i'm a little confused to what a prenup actually is i get the basic idea but would have to look at the ins and outs but as long as i wouldn;t end up on the streets and any children are taken care of i dont see why not
I would definitely sign a prenup...I definitely would love for my marriage to be successful, but if not, I would want us both to leave the marriage the same way we came into the marriage...If children are involved, the only thing I would want from my ex is for him to remain equally responsible for them...I can take care of myself!!
i would definately sign one! if you worked your butt off your whole life and i come in, we get married and it doesnt work- why should i be entitled to all your stuff?
if we get married, i have kids with you, raise them, take care of them, cook, clean, support you mentally and emotionally and then you go off and cheat on me or something like that... YOU BETTER BELIEVE IM TAKING HALF! hahaha. its hard to say then its a theoretical question.
For me, it isn't about the money-I would prefer to never know about his money and fall in love with who he truly is....I would have to agree with some, as I'm at a point of being anti-marriage-I really do not need a piece of paper to prove my love for someone, the proof would be very evident in my words and actions...In the event that I were to get married again someday-I would be sure to let my special man know there is much more to a marriage than what's in it for me-it's whats in it for us! It is an unfortunate world that we currently live in, causing many of us to be really guarded and/or not being able to trust anyone. I would think that if he would be fearful of being able to trust someone-I would understand that he has probably been burned before...If a prenup would put him more at ease throughout our relationship and it would be a sign showing him that I'm in it for the long haul-and not for all of the wrong reasons-then why not-he'd be worth it!
May a man interject? If I were in the position of wealth I'd bring up the topic of a prenuptual agreement just to gage my lady's response. I feel that if she truly loves me for myself she wouldn't hesitate for a second. If the last statistics that I've seen on marriage are still current, a vast majority of marriages fail within the first 5 years. If we're still going strong by then; I'd tear up the agreement and place her in my will.
If the shoe were on the other foot, I'd sign it in a millisecond. I know who I am and would never marry for any other reason than to spend the rest of my life with the woman that I came to love and cherish. I know others won't agree with me and that is alright. I'm answering with my heart...not theirs.
Of course, love is not a business arrangement, and a woman might feel hurt if she is offering unconditional love, but does not feel that she receives the same in return. She might question his feelings for her. Having said that, I believe that a wealthy person should protect himself, given how many crazy things are done for money. But once again, it is not a prenup per se, it is the way it is written and presented.
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
The lady is savvy.
He took me for a ride. Still trying. And he comes from a wealthy, wealthy family.
Never marry with out a prenup. It is just a hiccup befor the event. Worth it evevrytime.
Hello, My feelings on prenups are as follows. I think they are a valuable way to prove that you are not interested in a person for their money and also protects the interests of both parties as well as for their children, which to me is very important to protect inheritable assets.
Undecided on that one! But here's a thought:
For All those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free", here's an UPDATE for you....Now 80% of women are against marriage, why?? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage! LOL gotta have a sense of humor. Happy Friday
I dont understand these people that think a prenup is expecting failure. It only makes sense to make plans in the event of divorce. Everybody that has ever gotten married believed it would be forever; you canNOT know with certainty, no matter how much you love one another, that you will be together till death do you part; all sorts of things can happen that you cant forsee, and I think its remarkably niaeve to be unable to realize that.
when i was a kid (27 and younger), so wide-eyed and full of lofty ideals that love could cure anything, i thought the idea of a pre-nup was ludicrous. not the case today. i totally would sign one. i don't care how much love and trust we've got between us, one should definitely protect one's finances. if it's *true love* that will last *forever*, signing a legal "just-in-case" form that gives my man added peace of mind is no problem.
For two successful people it's much better to NOT get married and just remain boyfriend/girlfriend similar to the relationship Gene Simmons (who is an extremely shrewd and wealthy businessperson) has. Keeps all options free and open!
I realize this may offend some women but Marriage (and a potential divorce) brings a legal dimension to the relationship that they both cannot control. Greedy lawyers, activist judges, etc. need to be kept at bay.
