Red flags all over the place. I’d sit down and discuss this again and if there is no comfortable compromise then maybe this isn’t a relationship that should turn into a marriage. I don’t see this prenup as a very good start as it is, sadly. A prenup .. to propose? A proposal doesn’t have to be the most romantic but … That’s really absurd. I wish you the best, keep your head up and on your shoulders.

I just read your update, wow. Ignore my last comment and let me just say you are brilliant. I’m glad you made the right call, the situation was insane. Good luck! Keep us updated!

As a UK bee, I don’t “get” prenups, but I guess that’s a factor of growing up in a country where all divorces are no-fault, 50/50 split and prenups aren’t legally binding, if written at all. I was brought up in the knowledge that a marriage is a partnership and as soon as you are married you share absolutely everything. To me it makes the commitment even greater because you have so much more to lose… I get that there are people who take advantage… but surely my partner should know my character well enough or they shouldn’t be proposing… I personally would be so insulted to be handed a contract; to be told he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me… but he doesn’t actually trust me and if it didn’t work out, he wanted to keep his stuff? Nah, do one mate.
