so i will be signing a pre-nup before tying the knot with SO. i’ve always known that i would have to as his family is very wealthy and SO has 2 homes, savings, and retirement accounts all accquired before we met. (the same as peach and SO’s brother) the thing is…i might have no clue what i am talking about, but the house we live in (where we plan to live in forever and raise our kids in) he bought and completely remodeled before we met, but i contribute every month (we split everything half and half) towards the mortgage/utilities. which is 100% fine i do not and never have expected a free ride, but does this mean if we do divorce then it will be like i was paying “rent” the whole time?
like i said before, i am fine with signing, i just want to know exactly what i am signing. and furthermore, what happens if we have children in the next 3 years and divorce in say…10 years. with the house being his in the pre-nup. would the children have to move out of the home they grew up in? or just me and the courts would give my kids to SO because he has the house?
crazy questions i know. and i know pre-nups aren’t romantic, but neither is fighting over money years down the road when you’re heartbroken. i do think that we will be together forever. not because of me, but becuase of him. i believe that there is one person in a relationship that is the rock and the other is the free-spirit. i am the free-spirit and i he is the rock, the fighter.
just wanted to know your thoughts bees 🙂
