit the effort you put into meeting the expectations he has, then why should you be limited to how much you’re entitled to in the event of a break-up? I know that every relationship is different, so where a pre-nup fits (or doesn’t) is up to the people in those relationships to decide, but, as for me, a pre-nup just wouldn’t be in the cards.
