    Unsure

    does a divorced lady gets everything from the husband ?
    i was watching this movie and what i came across is when a lady gets divorced she can take husband's home, car, pension and almost leave him with nothing, ist correct? thats a big price for knocking some one.
    if yes then no wonder why people don't get married that often there, they prefer to "live together" instead.

    I'm only guessing here, however I assume the individual circumstances are taken into account when deciding the division of community property. One would imaging that, in the normal course of events if there were children and they were staying with the mother, then she would also keep the marital home.

    as far as the living together thing, we have common laws, that state if the man and woman are living together for a certain period of time in the same dwelling sharing it, even though they aren't married their belongings become shared in a legal sense. the laws vary from state to state.

    as far as divorce, i'm not really sure, because i haven't experienced it or known someone well that experienced it like that, but the judges here would probably be partial to the wife for the reason that she often wants and gets custody of the kids. some things could make it worse, for instance if you are having an affair, and you're wife finds out and divorces you, i wouldn't be surprised if that judge gave her almost everything in the divorce.

    i've always wondered, is there a romantic way to ask for a pre-nup?

    Speaking from experience...Yes they do get the majority of the estate including the children if there are any. Even living with someone establishes a "common law marriage" rule. This means that if you have a girlfriend and you ask her to live with you and after six months she screwed your best friend,, tapped your bank accounts and is doing drugs in your living room, you can not kick her out. She could actually take you to court just like she was married to you.

    Lord forbid that there are children involved. The courts lean heavily to the mother's side for custody and everything seems to go to the mother "in support" of the children. They can go after you retirement and there is a percentage chart that allows them to get more the longer they were married to you. The courts will also divide the debts. They will divide the debt between the 2 people. The order from the court is a temporary restraining order to the creditors. So say you pay all your bills and credit cards off and the X stops paying her bills or goes bankrupt... they can now come after you for the debt and also report it to your credit report.

    For all the young men out there...all I can say is listen to the Tom Leykis show.

    Children are property in America. That's just capitalism run mad.

    Just make marriage conditions..

    Go to a lawyer..we have special ones in Holland called notarisen .
    They create legal documents that describes the conditions in case of a Divorce..Who gets what. Still Bawa, I don't suppose you will have to worry too much about that.

    http://www.xs4all.nl/~advocare/folder70.htm <----- Don't bother to click this link, unless you are planning to get married shortly and can read Dutch

    Restricted Partnership: The Dutch law offers the possibility of a restricted Marriage partnership and includes for example that already obtained before and during the marriage, differently than donation or law of inheritance. The partnership that the debts of everyone could have among other things been recovered from each partners within the partnership. In practise such Marriage conditions hardly ever prevent debts being incurred, such as often are made with credit cards, particularly during the divorce period


    sorry it's a crappy machine translation
