Quebec. You’re doing it right!

January 25, 2013

Find a girl in Quebec.

Do not marry.

Draw up a legal contract outlining division of assets upon breakup. Or not.

Cohabit.

Girl wants to leave? Fine.

Unmarried Quebec couples have no right to alimony, court rules – Montreal – CBC News

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2013/01/25/supreme-court-ruling-eric-vs-lola-quebec-civil-code.html

Quebec Justice Minister Bertrand St-Arnaud said the decision “confirms the principle of freedom of choice which has always governed life in Quebec, in other words the freedom of couples who choose the rules that will govern their union.”

Amen.

Read it and enjoy. I’ll be brushing up on my French.

What i’m REALLY hoping for is for this ruling to put pressure on those who want to challenge the current structure in other Provinces. Especially for the rich guys who are currently with gold-diggers in waiting.. they’ll have plenty of incentive to try.

This news really made my day :)

  1. I’ve been waiting for this decision for a year. The disappointing thing is it was a 5-4 spilt. Meaning it was only one judge who agreed in the result not in the majority reasons that prevented this from being a travesty.


  2. How did THAT happen??? It may not be perfect but it’s an amazing event in this climate.


  3. well it’s aboot time, eh. still not letting a woman live with me.


  4. Wait, you don’t even have to be married in Canada for her to be able to screw you with alimony?

    Hell with that shit.


  5. Even if it’s by a 5/4 split, it shows common sense is not dead.


  6. F#CKING brilliant. Any community that removes citizens right to be a atrocious litigious $ grubbing victimized jerk offs in any way gets my vote. People have replaced hard work with STEALING from each other one way or the other using ruthless skilled lawyers. If I had my way, I would put a moratorium on all law suits world wide and all alimony and all that BS. We all need to find a new way to all get along and get rich and take care of ourselves and each other if that is what we want, that is not about bullying robbing and extorting $ from each other.

    Thanks for posting this brilliant development.


  7. You don’t have to live in Quebec, the laws in the states vary by state but I’m sure alimony isn’t common for couples that cohabitate only.
    Though why exactly anyone would want to live with and raise children with a person they don’t want to marry is beyond me.


  8. “Though why exactly anyone would want to live with and raise children with a person they don’t want to marry is beyond me”

    Feminism wanted to make marriage irrelevant. They have succeeded.


  9. Why have kid and not being married? To make it less likely for the woman to leave with a nice severance package. That way the only thing she could have access is alimony for the kid. When kid get 18 year old goodbye alimony to the ex, it go directly to the kid if it’s still needed.
    If I remember right people who aren’t married and who have kid are less likely to split in Quebec province.


  10. Lifeuniverse42: But that’s kind of what women think when they choose to work rather than staying home with the little ones: “If he says bye bye after I hit the wall, I’m screwed with few work prospects. Better find a kiddy kennel fast and continue on the career bunny trail….”

    Anyone who trusts a partner so little that they aren’t willing to have a marriage with that person really shouldn’t be raising kids in the first place in that environment.


  11. @Liz : What’s in it for a man to get married today?

    A marriage is only asking to be screwed over by the law, using the wife and kids as an excuse. Deciding to have kid with a woman is already doing a big commitment.

    People expect the woman to be a functioning adult and if shit happen, the adult must be able to step up to the plate to provide for itself and the kid. We could talk about the situation where the husband died, the wife must now assume the full responsibility for the family and provide for it. People did that in the past and also today. Why expect less when a couple end up divorcing?


  12. @lifeuniverse42: If you feel there is nothing in it for you to get married, don’t get married. But you should probably also not have children with a person you fundamentally don’t trust. If you do, you have by your actions become part of the problem. Don’t shift the blame to others (you don’t like it when feminists do that, do you?)


  13. Just to add: “We could talk about the situation where the husband died, the wife must now assume the full responsibility for the family and provide for it. People did that in the past and also today. Why expect less when a couple end up divorcing?”

    Couples should have life insurance (also disability) for those types of potentialities. In the military (our case) the life insurance is automatic and we have a great deal of supplementary life and disability insurance also.


  14. Thought I’d make sure people are clear – doesn’t matter if you’re married or not in the states; you’ll be paying alimony and child support out the ass if you break up.

    Even co-habitating comes with alimony in majority of the states. Really it just varies how hard you’ll be screwed and how long you have to live together.

    And dear lord, no one, ever, EVER co-habitate with a single mom. Some states you only have to have the kid in your house a few nights for you to be financially responsible. If there’s a kid involved, play extra safe.


  15. […] gets it right on […]
