Gabrielle Union Talks Prenup, Relationships & Her First Wedding With Arsenio Hall [Video]
BET’s “Being Mary Jane” star Gabrielle Union stopped by the Arsenio Hall show to talk wedding plans, past relationships and more with the talk show host.
On if planning a wedding the second time around easier:
Yeah, while the last time I just wrote checks. I was working, I had a wedding planner, and I showed up like “oh that’s nice who picked that out.” I was not apart of it. But the pastor who married me, the first time, he didn’t even get my name right. He refused to come to the rehearsal dinner and then didn’t say my name correctly. So the whole vows his like. And we got married in New Orleans. So it was like (In a New Orleans Voice) “Do you Gabriel,” and I was like “I Gabriel,” I pronounced my own name incorrectly. So that should have been a sign that this isn’t going to work.
WOW! I could only imagine. She also spoke on the type of men she dated in the past before hooking up with Dwyane Wade. One guy was even unemployed.
Well they don’t start off that way. I’m one of those “baby I’ll stick with you.” I think you have potential and lets just be on this ride together. Except my train kept going and they hopped off.
But what was really interesting and kind of funny was her reason for insisting on a getting a prenup in her new marriage with Miami Heat Basketball Star Wade.
For this marriage, the biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a prenup…at my insistence,” she said. “When you have your own stuff, you don’t need to worry about anybody else’s stuff. So everyone should go into the relationship knowing I’m here for you and you’re here for me. And the reality is, I’ve never seen Dwyane balance a checkbook, so I gotta protect my stuff. It’s the wave of the future, protecting your stuff.
