    Prenups , Would you sign one ?

    After reading the rent a wife thread it made me wonder ,

    Would anyone here sign a prenup ?

    Personally , i think they are a good idea and would sign one , i don't see it as a trust issue , i see it as a realistic necessity, the same as insurance policies , funeral arrangements etc etc .

    Yeah i know marriage is supposed to be all about love ( cough ) and everyone believes in happily ever after ( cough ) however , its not and when it ends it becomes a business deal in effect to end it basically .

    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    Prenuptual agreements are for people who actually have something to lose in a divorce...

    ^^^ Amen to that, brother.

    The only reason I'd sign a prenup is if I was going into the marriage rich.

    lol Doc , i am too ... and i am not doing it again ...

    lol Dapples , good one .....

    I would of taken half the bills Countybear , but there were no bills or credit cards etc but i have to respectfully disagree with you guys .

    Even if you dont have big money , etc , you have pensions , social security , retirement , bank savings , and all those kinds of things , so depending on your state , you could lose all or a portion of those whether she produces an heir ( baby ) or not and if a spouse
    stays married to you the required amount of years , and meets the other legal requirements it can happen to both men and women .

    I would sign one. What you have before the marriage, money or bills should remain yours (unless previously agreed to share). What you amass during the marriage belongs to both should their be a divorse, money and bills.

    Why even get married if a couple is already anticipating a divorce and how everything will be divided after it? Cohabiting would provide many of the same benefits, without the hassles of paperwork.

    Spoken like someone who has never paid alimony. Jenna, if you do for a living what think you do for a living, then you probably make a lot more money than I do.

    ...and you don't agree with prenuptial agreements...

    So, Jenna... will you marry me?

    Sure! If our LEF discussions are any predictor of what our marriage would be like, you won't have to wait long for your alimony!

    i believe my contract states till death do us part. no need for a prenup.

    I hear what your saying Jenna ( love your puppy tag ) , and i as many others looked at marriage as til death thing , i didnt go into it thinking of when it would be over, but sad reality is , that it isnt always that way . Life has changed , peoples views have changed , our views of life arent like our great great grandparents , times have changed etc etc unfortunately .

    I agree with ya about cohabitating though .

    I guess maybe my lifes lessons have taught me that C.Y.A. really is beneficial and not just for otj either .

    I think signing a pre-nup is a pre-expectation of it not working, and if you go into marriage thinking it is not going to work, then it's not. I'd never sign one. Thats not saying that a marriage entered into with out one is going to work.


    But who knows, if I was rich maybe I would? Hard to say what I'd do in that situation I guess.
