Primarily a drafting problem, or a solitary, "pre-nup-hostile", justice carrying the ball? Why are state courts ever willing to find explicit written contracts regarding the marital relationship "unconscionable" , or subject to changing interpretation, and yet admit no such possibility in regard to the complex, unsigned, and generally NOT disclosed contract one enters into when "I do" is said? I know of no high-earning spouse who has escaped alimony after a long marriage based on pleading that "I didn't understand, and certainly didn't intend that my spouse was going to be an unemployed slacker for the length of the marriage, and thus entitled to support, and it would be unconscionable to make me support such a person!"
