- If you have to get into Prenup that means you don’t trust your partner.. Marriage is human and emotional matter, don’t connect it to stupid TC, net worth etc.. @op, If you have prenup thoughts, don’t get married!
- Yeah it may sounds stupid to few intelligent people but The problem is, if you get into marriage with an agreement that is not a marriage but a contract.
Why would you bother in that case? Just go to strip clubs, hookers and Restaurants as I believe you don’t see any emotional sentiments anyway, do you?
- Why are you trying to pull the wool over our eyes? Marriage is already a contract even if you don’t personally sign a prenup. The government has already signed a default version of that contract for you, specifying things like alimony, property division, child support, responsibilities, etc. in the event of a divorce. You can pretend it doesn’t exist because nobody brings it to your attention during the wedding, but ignoring it doesn’t make it disappear.
If you believe in pure love without contracts, then better don’t get married. Otherwise, “just go to strip clubs, hookers and Restaurants (???)”.
- Clinical psychotherapist, Mia Adler Ozair, lists "Thou Shalt Not Mention the ‘D’ Word" as one of his ten marriage commandments. "If you are serious about wanting to build a long-lasting, loving relationship, then [divorce] can simply not enter the vocabulary in a relationship," Ozair says. "Trust is built by knowing that regular marital issues that arise during the course of all relationships will be met with a true desire to communicate." The threat of leaving, or that one or both of you might opt out of the marriage, creates a hostile environment for trust and love to flourish.
- If you go into a marriage with that mindset guy are doomed. Just because someone cheats doesn’t mean you get divorced. You try to work through it. When you get married there is no more mine it becomes we. I know it may seem cheesy and old fashioned but having that mindset will ensure your marriage is on a solid foundation. Every single marriage/relationship has major struggles that could warrant divorce. The difference between those couples that stay together and those that don’t is a willingness to work things out. Of course I am not talking a abuse. Most couples doesn’t divorce for those reasons.
- Both men and women can make high salaries these days. It makes sense to protect both the husband and wife.
- It depends. If you both have your own assets at the time, it’s a good idea. If you have an imbalance of assets, I’ve seen it backfire (since it’s meant to protect that person’s assets. If you have very few assets, there’s no point unless you want to stipulate other conditions in the event of separation. All traditional Jewish weddings have this in their marriage contract, which was designed to protect women, their rights and standing in the community, and give them an income to live off in the event that they separated.
- Not really. Why should it be joint? Separate finances and joint expenses based on mutual agreement is the way to go.
Think of it this way: “Why would one spouse be entitled to the appreciation of the assets of the other?” A stock or real estate may go 50% up before divorce and then 50% down after a divorce without any of the spouses contributing to these changes of value. Why should any redistribution happen? Communal property and alimony are the biggest scams ever. Does your employer pay you alimony when you decide to leave and end the business relationship?
- I see it differently. My spouse does things so I can do different ones. By putting my time into the investment, I got that gain—with her help. If you buy a house and she does all of the maintenance and such, keeping it in good shape, who gets the money then? You for choosing it or her for maintaining it in a state where it can be sold? Your argument doesn’t hold any water.
While I wouldn’t do one myself, I completely understand having assets from before the marriage remain individual assets.
But Jeff, in his case, I think you’re wrong.
- How about getting married in your home country and not registering it in the US? This obviously won’t work for common law marriage states though.
- Cisco HdhevecudHow does this work? You marry in your home country but live in the US. Which implies you are living in the US on a visa. How is your SO living with you? On a dependent visa as your SO? Maybe your SO is a US citizen, then not “registering it”?
Also still sounds like fraud when you fill in legal paperwork (like USCIS/tax stuff) saying you are unmarried.
- If you are in India never marry Indian girls as they usually file fake cases on men and usually marry to get GC in US else for other girls obviously... we are living in the era of feminism and you will be punished for no reason if women think so...

- LinkedIn MSDI43It depends. In California any marriage lasting more than 10 years invalidates any prenup arrangements anyways. If you're getting married and you don't think you can make it to 10 years then that's your first problem right there.
- RealSelf / DesignJIGJOGJAGmoreDepends on what state you live in. In CA whatever assets you bring into marriage remains yours after and everything else is split 50/50.
- Damn thank you guys. I was always of the opinion you should but my friends say I’m crazy lol
