Initially I would say no, but there are situations that may require it.

I believe that when you marry someone, you are excepting everything...all their faults and problems along with all the good. Trust is the most important thing in a relationship, and for someone to agree to marry you, but then ask for a pre-nup, would suggest that there is NO trust. However, I guess there are exeptions to every rule. If I was a single mother, taking care of my children alone, and I had my own home and savings, the was going to re-marry, I may consider a pre-nup for protection for my kids.

Difficult question!! Makes you think.

Good One Mel!

I'm going to sound very unromantic here, but I'm not really a romantic person so heh. I don't think there is anything wrong with them at all and they are, in some cases, very necessary. I don't think it has anything to do with trust or love, only about protecting yourself. I know no one goes into a marriage assuming it will fail but I think it's rather naive to think it could never happen.
Yes, when you are married then you share the good along with the problems, but if the marriage were to end that's where the sharing ends too. IMO.

I honestly would not want to, at all, but like jenn_logan said, there are situations where it might be smart to do so. so my answer is "no", unless there were special circumstances.

I wouldn't and I wouldn't marry someone that asked me to do so. I think getting married is taking a leap of faith and I think that you have to put that faith in the other person and hope that they wouldn't do something bad in a divorce situation.
