Should She?

Happy Monday Friends!!
Recently after almost four years of dating off and on, Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel!
Of course all this could be rumors but for argument sake, we will say they are engaged.
Another rumor circulating is that Jessica has decided to
have a $500,000 Cheating Claus in their pre-nup in case Justin cheats.
Now my question is this: 
If you know your fiance is a cheater
(because he has a history of cheating during your relationship)
would you go ahead with the marriage?
What exactly is the Cheating Claus going to do?
Question of the Day:
Given these reasons, Should she go ahead and marry him?

    Completely ridiculous. If you already know you can’t trust someone, you shouldn’t be getting married. No amount of money can make up for the damage that cheating causes.

  2. Hmm seriously – how about just not cheating and staying true to your beloved? Sigh, it would be said if this is true!

    Chic ‘n Cheap Living

  3. Hmmm….unless there was a complete and life changing turn around in someone, I couldn’t imagine giving them a second thought!

  4. Well, since I don’t know Jessica or Justin personally…I’m going to choose to assume the best about both of them.

    But if my husband cheated on me, that would be it. Nada. Fin. Done. Over. And I think he would feel the same. It just feels like one of those lines that once crossed, you can’t come back from.

  5. Claire says:

    if you think he’s going to cheat on you then no don’t marry him. Or if you think he won’t cheat on you just to save himself a few hundred dollars? No dont marry him.
    So my answer would be no then lol

  6. If you can’t trust someone, then you shouldn’t be marrying them. Period.

  7. Nicole says:

    If they do get married, this is something that will ALWAYS come back in their arguments, and she’s just not going to trust him fully. It’s gonna be tough for them, that’s for sure.

  8. This is a problem! People are not respecting the UNION! They should not be entering marriage with major trust issues! There is definitely a man out there for Jessica that will treat her like a queen where she does not have to worry about infidelity.

  9. No I would not marry him. I wouldn’t do a cheating clause.

  10. here are my thoughts – stupid, ridiculous, why bother?

    For real. Just find somebody else for goodness sake! It’s not easy to find love but I’d be willing to wait around for the real thing rather than have to go through stuff like this.

  11. I don’t think I could marry someone if I knew they were a cheater. Once a cheater always a cheater

  12. Alida says:

    In our years of counseling we have seen people recover from this when both parties are willing to work it out and move on. One couple we know were separated for a few years over this issue but came back together to have a long and thriving marriage.

    If the idea though is to make the person hurt for causing you hurt I think I would make the penalty higher than what it is. It doesn’t seem like much money for people in their income brackets.

  13. LV says:

    A Cheating clause will not stop someone with character issues who has cheating in their heart. If a person has that kind of history, they are giving a sneak preview of whats in store.

  14. That’s horrible! Absolutely not. I hope that’s not true…I hope the girl has more self respect than that.

  15. Alexa says:

    Hmmm…I guess time will tell…although it does seem a bit ridiculous.

  16. Once a cheater, always a cheater. This is just destined to fail…and the cheating clause is just setting it up for failure.

  17. Sophia Chang says:

    No. I. would. Not.

    It’s interesting because this issue has been bandied about among my friends lately and I even starting using the acronym OOC-AAC for “Once a cheater…”

  18. I would have to say “no.” I mean, why take a vow of “forever and ever” when what you really mean is “until he cheats on me.” I don’t think so. Save yourself the heartache and headache, and don’t get married. Or better yet, break up for good and find someone who will not cheat on you.

  19. Summer-Raye says:

    I think you’re setting yourself and marriage up for failure when you have something like that ha

  20. Mrs. H says:

    I don’t know if this is true or not but I would say if you need a cheating clause then you probably shouldn’t be getting married.

  21. That’s just going to make him invest in cheating without getting caught.

  22. HiLLjO says:

    I agree with Heather but I think pre-nups are ridiculous. Why marry someone who’s just around long enough to claim half your stuff?
    Russel Brand didn’t do that to Katie and they still didn’t have any pre-nups. Good people are good people no matter what kind of papers you make them sign, and the same can go for bad people.

  23. oh gosh, i had no idea there even was a cheating clause like that. kind of weird. i’ve never heard that second rumor, but i think they are a pretty cute couple!
    xo TJ

  24. To each his own….but I wouldn’t marry someone (or be with someone) who has already cheated. That is just me. {shrugs shoulders}

  25. i would say that would be a negative, if your partner cheated on you during your dating period or even engagement, chances are they will continue. and money is not a good enough clause to keep them from cheating. you are using money to build back up your trust, that is never a good thing
