Would you sign a prenuptial agreement?Page 1 of 33    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33)
So from doing a divorce rate query post recently, I wondered, do prenuptial agreements predisposition the marriage into a possible divorce? Call me old fashioned, but I believe marriage should last an eternity, and I could never marry if I hadn't felt the purest of love. If I was going to get married, I would never sign a prenuptial agreement. Perhaps some might say I'm blinded by my emotions, but what kind of love is it if your materialistic objects and finances are streaming through your head before you've even begun you've journey?

Opinions?

I seriously don't think I'll be getting married. If having to sign a prenup is a requirement, I know I won't be getting married. It's insulting as can be because it says that he believes "money talks" when it comes to me. If that's what he thinks of me, I'm not the girl for him.

Absolutely! It's ashame that society is what it is these days but with the divorce ratio being what it is I think it's a smart move. And, every prenup can be tailored fairly but you just never know....better to be safe than sorry. I agree that it's sad that people have to think in terms like that when marriage is to me a journey of love and not finances...but it's a different world we live in today and you have to be careful...people change over time.

Never, if somebody thinks that little of me and thinks that they need to protect themself from me, they shouldn't be marrying me in the first place because they obviously don't know me at all. Immaterial though cause not planning to get married again anyway.

But it shouldn't take signing it to prove my love. Or my integrity, value, and character.

Listen, I'm a woman that routinely walks away with nothing. I did so in my marriage, and in my last long term relationship. I take my own belongings, my kids and me. Anyone that knows me well enough to marry me would know that. And that's my point. Knowing me would prevent the need for my having to "prove my love".
Shouldn't be getting married of you don't know the person well enough to marry them.

AS it should be, but when it comes to separation/divorce, all that love seems to be tossed aside and can get ugly.

Oh, I can assure you that I know all about that. And that's precisely why I walk away with nothing. It's just not worth it. There aren't any possessions that mean that much to me.

If it came down to it, and I could have things my way, I'd want nothing in joint names. That would remove all the potential for problems.

Here we go again!

I'm lost. If nothing of his is in MY name, what does he have to protect? What need is there for a prenup?

Peace of Mind...at least for Him on His part.....And if nothing is in Your name even more so of a reason to sign it......who knows how you will feel from a year from now...1 yrs 2yrs...10yrs...you may end up disliking him so much you will wanna take his last penny...



To protect my property or his?


Both...equal rights pre-nup ,you both know what you walk away with if it comes to that..

my life back.He came into it with nothing & left much
richer.I would be the one to initiate a pre-nup.Get me
once,shame on you...get me twice...shame on me!.....

Yes I would.

After everything I "gave away" to my ex in our separation agreement (soon to be stamped - divorced), I TOTALLY agree in pre-nups. But I don't plan on marrying again anytime soon.

All a prenup agrees on is that what you had PRIOR to the relationship, stays with you. Not what you build TOGETHER. What's wrong with that? And I'd like to think everyone marries with the intention of it lasting "forever", but you cannot control someone else's actions.

But how can I take what isn't mine, and isn't in my own name? Doesn't matter, I just don't have that kind of fight left in me anymore.
I disliked my last two ex's in a huge way and I didn't take their "last penny".

Maybe I'm just more of a weirdo than I thought. Money doesn't make me feel any better if I've been hurt or done seriously wrong. It's something that comes and goes, and cannot comfort that kind of pain.

My answer stands.

Nope.

I think the suggestion would be an insult to my character... "Since you're one of those nasty, gold digging wenches sign this so you won't take me for everything I have if you decide to leave me." I guess I'm weird too, but if I was married and my husband was cheating on me or something and I left him I wouldn't ask for a dime. It's just not worth it.
