Although you may be sure you won’t need one, sometimes it’s a good idea to get a prenuptial agreement, just in case. That’s the motto Charlie Sheen is taking when it comes to his fourth marriage.
The actor is engaged to a 24-year-old who he says is his soul mate. He has reportedly said he doesn’t think he needs a prenup, but will do one “just in case.” That may be the wisest choice considering his estimated net worth is about $125 million and rising.
When it came to his third marriage, which lasted almost three years, the couple had a prenuptial agreement. When all things were said and done, his ex Brooke Mueller walked away with $3.5 million. If we look back at his second marriage, he did not sign a prenuptial agreement with his then-wife Denise Richards. This may be due to the fact that he did not have a lot of money at the time and most of his riches came from royalties that started after their marriage ended.
Marriage is often seen as a very romantic event, filled with promise of a wonderful future, even if it’s the fourth time around. But as this example shows, no matter which marriage a person is on, it’s important to think rationally about all possibilities, romantic or not. In Sheen’s case, if you consider his large fortune and the fact that he has several kids, most Florida residents can see the importance of signing a prenuptial agreement before he ties the knot again.
