*&^%, then I better get some pictures/posters/ancient relics, I don't wanna be the only weirdo without any decorations.

I think I should buy pictures. It seems like the adult thing to do.

All I really own in terms of decorations is this ancient statue/woodcarving type thing I bought while visiting some erotic temples in India (Khajuraho). Not sure if I want to bring that...

While it's hypocritical of me, I vote that you not buy pictures.  You are going to be moving  up to three more times in the next three years (more if you move out for the summers or do judicial clerkships).  Moving sucks.  You'll accumulate too much crap even without wanting to.  There is no reason to try to accumulate anything extra and move them 5 times in the next 5 years.  Stuff gets broken, and scratched, and lost, and loses its newness, and otherwise becomes a huge burden.

Thats true... in fact, thats a pretty good excuse NOT to decorate: I'm moving soon. Plus, at this stage of my life, I don't trust my visual taste beyond a few weeks.

In 4 years, I never put up any pictures/posters decorations, and I probably won't in Chicago either.  Not saying is the right call, just saying you won't be the only one in Regents with boring apartment decorations.  ;)

easy solution for people who want to keep potential spouse from their assets: DON'T GET MARRIED.

or get a prenup  ;)

Is it really possible that 124 members of a class of 175 are in the facebook group?  That seems so high.  Maybe facebook is just way more pervasive than I thought it was.

My guess is that people signed up when they were admitted and just haven't left.

I'm still a member of the Michigan facebook group.

 :o

I just was reminded that we're attending the 34th ranked law school in the country.

I think I'm going to go cry in the corner now.

I think if they just increased our class size to 800, we would be #1.

If my wife to be as much as flinched when presented with a prenup, I'd have her ass on the street the same evening.

But pre- and postnups are battle plans for a war that can be avoided. They make it easier for people to pick up and leave.
This is the sad part... "I don't love my wife, but I have to stick with her, I can't afford a divorce". What the @#!* kind of relationship is that to keep alive?

Yeah, I found that argument silly.  She's basically saying that a pre-nups are good because they give you financial incentives to stay in a crappy marriage.  Not really what she's saying, but kinda.

Argh. Pretty much confirmed that I won't be moving into Regents until the 7th/8th.

Anyone else have their move-in dates decided upon?

He called on Sunday and said he'd get back to me in the next couple of days.  :-\

But wouldn't you be worried that over the course of say, 20-30 years, things could change?  The other person doesn't even necessarily need to stab you in the back, maybe you just grow apart, etc.

People "grow apart" for predictable reasons. I don't have any illusions about there not being any freakout periods, but I do know that I am quite capable of taking the long view, being loyal, and always remembering to have a lot of fun. He should be capable of these things, too, if he is to be someone I would consider as a husband.

caveat: I don't need to be married and would quite easily skip the whole marriage thing altogether if I weren't feeling it.  I'm saying that if/when I get married it is to someone I would trust with my money as much as I trust, say, my mother.

Fair enough, but I still don't see the point of not having a prenup, even if you trust the guy as much as your mom.  :-\

To be fair to hank and qui, if what they meant was something like, "If I were about to marry someone, and I thought, "Hmm, maybe I should get a prenup because I feel this person intends to stab me in the back," I'm probably marrying the wrong person," then I agree too.

Nah, at least for me:

If I were about to marry someone, and I thought, "Hmm, maybe I should get a prenup because I feel this person may some day stab me in the back," I'm definitely marrying the wrong person.


But wouldn't you be worried that over the course of say, 20-30 years, things could change?  The other person doesn't even necessarily need to stab you in the back, maybe you just grow apart, etc.
