Oh my gosh! I would be so offended if my Future Mother-In-Law did that. This is between you and your Fiance, NOT his parents!!!

I suggest that if both you and your Fiance are in agreement to not do one at all. By doing the $25.00 one, you are just feeding into what they want. You are two grown adults and can make your own decisions. Speaking as a parent of grown children, it is none of their business how you live your lives. They should want only what is best for the both of you, and live by your decisions. That doesn’t mean they have to like the decisions, but since you are both grown they should support you in your decisions. Your Fiance needs to have a serious talk with his parents and set them straight; without you around.

Well, any pre-nup you sign (and it has nothing to do with not loving each other), should be looked over by YOUR lawyer as well to make sure that it protects the BOTH of you. Not just him. Also–marriage by it’s definition IS a business contract. 

That being said, if what you are saying is true then they are out of line. What does your Fiance say to them? If there’s any argument about it it’s between him and them, not them and you. Is he a man or a little boy? They’re threatening to take his car away? He clearly has let them control him in the past, and it’s continuing. Red flag.

I am with the PP’s … I think that you and your FH are grown-ups, and if you are that against a pre-nup don’t do one, not even a $25 dollar one. This is just showing them that they can manipulate and control you and this will continue on throughout your lifetime with them. It is time to stand up, and be strong. Stand up for yourselves, even if they try to make it hard for you.
