You’re planning a wedding? What fun! You’ve got a lot to think about: the outfits, the location, who’s going to stand up with you, the catering… so much going on in your brain all at once that you can barely sleep. It’s all so romantic!

There’s one thing that a lot of people don’t think about, though, even though they really should: Do you and your intended have a pre-nuptial agreement? Well, that’s not romantic. 


Planning for a possible future breakup seems to be the most pessimistic thing you can do, and it’s sure to put a damper on the romantic mood. Of course you know you can trust each other, and you’re sure that you two are going to be blissfully happy together for the rest of your lives, anyway. Why would you even want to think about divorce?


Unfortunately, according to the American Psychological Association, 40-50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. Maybe you really are perfect for each other right now, but what happens over the years as you both evolve and change? Can you be certain that you’ll always be on the same wavelength with each other, or is there a possibility that you just might grow apart? If that happens, can you really trust your spouse to respect your right to financial and material independence?




Keep an eye on your daily horoscope for signs that your relationship might be shifting one way or the other. If you want a more detailed picture right now, a full astrology chart will reveal whether they might just have the hidden potential to pull the rug out from under you in the years to come. 

Look into the progressed charts, too, to see exactly how your spouse might evolve over time. Complete charts will provide a lot of information, but in general, here are the zodiac signs who play dirty during divorce and how you rank when you’re ready to trust someone else with your lifetime security.


1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra is in love with love itself, and they’d sooner fight to save the marriage than argue about who gets what in the breakup. Libra is all about fairness, though, and because they like to have all the bases covered, they might suggest a prenuptial agreement before you do. 


If you two do break up, Libra will only ask for what they truly believe they deserve.

2. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces can’t stand the idea of hurting anyone else, even if they’ve already been hurt themselves — vindictiveness just isn’t in their nature. 


A heartbroken Pisces is a sad thing to behold, and while their emotions do get the better of them at first, once they calm down and can discuss things rationally, they’ll be eager to come to a fair agreement just so that they can move on and start healing.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Although Leo believes they deserve the best part of any deal, they also don’t want negative attention if they can help it. They live for praise and compliments, so they’ll often be as amenable as they can so that no one goes off talking bad about them behind their back. 

Leo truly cares about their family, too, and is more than willing to make sure the children are taken care of.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius doesn’t like commitments in the first place. They value their freedom far too much. No matter how sad they may be about a divorce, a part of them is going to be elated to be single again, free to do whatever they please with whomever they please. 

Straightforward and honest, they’re not likely to ask for too much from you, but they’ll also fight tooth and nail if they think you’re asking too much from them.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)



Cancer can be sulky and passive-aggressive, but twisting legal contracts isn’t their style. They’ll probably cooperate in any divorce settlement, but they’ll carry a grudge for the rest of their lives. 

If you have to deal with them after the breakup, be prepared to shield yourself against guilt trips and emotional manipulation.

6. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius doesn’t trust very many people, no matter how much they love them, so they may be perfectly happy with the idea of a pre-nuptial agreement. Like Sagittarius, Aquarius cherishes their independence and freedom. 


They’re a little more calculating, though, and not above pushing their agenda just to see how far they can go. Get the contract drawn up while they still like you instead of trying to negotiate after the fact.

7. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries prefers to use brute force to get what they want. They don’t have the patience to navigate the legal system, look for loop-holes, or read all the fine print in a contract or settlement. 

This makes it easy to get the better of them on paper, but be careful: if Aries thinks they’ve been taken for a ride, they react instantly and won’t usually stop and think about legal consequences of their actions.

8. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn already has a pre-nup ready to go before they even suggest marriage. That doesn’t mean that they’re expecting to divorce (in fact, they’d like to avoid all that fuss), but this sign is known for their efficiency and planning skills. 


They like to be ready for anything. Be sure you go over that contract with your own lawyer, too, since all that legalese is probably crafted to give Capricorn the advantage.

9. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini would be fine with an equal share in a breakup, except that they’ve probably been talking to a lot of people who’ve convinced them that they can (and should) get a lot more out of you. 

Because Gemini tends to absorb the moods and opinions of the company they keep, they’ll probably be willing to see if their friends are right. Opportunistic and sharp-minded, Gemini will use their powers of persuasion to get you to agree to conditions that might not be in your best interests.

10. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo wants to serve others, but often, they can only stand to do so on their own terms. Virgo isn’t happy with anything no matter how fair you think you’re being. 

Obsessive and analytical, they remember every argument and insult (real or imagined). If it comes to a divorce, they can justify just about anything they ask for in a settlement.

11. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

We know that Scorpio is associated with sexuality and passion, but not many people realize that this sign is also connected to the concept of law. 

This is where Scorpio often shines: they’re good at manipulation, and when they want something (even if just to keep someone else from getting it), they can find ways to twist words and rules to ensure that the legal system is on their side.

12. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

At their worst, Taurus is possessive and materialistic. Taurus dedicates their life to accumulating exquisite possessions and financial assets, and they’ll do anything they can to protect what’s theirs — even if someone else has a legal claim on it. 

Taurus doesn’t mind sharing as long as things are going well, but they definitely don’t like to let go of anything. Get on their bad side, and they might just try to claim everything that was yours in the first place, too.
