What is your opinion on a prenup?
How would you feel if you significant other asked for one?
I don't really know if I am for or against them! I wanna hear what others think.

Keep in mind that prenups are drawn up individually. So they can vary quite a bit! They also get thrown out by the judge quite a bit, urgh.
Anyway. I think it's a fine idea, and a natural result of marriage laws today. If I understand right, divorce settlements used to very much matter on how the spouses acted, who wronged who. I spoke to one attorney here, Johnn Gunn from the Gunn Firm in Marietta, he gave an example of a woman who cheated, gave her husband herpes, and walked away with half the assets plus the furniture because the husband was mean in trial.
Apparently, being given in incurable STD by your spouse has a way of highly upsetting people. Who knew! Apparently not the judge.
And things like alimony. He also gave an example of the Cobb County (just outside Atlanta) family court judges being sat down for a question event, and they were given a divorce situation. One said he'd award alimony. Another said the woman could get a job and didn't deserve alimony.
Family court is just a mindfield, especially for men. Prenups are a sane precaution.0
