Marriage can be a complicated issue for celebrities, especially those who are always under the spotlight or have more assets to their name.
Rumors indicate that Gwen Stefani, who is leaving The Voice, and Blake Shelton are about ready to take their relationship to the next level, but that could not happen before a long period of negotiations about their prenup agreement.
However, if sources are to be believed, the two are apparently close to putting that behind them and are ready to move forward with their marriage.
While some prenup agreement discussions can sometimes spiral out of control and impose significant discomfort on both parties, it does not seem like that is the case here.
According to Us Weekly, the newly-engaged couple has reportedly been able to negotiate things without any significant issues.
Neither side has made any unusual demands, and everything seemed to be in order on that front.
A source revealed to Us Weekly: “They have been in prenup talks for a few months. The process has been extremely effortless. And there have been no hiccups or outrageous demands during the discussions.”
With that in mind, fans likely not far from seeing the two tie the knot officially and enter the next big phase of their lives together.
It is not clear what their exact plans for the future are and how they are going to approach building their family, but both of them definitely seem quite excited about the prospect.
Apparently, Stefani was the main initiator of the idea to get a prenup agreement, as she felt disappointed by the outcome of her last marriage to Gavin Rossdale, where she did not have one.
The publication noted: “Stefani didn’t have a prenup with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale; she just can’t afford to not have it with Blake.”
The source did not say if there was any underhanded trickery involved in that marriage or if Stefani just wants to play things safe for the future.
The diva recently flaunted her stunning $500,000 engagement ring ahead of her wedding. It has been confirmed that Shelton proposed earlier this month in his native Oklahoma, and Stefani was blown away by the beautiful yet simple romantic gesture.
A source said this about the bling: “Blake had the ring custom designed. It meant so much to Gwen that Blake was so traditional about it.”
A lot of people are rooting for the power couple to stay together.
