Girls, would you have a problem signing a prenup? Guys, would you feel comfortable asking for one?

Many men cite the gender bias in divorce cases, divorce laws and the statistics which indicate that women are more likely to ask for divorce, get alimony and get custody as reasons why they refuse to marry. Some have suggested proposing a prenup before the marriage while some question whether they do any good. But I wanted to ask both genders two questions:

  • I don't have a problem with it. I'd sign it as long as it's equal. He gets his stuff I get my stuff.


Most Helpful Guy

  • Honestly, a prenup should be a given in today's society, the amount of women that want a divorce for whatever reason and end up with the kids, house, car, money, etc and then get child support on top of that

    He's just being smart by doing this

  • If I had anything significant to my name I'd ask for a prenup but I don't so there was no reason to have one. My husband thought the same way.

  • I'd totally want to sign one. He could even video tape it if he wants. I've heard of some people doing that for proof.

    • You wouldn't be offended or think he's not really committed to the marriage?

    • No. I'd want one too.

  • I'd sign it as long as an infidelity clause is attached. In other words if he slips then the prenup is now invalid. I plan on being very successful and wealthy so I would have a prenup as well. You can be in love and smart at the same time. Mark Zuckerberg had his wife sign a prenup on top of getting married after his IPO. Smart cookie.


What Guys Said 4

  • I would sign one but I have nothing to give, however that could change by the time I am married. Also if the other person does have something to give than I would feel weird not signing it.

  • Funny, my ex asked ME for the pre-nup.

  • I wouldn't marry without one, and I don't see why anybody should be objected to it.

  • The minute someone questions a pre-nup, is the minute you should question their true intentions.

    • You could say the same about the minute someone proposes a prenup.

    • How do you figure?
      The one who proposes a prenup is hardly in it to chop the other person in half.
