wanabeabee:  This is not your problem to worry about. If your FI wants a prenup, its up to him to get it done. If both parties are in agreement, it can be done in a couple of days.

I am glad you  have seen a lawyer to get independent advice. We have a prenup because I owned my home outright before I met DH. I want this money to go to my children. DH has his own investments to pass on to his children.

When and if your FI presents you with a draft prenup, you will need to see your lawyer again, to make sure it is in your best interests to sign it.

typically it needs to be completed more than 30 days before the wedding, so the parties cannot claim duress later about it being signed and have it thrown out. but you can also do post-nups.  but Julies1949 is correct, this is his choice, so his responsibility.  we have a prenup in our relationship and we were both very pro-active about it.
