A Case for Kanye West’s “Gold Digger”: Why You May Want a Prenup

We all know the famous song by the infamous rapper. Zealously advocating for high-earning men to enter into prenuptial agreements, the song cautions that “it’s something that you need to have” or she’ll “leave with half.” Sexism aside, the clever beat and rhyming lyrics ring true to an extent.

In the context of divorce proceedings, many are familiar with the concept of “alimony”: the requirement of the higher-earning spouse of the marriage to make payments to the lesser-earning spouse in order to maintain his or her post-divorce support. The amount of alimony paid and received, as well as the term of the alimony payments, are both dependent on the specific facts of each individual case.
