Cordell & Cordell co-founder Joseph Cordell is featured on HuffingtonPost.com for his viewpoint that guys do not appreciate the extent and comprehensiveness of the marriage contract that essentially means all of their assets become hopelessly commingled once they are married.
“The single most important economic decision a person will make during their lifetime is deciding to say, ‘I do,'” Cordell writes. “The second most important economic decision a person will make is deciding to say, ‘I don’t.'”
It’s likely one of the spouses in a marriage will contribute disproportionately more in assets to the marital partnership, yet all that income, property, and assets become merged into one marital pot where the lesser contributing spouse is now entitled to half.
