Lessons learned from equitable distribution can be hard ones, just as picking the wrong spouse can be. Many people begin to think of getting a pre-nuptial agreement, a subject for another day. (Editors: My case of Lee v. Lee, 721 SE 2d 53 (2011) reveals some of the perils of negotiating your own parenting plan. Both parties here lost because of a down-loaded Internet form!) My thoughts for most West Virginians, even ones who have gained some years, and some property, if you understand the principles below, you just need to make good decisions, consult your lawyer when it is time to make these decisions and manage your property with common sense and compassion. Good luck. And try to marry the right person, for the right reason(s).
