re: My buddies fiance insists he sign a prenup. - Volvagia
[quote] By not signing it he confirms the necessity of it. And it’s not just about her, but for the benefit of the rest of the company. [/quote] He must be hung and really make her laugh for as far down she is marrying. Marriage is as much a business transaction as it is an emotional one. B...

re: My buddies fiance insists he sign a prenup. - Volvagia

re: My buddies fiance insists he sign a prenup. - Volvagia
[quote] Someone should have explained to her that inheritance isn’t community property....would have avoided a fight [/quote] I don’t think you realize how easily separate property can become marital property. The only way she can be sure it all stays separate by Default provisions is to p...

re: Cryonics: For a mere $220K you can be frozen at death with zero chance of being revived. - Volvagia
[quote]Seems like a good way to be out 220K unless there’s some binding agreement that the facility will remain open forever. [/quote] That’s not the point of concern. Even if the technology is generated....who pays for the procedure? The providing of a new body? Is that part of the deal? It...

re: Billionaire investor says government should have helped consumers instead of companies - Volvagia
[quote] I don’t want to reduce it to an either or. I’m arguing that advancing technology will always make physical/menial labor more efficient and therefore less valuable monetarily.

[quote]What that says to me is the middle declined the same as the top increased while bottom stayed the same. Would that not mean that more people in the middle moved to top earners? [/quote] The bottom being flat is expected. So the upper class’s gains as portion of national income has to c...
