I have been dating my fiancé for almost two years now. We are planning on getting married this summer. Several weeks ago he brought up a topic of us signing a prenuptial agreement. As a rational person I agreed that it is something we can look into. He is the CEO of a start up. I’m employed as well, however my financial contribution to our relationship is much less significant than his. When we talked about a prenup, I reasonably agreed that I have no right to his savings or assets he acquired before our marriage. However, I believe whatever we acquire during our marriage should be split in half. And that’s when things turned nasty. He said that in the future, compared to him I won’t be providing any financial contribution to the family. In case we have a child, he said he doesn’t need me taking care of the baby, because he can hire someone to that job, he also said “What… now pregnant women are getting paid for carrying a child?”, and several other not nice things. He said in case we get divorced he can agree to pay out some “unspecified” amount, but “no way” half and half. I, honestly feel sort of down and betrayed right now, because I could never imagine we would have to have conversations like that. I’m not sure what I should do. And whether I should even agree to sign a prenup, because I believe then it will be unfair to me. Thank you for your answers.
