It's sad these days that you have to have a pre nup but certainly it is understandable that there are dishonest people out there. If I found the right person I would sign a pre-nup. It works both ways.
oh also i wouldnt go into marriage beliebing it would fail myslef which is why i would sign anything for the person i loved as i new it wouldnt fail but for my partner to have the security of knowing that it was love and not money who kept me by his side religious values or not i think perhaps they cant be a bad thing a the lady do protest too much who says she is offended ... x
i would insist upon signing one....... i wouldnt want my husband for one second to think i was with him just for money hiweve i would also want to have written in this agreement that if he ever cheated on me then i would get everything.... it's a two way street , i am the most loyal person ever and value that over money any day. x x just a pic of me as my profile isnt up yet x
I'm on the fence with this one! I completely agree with member: easymantolove. However, on the other hand I feel it would be a way to prove I'm not just marrying for money. I dunno, I guess if it got to that stage I would hope my partner would know and trust me enough not to have one (based on my own personal values). Maybe I'm just nieve....
How sweet...and naive of you. Pre-nup is a plan. And any good contract includes a "what-if". More than 50% of marriages fail these days. More harm is prolonged when two people are using the asset division portion to really screw tha other. Nothing that says the pre-nup cannot be "put everything in a bucket and split it in half at the end". It is as individual as your relationship. A safety precaution.
I met a guy a few years ago who was looking for attorneys/financial advisor to, get this, "Make sure that my assets are protected in case of a divorce." The asshole was married for 25 years, raised 2 kids with this woman. The little wife doesn't speak english. Oh, if he was dead, she'll get $2M. Is that whacked? Basically, there is an incentive to have him die instead of getting a divorce.
But, Whatsupdoc....I am always a sucker for the romantic. You go Mr! I am cheering for you and yours...
Actually, as a Catholic, I cant sign one as technically the church is not supposed to marry you if one exist as its their belief that you are entering in to the marriage with the belief that it will fail.
There is one exception to the Catholic prenup rule and that has to do with how your estate gets handled.
Question is, have you ever known anyone with a prenup that had a marriage that lasted? I have never heard of one and if that odd one did exist it would be a statistical anomaly.
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.
