Kandi Burruss is engaged and thrilled about her first marriage, but make no mistake: She is a businesswoman and all about her paper. So much so that she [will] be having a prenup. I can’t blame her. Afterall, she is reportedly worth $35 million. Love is beautiful, but not always everlasting, which is why the former Xscape star explained her thought process in a new post.
Kandi writes on her blog for Bravo:
"Since I’m newly engaged, I’m going to touch on a couple of things in the last couple of episodes that would be related to marriage and family.
First I’ll go back to my conversation with Porsha about pre-nups. I do believe in pre-nups. I know that some people feel if you are truly in love and are planning to be dedicated to your marriage that a pre-nup somehow means the person requesting the pre-nup is expecting the marriage to fail. I don’t agree. I feel like it’s a safety precaution. Just like if you have a fire extinguisher in your home it doesn’t mean you expect it to burn down, but you’re just prepared to put out the fire before it starts if need be.
I’ve had friends and associates who didn’t get a pre-nup say “they didn’t need one,” “she or he would never do that,” etc. But then later when they got divorced, things got ugly, and the person tried to get everything, they were like, “I would have never thought they would have done that to me,” “she or he is not the person I married,” blah, blah, blah. I feel like people do some crazy and vindictive things when they’re hurt, so I think there should be agreements set in place while everyone is thinking clearly. That way if D-day ever comes (and hopefully it won’t, but if it does), then it doesn’t have to get uglier and more hurtful than it already is."
