Way2Old - The "Castle" character is the man (Nathan Fillion) and Stana Katic is "Beckett", the leading lady who supposedly is leaving the show.

I was just reading through this thread about Krista. As with other women in G's life it was suggested he had a contractual relationship with her.  Am I in the minority here when I totally discount that George ever, ever contracted relationships with women?  I can't prove that he didn't but can anyone here prove that he had in the past?

It seems you would want a contract relationship for publicity purposes.  Since George never acknowledged he dated her, didn't take her to the Oscars and she often walked 1/2 a block behind him (only slight exaggeration) I don't think she was a contract girlfriend.

As for the other "contract girlfriends" do I think they had a contractual relationship --just for show and that he paid them?  No.  I think they were real relationships (whatever that meant to George at the time)  It would not surprise me however, if there was some type of contract--which included non-disclosure agreement,  a statement by the women that she will not make any financial claims afterwards and that George would pay certain expenses during the relationship (travel, clothes, etc.)

Yup, contract relationships.

Between travel expenses and wardrobe/hair/makeup etc. it's probably pretty expensive to be a celebrity's girlfriend. Also time consuming if you expect to travel with them and appear at functions. If you have a "normal" 9 to 5 job you'd probably have to give it up (if they didn't fire you for excessive absence). Now you have no income, health insurance, etc..

 So, if your expenses are being paid by the celebrity because that's the only way you and this person can be together, and it's put in writing because you're "on the books", does that constitute a contractual relationship? And if it does, does that mean that it's only a business transaction and nothing more?

IMO no. Marriages where the wife (for example) gives up her job and the husband pays the bills is the exact same thing.

To clarify what I meant by "contract relationship":  There have been accusations (many of them nutty) that some of the women in George's life have not really been in a romantic relationship with him.  He "hires" them, gives then a limited time contract to appear/pretend to be his girlfriend but they are not really in a relationship.  The alleged reasons for this are variously that: he needs a beard because he is gay, he needs to publicity to keep in the public eye, he is forced to have a girlfriend by some vast conspiracy. 

I do not believe he has had that type of "contract" relationship.  But as I stated above, I would not be surprised if their were legal contracts involved in his romantic relationships spelling out the rights of each party--includin a pre-nup with Amal.

I have never believed that George contracted any relationships with the women he dated.  He's not a stupid man and he knows there can always be fallout from a relationship. He probably has never done anything that awful that he would be afraid for it to get out.  A couple of women have spoken about George in the past but have never said anything really derogatory about the relationship except he may have cheated on them or he had an aversion to commitment of any kind.

The idea that he needed a woman to walk red carpets with him or he was in need of publicity so he had some sort of contractual relationship is ludicrous in my opinion.
This man never needs publicity .  It's there for the taking.

There's business and the need for written agreements and contracts.  Then there is pleasure which I think for him has to be real and spontaneous.  I think he likes to have  a real relationship with a woman not something prearranged.  

George probably did pay for some or much of his past gfs' expenses.  Especially their clothing for special events and expenses when they travel together.  But that could be the case in many relationships between  men and women.

So far from what I've read here it's a toss up on where some of you stand on the contract thing.

Well, I don't think George ever had to hire girlfriends for any reason (although there may have been the occasional one-night-stand with a hooker). But I do believe there were financial arrangements that had to be made, and if he doesn't have a pre-nup with Amal he's an idiot - which I don't think he is. And even if HE is, his accountants and lawyers aren't. Very Happy

Written agreements in high economic level relationships are not uncommon. With his wealth and the attention he commands, George would be dumb not to pay for contracted confidentiality, or to leave himself open to palimony suits. If I were in his position, anybody I dated would have an ironclad agreement before the first exchange of body fluids.

Hookers, however, are different. They get paid to go home, and if they talk, they don't work much again.

I can't imagine that George and Amal don't have a pre-nup.  They gotta have one.
