On a recent Arsenio Hall Show appearance, Gabrielle Union discussed her upcoming nuptials to Dwayne Wade. Union was quite candid when it came to her wedding plans, as well as protecting her assets.
“For this marriage, the biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a prenup…at my insistence. When you have you own stuff, you don’t need to worry about anybody else’s stuff. So everyone should go into the relationship knowing I’m here for you and you’re here for me. And the reality is, I’ve never seen Dwyane balance a checkbook, so I gotta protect my stuff. It’s the wave of the future, protecting your stuff,” Union stated.
Typically in marriages you hear of the man requesting a prenup, but Union ain’t no fool.
Union also discussed her previous marriage and how other men compared to Wade:
“Unemployed. They don’t start out that way. I’m one of those, ‘Baby I’ll stick with you. I think you have potential. Let’s be on this ride together.’ Except my train kept going and they’d hopped off and they’re like, ‘Well, you can pay.’ Not everyone had the same six pack as Dwyane. They were maybe a littler fuller, a little less hair. And I’m divorced so clearly, I’ve made a ton of mistakes before this one.”
The soon to be Wade family is also drawing the line when it comes to not only the size of the wedding party, but also the guest list:
“No bridesmaids. No bridesmaids, no groomsmen. Trying to wrangle a bunch of broads, like oh, somebody wants one kind of dress, somebody wants something else, you start to not like them after a couple of months. So, yeah. We’re older. This is the second time around. It’s just us and the kids. We’re just riding out, just us.”
“There’s a lot of people who think they’re coming…and they are not. Oh, it’s bad. I don’t [draw that line], he’s the executioner like, ‘Let’s go through your list. Absolutely not.’ And I’m like, ‘Our cousins?’ and he’s like, ‘No.’ If you’re not about us and we don’t both have a relationship with you, you’re not gonna make it. So if we were at Magic City in Atlanta, you’re probably not coming.”
Clutchettes, what do you think about Union’s prenup requests?
