@jackndiane: Honestly, and openly. Very straitforward.

@futuremrshc: Agreed. Just say you need to talk about finances. And that’s definitely filed under finances.

I would just flat out ask.

Neither or us wanted a prenup, but I made sure to bring it up just in case he felt differently then I do.

@jackndiane: I came right out with it. “I wouldn’t get married to a man who wouldn’t sign a pre-nup” My now DH said, “I figured, plus we’re never getting divorced”. That was it.  I think more women get offended by it then men.

That would be hard for me to bring up as well.

I’d probably find a movie where the characters did/said something with a pre-nup and use it as a jumping off point.

Just make sure to give him enough time to get a lawyer of his own and look over your prenup.

Just say, “To protect both of our interests, I’d like to discuss signing a prenup.” I’m sure he’ll be fine with it! I’m always puzzled why people get so pissy over prenups. If you’re in it for the long haul, it won’t matter, and if you’re not in it for the long haul, that aint yo stuff to take! I’d have been totally fine if my FI had wanted one.
