I was skimming an article - not actually reading - about Kate Middleton and Prince William and a prenuptial agreement.

I like to think that love is love and we will all live happily ever after.....

That being said - we have such a high divorce rate....

Would you ever sign a prenup?

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!

would I ever? hmm, if the unthinkable happened to dh and I got remarried then yes. But with dh, no never, and besides we really didn't have anything of value.

ETA, If I were to get remarried I wouldn't necessarily call it a pre-nup, because if I thought I'd need one I wouldn't get married, but I would keep our assets seperate so my assets would stay mine and as a result my childrens to inherit.

We both came into this marriage w/ nothing so, no, I wouldn't have signed anything.

But there are times when I think that prenups are reasonable and not insulting to the other party. Prince William has a family legacy to protect. I would probably sign one when it came to family money or a family business.

Pre nups were actually originally created to protect women. In a time when marriage meant that anything a woman owned was automatically given to the husband once marriage legal.

I always thought I wouldn't sign one but I am not sure. Although I am about to be remarried and if he asked I would be upset and don't think I would sign.

If we were talking about the kinda money they have and the asset's that are involved then yes I would so long as I was being treated fairly in the prenup.

No I wouldn't sign one. It's like planning for the end of the marriage before the marriage has even begun... what kind of chance does the marriage even have if that's the way of thinking?

My husband and also pretty much both had nothing when we moved in together... Well he had some underwear and a truck lol!

Surprisingly my parents had a prenup and my dad got pretty much screwed. She cheated/left, and he ended up re-paying for their whole house from scratch, she got the equivalent of the value of the house, and he paid for all the credit card crap she racked up.
If DH and I ever got divorced I would be more worried about stability of our children's emotional lives (which neither of us could live without), not stupid homes or money.
