Many news outlets took notice of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s surprise wedding one day after his company’s initial public offering, and speculated that Zuckerberg and his now-wife probably signed a prenuptial agreement before walking down the aisle.
This week we’d like to ask you: Did you get a prenup before marrying? If you’ve never been married, would you try to get one? Has an unsatisfying divorce settlement persuaded you to insist on a prenup if you marry again? Would you ever persuade a client to get a prenup? If so, what would the circumstances need to be?
Answer in the comments.
Read the answers to last week’s question: Have You Ever Asked a Particularly Bold Question on a Job Interview? Did It Succeed or Backfire?
Posted by Meredith: “When looking for a midlevel litigation associate position at a big commercial firm, I used to ask the youngest person interviewing me how many of the partners in the department were divorced. It was my own personal quality-of-life index—if every last partner was on their second or third family, I figured, the preservation of my own marriage and personal life was not likely to be a priority. It seems to work pretty well, unless the person you ask is divorced, in which case they tend to take offense.”
