Do You And Your Spouse Have A Prenuptial Agreement?

Do You and Your Spouse Have a Prenuptial Agreement?

The word prenup can ruffle feathers pretty quickly. People have strong opinions on both sides of the matter: some think a prenuptial agreement is essential to a marriage; others say it's a bad omen. We want to know whether or not you have one. Of course, the main pro-prenup argument is that they protect your assets. Divorce is pretty common, so a lot of financial experts recommend it as a practical step in case of the worst. The most common argument against a prenup is that it dooms the marriage.

We're aware of the arguments, but we want to know how it works in practice. Tell us how you came to your decision and how you feel about it now. Do you regret your decision? How did it impact your marriage?

    I wasn't married, but I was in a relationship for three years with property and substantial money in my name (trust fund baby).

    I discussed writing up an agreement with my partner and my solicitor and we all agreed that it was in my best interest in case something happened. In the end, we split and it was as friendly as you could wish for and the agreement wasn't needed, but I'm glad that I know what I need to do in the future.

    We do, because my wife has her parents' funds in her account prior to our marriage. If we split, I want her to know that I'm not interested in splitting what's not ours, so it's a positive for us.

    In a perfect world they wouldn't be needed because people wouldn't try to usurp the assets they should have no right to, so in some cases i see they are needed.

    My wife and i didn't need one as there was no substantial assets prior to us living together/getting married. I'd like to think that even if there was and things ended i would not be the vindictive money grabber that many people tend to be in those circumstances.

    I would not be offended and would not have a problem signing if presented with one, although i would feel uneasy proposing one as it would make me feel like i'm expecting it to fail and i think that is a valid way to feel when being on the receiving end but unless your only in it for the money it should not be a deal breaker.
