If you plan on having kids one day, Pauline Hanson wants you to do one thing.

In a detailed interview outlining her vision for the future of Australia, One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has said that if given the opportunity to lead the country, all Australian couples would be forced to enter into a prenuptial agreement prior to marrying.

“Family law is high on my agenda,” the Queensland senator told the Sunday Mail. “It needs court-approved premarital agreements on finance and parental issues.”

Hanson says the pressure currently experienced by family law courts would be eased through the introduction of prenups because financial and child care agreements would already be in place.

“Family law is high on my agenda. I just think it needs a complete overhaul,” the 62-year-old said.

“It needs court-approved premarital agreements on finance and parental issues. So before someone goes into a relationship or a marriage, you must have a premarital agreement. It would be confidential (and lodged with courts)," she said.

"We’ve got to free up our court system. It’s overloaded. A lot of judgments aren’t being handed down for years.”

Prior to the 2016 election, Hanson announced One Nation's support to abolish the family law court completely, recommending the system be replaced by a "Family Tribunal," which would consist of "people from mainstream Australia" with no legal training or expertise in family issues overseeing and ruling on complex legal family disputes, separations and child custody cases.

Then in September, Hanson suggested that family violence was in part a result of men's frustration over the family court system, and even went as far as to suggest that fewer men would murder members of their family if the court was abolished.

Also during her Sunday Mail interview, Hanson said that if elected Prime Minister she would abolish the GST, consider a substantially reduced flat-rate tax of just two percent, introduce an Australian identity card, set a migration limit, launch a royal commission into Islam and reduce the number of politicians within the Australian parliament.
