From the article-

"It's a planning tool. Given that half of [COLOR=#366388 !important][COLOR=#366388 !important]marriages [COLOR=#366388 !important]end [/COLOR][COLOR=#366388 !important]in [/COLOR][COLOR=#366388 !important]divorce[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] it makes sense to plan," said Marlene Eskind Moses, the president of the AAML.

I think, given that half of marriages end in divorce, it makes sense to remain single.

That's my plan. Unless, of course, I find a woman who is willing to give me a signing bonus

If I found myself single, I'd be better off financially speaking by staying that way.

However...I would share....

...and no, no signing bonus.
