Basically an agreement made before marriage that says what happens to your assets in the event the marriage fails. Would you sign one with your partner?
Would you consider signing a prenup?

Yes for sure. Any girl who says she wouldn't is disproving fact that she is marrying for 'true love' like she surely mentioned in another question if it asked for what she is marrying. Things don't always work out. We need to plan for that so that things don't end poorly and most of our money ends up going to lawyers.9
I have no problem signing a pre-nup, as long as it's fair. Don't expect a woman to stay home and care for the kids and then get divorced and be paid no compensation for the lost years of earning. A fair agreement about wealth brought forward is fine, detailing the arrangements in case you divorce is fine, but it has to be fair.1

I'd definitely sigh a prenup4
I'm not getting married without one lmao.4
I would. Makes no difference to me. As long as he cares for any kids we might have, I don't need his shit.0
Sure thing. I have no problem with that.3
I wouldn't get married without one.1
I have a prenup but it's very basic.2
During my very very brief engagement, I actually wanted a prenup. But he insisted on not having one. Even though he's worth a hell of a lot more than I am.
I think they're just common sense. You can't pretend 50% of marriages don't end in divorce. Hope he doesn't get fucked over by whoever he actually marries.0
Yeah I would.. I won't have any intention to keep his money when I won't have the person I love.. 😕 we'll just part our ways..
Unless he cheats.. then I'll be dragging him to court for every penny he's got0
I don't think so.
A prenup in our marriages... religious /traditional usually lists different things.. not financial.. I am not sure. I would have to learn more about it.
No. why would i self prophecise divorce on my marriage? I dont go into a marriage thinking of divorce or that this is " mine" and this is "his" but its " Ours". That mind set is why the nuclear family is dying.0
Wouldn't even think about getting married without one1
To me that says you believe your marriage is going to fail. So no.0
I would sign one, however I have always thought about situations where the woman gets pregnant and then has to quit her job because majority of the time it's the mother who takes care of the kids by staying home. It worries me that if things go bad, in a situation like that, that perhaps your life goes on pause or you have to start your career again to support yourself and the guy just goes on living his with no road bump. Once again I haven't gotten married so I could be very wrong.
When my parents divorced, my father walked off with my mums 3-4 million dollars and left our life's and that was my mums. So to save that it makes sense to sign it.0

I understand the prenup and why you'd want it and I understand divorce rates are high. But in my opinion and the statistics support that opinion. If you get a prenup the likelihood of you getting a divorce goes up substantially. It's essentially saying, i dont think this will work and i dont want to risk it so I'm getting this contract for when it fails.
If you're all in, then be all in. Getting a prenup is leaving one foot out the door. If we dont want to be screwed in the event of a divorce, then a better change would be through what the laws of divorce entail. Like a cap for how long someone is required to pay alimony if any. And changing how child support system works. Having a contract for who pays for what, so whoever is paying isn't just handing over money, but money orders.0
The Netherlands passed a law making prenups the default type of marriage contract. This should be the law everywhere. Yes I would sign one.3
Prenups are for if you have a lot of money or assests pre marriage but marriage in itself mrans both of you putting all you have into your union fot benefit, fulfillment of both partners. If a partner who was with you from the start and helped support you every step of the way to financial success large or small then together you both built that and is naturally entitled to as much as half or less but the likes of a gold digger who marries a guy for money deserves little or none, like if you married Ted Turner you didn't have to change no diapers or wait tables.0
No, I would not. A prenuptial agreement offers an "easy way out". If I'm getting married, then why am I putting that legal barrier around things? Two don't become one if that's the case. There is absolutely no way that I would sign a prenup.0
Yeah but judges can toss them out at their discretion so I'm not sure they offer that much protection.0
sure why not0
Yes, of course.1
I would do I anyway for business purposes. I am self-employed and about to start my own business. In case I fuck up I don't want her to be responsible for that.0
If you don't sign a prenup in this day and age, you're an idiot. It's getting rarer and rarer that marriages survive all the way through.0
If I have a lot of money when I get married, I'd want to get one.2
no. marriage is for suckers... and women.1
I wouldn't consider marriage to start with, Like I want women to screw me over. Prenup isn't 100% secure you know.0
Of course so the women can't take your money. I notice the feminists commenting on here are expecting the guy to pay out in divorce. Just goes to show that feminism isn't about equality.0
I'd do it depending on the situation0
I wouldn't be opposed to signing a pre-nup but it does make the whole prospect of marriage feel like a business transaction which leaves a sour taste in my mouth.0
If I ever get married than yes.0
Me and my fiance signed one for my wedding next week0
yeah man, i can see myself sneaking in some sexy bdsm rules in there that my wife must submit to me. hahaha that would be fun.1
