    Husband-to-be wants prenuptial agreement.. thoughts?

    Our wedding will be on first quarter of next year, he already proposed and I already said yes.
    Everything has been going well in our relationship but just a few days ago, he stunned me by asking me to sign a prenuptial agreement. Honestly I feel offended because I feel like he thinks Iím going to try and run off with his assets in the future. If that's how he thinks of me, then he probably should not marry me. He said he trusts me and knows I wouldn't do that, but he also said he has to protect himself in case anything goes south between us in the future. Not sure what to think about it. Any thoughts on that?

    Hmm... that's hard. I get where you're coming from. Well, you should discuss that with you fiance and open up how it makes you feel having to sign a pre-nup agreement. But honestly, there's nothing much you can do but to agree with it. What's a valid reason for you not to, anyway?

    Well, it's shocking at first.. I mean I get your point.. you're probably thinking that he doesn't trust you enough for wanting to have a pre-nuptial agreement. But later on, you will have to agree to his conditions anyway, because to be honest, there's really nothing wrong with having that agreement. If you really love him, you will have to accept it.

    Honestly, I don't think anything is wrong with it. It's just him being smart, and making sure he's protected.

    Jeez, kind of rips the romance out of the picture, at least temporarily. But make sure to talk about it before the wedding. Never jump into something that you're doubtful with.

    Put yourself on his shoes. Try to understand where he is coming from. Be honest with each other and always communicate your feelings to him. So even if the agreement pushes through, he knows how you feel about it and you've done everything you could to let him know how you feel.

    This is just my opinion, but pre-nup is just showing upfront that you think there should be an exit plan from the marriage.

    It's almost like saying "listen, I know this might fail at some point..."
    Then again, seems to work out for a lot of people out there so I'm not against that, I just wouldn't sign one myself.

    If my man wants for us to sign one, why not? It's okay, it will benefit both parties. I'll just make sure to have my last will and testament...it's not that much..but a fair gift to my son.

    Unless one of you has soooo much money or is crazy rich, I don't see the point.

    I am not in favor of prenup, cos that would mean that he doesnt trust me, and that he suspects me because he's thinking of divorce in advance. Why enter to a covenant and just protect yourself from your partner? God's intended marriage to be is lifetime. If he suspects my intention then we shouldnt get married in the first place.

    That's a bummer.. I would personally get offended by that.
