I chanced across this article in my feed reader the other day.
I hastily clicked the link to see what had brought about this sea change in attitudes among the British divorce industry. If you go back to the last few big-name celebrity/rich person divorces which made the headlines because the man in question REALLY got fucked, they all happened in the UK. Paul McCartney/Heather Mills, anyone?
So I started reading, and it took me a little bit to figure out how exactly a pre-nup could survive in the man-hating divorce courts of the UK. And then I realized… it was the FEMALE with the pre-nup!! Of course! It all made sense.
Remember that Marriage 2.0 is all about wealth transfer, but only from the man to the woman. Transferring wealth from the royal sex to the male is unconscionable in Western divorce culture.
The Supreme Court said it agreed that in the right case such agreements can have decisive or compelling weight.
“In the right case” = “When the woman stands to benefit”
Simple as that.
