The typical male should only have assets that are in an IRA or a house that fully leveraged. And he should get all his toy-buying out of the way.This is exactly it. Let's consider the typical guy between ages 25-35 getting married for the first time.
This typical 25-35 year old male has lived in scarcity mode his entire dating life. Yes, he got a long term girlfriend. He might have had a few others before his current fiancé. Getting a girlfriend was an effort for him. If she leaves, he'll have multiple sexless months.
The typical 25-35 year old male marrying a similarly aged woman is more likely than not to get divorced from that woman during the next 20-25 years. There's under a 50% chance that marriage lasts until the 25th anniversary.
He needs a prenup if he has any assets or expects to get any assets during the next 10, 20, or 25 years.
Most people don't take those vows literally or seriously.
