    Yes, absolutely.  Mr. G has properties and some investments, I have large investments.  We do plan on buying a home together, and everything will be divided as we see fit, but everything that we had prior to being together will always be seperate.

    For me it is just dooming your marriage. I don’t understand going into a marriage with the assumption that it might not work out. I don’t plan on marrying Mr. Shef f there is even a small part of me that thinks I might need to be worried about dviding our assets.

    @kfricke89: I hear what you’re saying and I know may people feel this way, but I don’t think the motive for people who want this is not “assumption that it may not work out”, but rather being prepared in the case it doesn’t. It’s like marriage insurance. You also don’t buy a home assuming it will be wiped down by a fire, earthquake or hurricane, but you purchase insurance anyways just in case the worst happens. People can and do change, so can relationships.

    I would most likely not agree to sign a prenup, depending on what it said. It would be hard to fit one into my religious and spiritual beliefs of what a marriage is.

    We don’t have anything to protect, but I would have been hurt if Darling Husband had asked me to sign one. I would have done it, but it would have been a shock to me.

    @kfricke89:  basically, what @meliss said.  I’m sure the over 50% of couples that end up divorcing didn’t anticipate that particular end when they married their then spouses. What it ultimately boils down to is that no one can predict the future.  Given the fact that no one can predict the future, doesn’t it make sense to protect yourself against all possibilities (even those we don’t particularly want to think about) whenever feasible?
