This is so true, whatsupdoc. But in the end they get the lawyers involved and everything else gets muddled and lost in the fray. I don't see that prenujps are necesary but if it makes my lover feel more comfortable then I would sign it.
if i got married i wouldnt ask for them to sign one but i would sign one if they asked me to. im not a gold digger so why would i fear signing one?? i wouldnt. il marry for love eventually not for money.
Yes, b/c I have assets I have worked for & the ability to earn income... I have seen how it works in court & it comes to the money baby...For a female that is self motivated, saavy & well heeled...Heck ya I want a pre nup!
I can appreciate everyone's comments on here however if I ever did get married it wouldn't be for anyone's money so if they asked me sign a prenup I wouldn't even batt an eye lid, it really wouldn't bother me!!!
I know ypu're meant to love nad trust someone completely when you marry them and someone asking you to sign a prenup may offend some however I believe that with the way things are nowdays and current divorce statistics it's not showing a lack of trust when asking to sign a prenup it's merely a formality.
If someones worked hard for their money I don't think they should be at risk of losing that for whatever reason, and because I'd like to believe that if i ever get married it would be forever i also belive that the prenup signed means nothing to me at all, I'm in it for love and persuing dreams of having a family and not the money!!
When I was born, I was butt naked and poor. When I die I'll probably be almost naked (in one of those hospital gowns) and money won't mean much to me then .. Love is something that cannot be bought. Yes you can rent some pretend love and kid yourself, but the real thing has nothing to do with money. If I was madly in love with a man, I would sign anything. And if someone looked at me and said I don't love you, I would give them their space and walk away, not expecting anything. All relationships get tested and challenged, simply because all of us have some personal growth to do.
I absolutely will. I would not proceeed w/ a wedding without one. It protects current and future assets, AND debts. It also puts in place expectations of how things will proceed should the marraige fail. It's not a pleasant thought, but the reality is marraiges don't always work... for various reasons. I would want to know that I am financially protected. It doesn't mean I don't trust my partner, it's just good common sense.
My belief is that if a couple is older, and both have assets, then the view is not if the marriage should work out, at this stage the more likely would be that one would die before the other, a prenup would prevent the children of the living partner trying to usurp the deceased legal heirs from their inheritance.
However, a younger couple who would be having children together should be building their children's inheritance jointly.
