If you're dating someone and it's nearing the marriage stage, if your S/O was OK with getting married but insisted on a prenup, would you go through with it?

No, I would not. I mean if I'm in a relationship and it's nearing the stage of marriage
then the guy should know me pretty well by that point. Well enough to know,
I could care less about money and I'm more of a giver then a taker. So, if
we ever got divorced he could have whatever he wanted, has long as I get
my personal belongings and my dog, he can have everything else. If I ever get married,
it would because we love each other, not for fincial reasons. So, if we ended up divorcing
there wouldn't be anything materielistic that could replace the one thing I wanted the
most and that would be the man I married. So, if it didn't work out, I would just walk away.
I wouldn't want his money and if he was gonna marry me, he should know that.
Besides, if he's asking for prenup "in case" of divorce. I would take that as red flag,
that he doesn't think our relationship will last, because (in my opinion) that's a strange
question to ask somebody. "Will you marry, but before you say yes. Just sign
on the dotted line, it's prenup in case we get divorced" Who does that? Why do that?
The bottom line, if two people get married it's for love and (hopefully) the right reasons.
It which case, they'd be able to get through any adversity together and divorce
wouldn't be an issue. But, if they marry for the wrong reasons, then I suppose it's
Also, prenup's should only be for people who make millions of dollars. I mean, if she
works at the prefume conuter at Macy's and he's a machanic at autobody repair shop.
Honestly, how much money are they really going to accumulate? Not enough for either
one to want a prenup, because what would they stand to lose fincinally? What a
beat up car and an apartment, unless you have A LOT to lose fincially, I think it's a bad idea.
