LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Do You Need A Pre-Nup Even If You Don't Have A $750 Million Fortune Like Jessica?

Jessica Simpson has a fortune to protect when she marries Eric Johnson — but do you need similar financial protection when you marry your man?

Jessica Simpson is literally rolling in dough — her fashion/accessories brand grossed $750 million alone in 2010 — which is why she and fiance Eric Johnson (or Jessica’s lawyers, more likely) have decided it’s best that they sign a pre-nup. Is this sort of financial protection something that you yourself should consider before saying ‘I do’ to your BF?

My gut instinct here is to say ‘no’ – you do NOT need a pre-nup. However, each couple’s relationship and financial situation is different. Jessica and Eric have been dating for a mere six months and she has MUCH more moolah that he has. It makes sense that she’d be wary about her fortune.

If your guy is jobless and without ambition, it might not be the worst idea in the world to have your lawyers draw up some papers. If he’s jobless because of the economy but actually looking, that’s a different story entirely; everything depends on each person’s unique circumstances.

However, I will say this — asking your respective other to sign a pre-nup implies a lack of faith that the marriage will work in the first place. It’s like you’re saying you and your hubby are setting out to fail before the wedding even takes place. Just saying. Do what you will!

I have to laugh because when the rumor was that she wasn’t going to get one, everyone called her an idiot and now that the rumor is that she is going to get one, everyone is saying she’s implying she doesn’t trust him and that she has no faith in the marriage. Can’t win.
