Quoting KendallsMommee:I agree.
But if I had millions and finance had nothing, I might feel differently.
I wouldn't marry someone who asked for a prenup, not because I'm naive and think divorce never happens (although it is extremely unlikely in our case), but because I wouldn't marry someone who thought so little of my character that he thinks I would go after his money and earnings.
The one exception is previous debt - there are rare circumstances where debt accumulated prior to the relationship can be prevented from falling on stepchildren and such.
I think prenups can be practical but then I've never been asked to sign one. I suppose there is a bit of a discrepancy between "for better or worse... Til death do us part" and, "Oh hey, just in case this doesn't work out..."
I guess I'm just not qualified to give that question a definitive answer.
I have fire insurance. I hope I never have to use it. Knowing I have it gives me peace of mind. It's the same principle.
no... considering how communication in marriage breaks down so easily and causes so many to just give up... a prenup is a smart investment not only financially but if there were ever children in the picture. nothing wronv with having a form of protection in case the marriage does not work.
