Why would I try it?

I heard THE WORST thing on the radio the other day. The DJ was talking about prenuptial agreements and said that now, not only are people writing prenups for money and stuff, but they are also writing lifestyle prenups. That means that they write out their expectations for their marriage, and if those expectations aren't met, it's grounds for a divorce.

Here are some of the examples they gave:

- If either spouse gains 40 lbs --> divorce.
- If either spouse cheats, the other one can cheat on them right back.
- The wife wanted to go dancing at least 4 times a year, and if her husband didn't take her, she was allowed to go with whoever she chose.
- If the husband was going to have an affair, the wife had a list of all the women she would be okay with him having an affair with.




I thought this whole discussion was ridiculous and sad and I hated it. So when my parents came out for my graduation, and it was still on my mind, this conversation happened:

me: Mom, what would you do if Dad gained 40 lbs?
Mom: He wouldn't.
me: But what if he did!
Mom: I guess I'd tell him to work out....
me: Oh. What if you gained 40 lbs, what would Dad do?
Mom: I have no idea, why would I try it?!

Which is a response I really like. I guess when I get married, I won't try it, either.
