English term or phrase: with knowledge aforethought
Testo teatrale americano (per la messa in scena e non per la pubblicazione). Dialogo tra un padre e la figlia a proposito della fine del matrimonio di lei.

A: The problem with being dumped is that you start to feel inadequate. What hurts the most though is looking back and realizing that a period of my life that I thought was good—a period when I was happy--was actually just wasted time. I invested so much in those seven years, and for what? For nothing.
B: Falling in love is never a waste of time. And as for investing time in it, you can’t treat love as an investment. An investment is something you make with knowledge aforethought.

La mia proposta:

B: Un investimento è una cosa che fai con conoscenza premeditata.

Cerco soluzioni migliori. Grazie.
