Joe and Jessa a Prenuptial Agreement is a legal agreement between a couple BEFORE they get married. It is usually used to make arrangements for the division of assets, property or the provision for spousal support in the event of a DIVORCE. This month your daddy and I celebrate 16 years of marriage! I have a better legal document that I think couples should sign before they get married.
Daddy and I have met with a lawyer to sign the paper work needed to give daddy the Power of Attorney over me because of my ALS symptoms. This allows daddy to make all legal and financial decisions on my behalf. I thought that this would be hard because I like to be in control. I was surprised when the lawyer started going through the Power of Attorney 30 page MANUAL explaining all daddy's RESPONSIBILITIES. He never once presented the POWER that daddy would have as a means of gaining a PERSONAL ADVANTAGE. Whatever topic the lawyer covered he qualified that Daddy was to act in MY BEST INTEREST! They talked right there in front of me about ALL the ways daddy was to take care of me for almost an hour, then Daddy signed.
When daddy got me out of the wheelchair and back into the car to head home all I could say through tears is, "Thank you!" I thought it would be uncomfortable to not be in control. Instead, I experience an incredible sense of security, protection and love more than I ever had before! I believe with all my heart that acting in the best interests of your spouse is what God intended marriage to be based on. When you get married I pray that you will commit to use any POWER that you have to act in the BEST INTEREST of the one you love ALWAYS and FOREVER!
I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s
life for one’s friends.
