Stassi Schroeder is getting ready for her wedding this October by thinking ahead.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star, 31, previously told Page Six that she finds “some romanticism” in a prenup, and now she is detailing for Glamour why she finds the agreement to be so important to her and her fiancé, Beau Clark.
“When I was younger, before I even got into relationships I thought could end in marriage, I always assumed I would get a prenup,” she wrote in her “Basic Bride” column. “Maybe it’s because both of my parents have been divorced three times. I don’t know. But to me, prenup doesn’t feel like a dirty word.”
She continued, “My fiancé, Beau, and I didn’t need to have a big conversation about it—you know, where one of us sat the other down and said, ‘How would you feel about a prenup?’ He’s from a family of divorce too, so we both just knew that’s what we would do.”
“And the more Beau and I talk about it, the more I realize we’re so in sync,” Schroeder noted, going on to confess, “We’re able to have those hard conversations. If I’m going to commit to someone for the rest of my life, I need to be able to talk about uncomfortable things like finances. I’ve found the whole experience to be romantic and sweet, in a way. We’re close enough to discuss anything. Nothing is off limits.”
The “Straight Up with Stassi” podcast host noted that they have not met with lawyers to finalize a document just yet, but she does know what she wants to discuss.
“We have two dogs we love, so they have to be in there,” she wrote. “My career is also very important to me, and it only keeps growing. One thing that I’ve made clear during the preliminary prenup conversations is that Beau has given up a lot of time in his own career to help mine, and that’s something I want to be taken into consideration. I’ve asked him to take a step back from his work as a casting director to come on tour with me, so while it was important that I protect my career and everything that I’ve built, there has to be a clause that gives him credit too because he’s now making part of his career about helping me.”
Clark, 39, and Schroeder are set to marry in Rome this fall, but her co-star Tom Schwartz revealed that their plans could change because of the coronavirus outbreak. More than 10,000 people in Italy have been diagnosed with coronavirus as of Tuesday, with a total of 631 deaths.
The entire country — including a majority of Clark’s family — is now in lockdown.
Still, the couple is hopeful that their wedding plans will go just as they planned, as they recently sent their save the dates to family and friends.
