As of recently, my Uncles health started gong down hill , and looks as if he may not make it beyond the next year or so. That being said, since he does not have any remaining family members alive; except for my father (his brother), and myself. He has decided to divide his entire lifes savings between the both of us. Grateful that he is doing so. My father suggested to myself that my current fiance, and I get a prenuptial agreement arranged before the wedding.
I've hardly considered one before, but with my uncle leaving me a substantial amount of money, and my father stating that all of his estates will be inherited by me for when he passes. That leaves me with enough money to basically not have to work for the remainder of my life.
Last night, my father and I talked quite a bit about why I should get a prenup. I myself see a prenup as stating that I do not trust my bride to be. Though my fathers opinion differed from my own about getting one. I'm wondering if any women out there don't believe in a prenup, or would it highly offend you if asked for one?
I very much love my fiance, and would do anything for her, and her to I. However, money can change people quite a bit, and with us both never being wealthy growing up. I'm starting to consider getting one, but wondering. 1. Would I be in the wrong for asking for one from a relationship standpoint. 2. How would I go upon the idea of asking for one without hurting her emotionally?

I would have absolutely no problem in getting a prenup, however, if I was expected to not work and raise children I would want some compensation for not being able to earn my own money if we broke up. If we're together and you're providing then that's different.
Anyway, I would probably bring the subject up myself if I knew you were inheriting a large amount of money and we were engaged. It would make me very anxious that family and friends would expect the worst and although I don't generally care what others think about me, when it comes to people questioning my love for my partner I like to make things crystal clear.
I'm sure she will have no issues with a prenup if you don't make out you think she's going to steal it and you discuss childcare and career sacrifices. I think that's only fair.0
