    NO way, by him asking me to sign one in a way is saying he doesn't trust me and doesn't think the marriage will last

    I dont have one, but I can understand why people get them and I think a lot of the time, it is a SMART idea.

    I look at prenups completely differently.

    I see them as insuring your future no matter what could happen. I think it is smart. Yeah, you might go in believing it will last forever, and with every intention.. but you just never know what could happen.

    I also don't see it as HE has to ask... Women can ask for one as well to insure themselves. Women are allowed to protect their finances just as much as men.

    I see prenups as a potential really smart move.

    Hell no! DH wanted one in the beginning but after I told him that having a pre nup was like planning for a divorce, he agreed and we didnt do it. But heaven forbid that we ever do, we have a mutual agreement that we each leave with what we came in with and anything we bought together we would divide after.

    The ONLY reason I'll get one is so that DB doesn't get screwed out of his share of his family's company.

    His parents won't pass it on to him or his brother if they don't have pre-nups..... which, from a business standpoint I completely understand and agree with.

    DB has said he wanted one. I was pissed but my friend and I talked about it and it happens all the time. So I told him:

    "That is fine. You can keep your Pension....and what you make now....but anything that I make in the future over what I make now I will be entitled to." Well basically, I still have an entry level job and plan on getting my masters soon- so I will be actually making a lot more money in the next 10 years whereas he might not be.

    So that made my point :-)

    I would sign one, but DH and I had nothing to our names to protect so we didn't.
