Talking Dictionary581. Asking Will Make Her "Nupset"


581. Tom said, "I think I'm going to ask Marlene to sign a pre‐nup before we get married." His friend Eli said, "You're kidding, right? You might as well just call off the wedding. A pre‐nup tells her that you'd rather keep your money than keep her. A pre‐nup tells her that you don't trust her. Has anyone close to you ever told you that they don't trust you? That's a terrible thing to hear. If you're lucky, she'll refuse to sign it and dump you immediately. If you're unlucky, she'll sign it and pretend to love you until she gets tired of pretending. Then, she'll dump you. Put yourself in her shoes. How would you feel if she were wealthy and asked you to sign one?" Tom said, "It wouldn't bother me. She'd be doing the right thing, the common sense thing." Eli said, "Then you don't really love her." 2.9
