I personally don't like the idea of a prenuptial agreement for obvious reasons but I feel I am between a rock and a hard place, I just can't get married without one. Would this be a deal breaker and of so, Please tell me a reasonable explanation.
I am 40.
I represent the third generation of a family business and responsible for a family trust in which my sisters are entitled assets as they opted out of the family business
I have an adopted son in Africa which I will pay for his College expenses
the family business is over 60 years old
I am responsible for 8 people's livelihoods at the business and feel I can't have an interruption of any kind such as a divorce in which someone claimed assets belong to them.
It is the responsibilities and the stakeholders and I can't imagine how I should think it's responsible to put other people at risk. If her feelings change or if she decides she can't handle my lifestyle traveling or if her mother gets sick and she wants to be with her and get a divorce, how can I gamble with other people's futures as well as my own.
if confronted with this circumstance; would you think it's understandable or is it just a black and white thing.
i know it's a turn off but the situation is what it is. If the situation was reversed, what then?
The prenup would but summed up basically like this:
(1) after 10 years of marriage, the wife would be included as 50/50 in the family trust with the husbands share
(2) the wife would never be able to claim any assets to corporation ever including increased value of cooperation over time as its a different legal entity, exception would be liquidation of stock and profit but that decision to liquidate can only be intimated by shareholder (x)
(3) 1.5 MM plus all accumulative interest exclu

Not a turn off to me, it doesn't matter. I don't blame someone for wanting to protect what is theirs and what they have worked for. I don't have a good impression of people who won't sign them.2
