Between playing herself on the scripted television series ‘Being Mary Jane’ and blocking Siovaughn Wade’s supporters on social media, Gabrielle Union has enough stress in her life. But she isn’t too mentally depleted to acknowledge the importance of having an iron clad prenup in place before she ties the knot with NBA star Dwyane Wade.
“For this marriage, the biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a prenup. At my insistence,” she bluntly explained on The Arsenio Hall Show earlier this week.
While the 41-year-old actress accepted Wade’s proposal in December after discovering the 32-year-old athlete had fathered a child with another woman, she isn’t too starry-eyed in love not to take into account some valuable lessons she learned from her first marriage.
“When you have your own stuff, you don’t need to worry about anyone else’s stuff,” Gabrielle told Arsenio. “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.”
