If there's one couple that we look at and ask ourselves "How are they still together?", it's President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. In the light of recent allegations of Donald's affairs and multiple disrespectful remarks towards women from back in the days, the public is surprised about Melania being so seemingly nonchalant.

The couple first got together in 1998. Back then, Donald was married, but Melania still agreed to go out with him. Flashforward to 2005, the former model officially became Mrs. Trump.

Back then, there was no way Melania could've known how her life with Trump would turn out, and she would eventually become the First Lady. However, she knew about Donald's fortune, and that was one of the reasons to stick around even during the hard times.

On his side, Trump is perfectly aware of his wealth and personal demeanor, which is why he has always signed a prenaptual agreement, to protect his assets, just in case. So, how would the story go if the couple decides to divorce? Is Melania's position secure enough?

Conditions of the presidential marriage

Donald Trump's previous two marriages involved a prenup. His first wife Ivana got $14 million, plus $650,000 annualy for child support, and appartment in New York. His second wife, Marla Maples, got $2 million. The difference depends on the number of years spent married, and whether there were any children.

Melania and Donald have been married less than he had been to his first wife, with whom he spent 15 years together, but circumstances of the current presidential couple are a bit different.

First of all, there's a difference in Trump's fortune at the time of marriage with Melania. Most likely, she was to be compensated more than Donald's first two wives. Second of all, Trump's presidency. There's a chance that the couple might've renegotiated the prenup, but if not, Melania Trump could argue to contest the agreement in her favor, due to unforeseen circumstances.

Currently, it's estimated that the First Lady could be looking at $50 million and some real estate. The custody of their son, Baron Trump, would've been discussed in court separately.

How Trump actually feels about prenups

Donald Trump said that he doesn't consider prenups to just be a protection of his assets, he believes that it's tough for women to be married to him. Apparently, he looks at these agreements as a way to reward his wives for being with him.

He stated that he rejects the concept of divorce and hates the possibility of it, but prenups are a must. "Even though they're nasty, terrible documents, I'm a big believer in that stuff," he once said.

Considering the circumstances of their romance's beginning, Melania Trump must have known what kind of person she was marrying, so we hope she negotiated the conditions of the prenup wisely.
