Nope. Firmly not for the prenup === BUT, there is a HUGE difference between me and someone who has had a previous marriage or has kids. My Fiance and I have an equal amount (just about – I may have very slightly more) and my earning capacity is higher. Oh well. He is worth it if he wants half of what I make and he already left me as his life insurance beneficiary (I am not even offically his wife). We take care of each other. And there is no need for a prenup at the start of our life.

My Fiance runs his family business and his mom has talked about us having a prenup.  FI’s older sister had one when she got married.  I have no problem with it – this business was in his family long before I came along.  The weird thing is that Fiance doesn’t want it.  I have a feeling we’ll have to get one just to keep his mom quiet.

I don’t look at it as planning for divorce.  If his business were sued then I would not be involved which is how it should be seeing that I am not involved in the business.

I HATE the idea of it because I don’t want to think at all about the possibility of divorce, but I understand the logic.  FI wants to get one because he stands to inherit quite a bit.  When he first brought it up, I cried every time.  I have managed not to cry reading this thread, so I’m making progress! 🙂

I told him that he has to do all of the work for it – I’ve got enough on my plate.  I also feel (and he agrees) that if he gets the inheritance and then we make a joint decision to spend it, that what we spent it on becomes ours, not just his.  We’ll see how this goes when (really, if) he actually goes through with it.

I’d be pretty upset if my current fiance brought it up because I don’t feel like he has that much to protect. But if I was marrying someone who came from family money or owned a really successful business or something, maybe I’d be OK with it. Anything we aquired while together though, regardless of who actually paid for it, should be jointly held. Even if we had wildly different incomes (which we don’t) since in my opinion the point of marriage is to join lives.
