Is this a clause in a typical divorce that was not contested?

Q: I just read my divorce settlement. I had not read it when I signed it several years ago. It states that if there is a reconciliation between me and my spouse and we remarry that I am not entitled to any of their property in the second marriage. So I basically signed off on any property in the future? My former spouse said that he did not have anything to do with putting that in the settlement and there attorney just "put that in" without their knowledge. Does that sound correct?  

A: David's Answer: Sometimes attorneys work from their boilerplate agreements and thus this language may have already been contained in their model agreement on their computer. That said, when each party signs the agreement, they're pledging they thoroughly reviewed same and agree to all the language. If both of you wish to change it, however, you can always do so.
