After seeing a couple marriages of friends hit the fan and reading a fellow poster's situation with the wife, I wanna ask what you all feel about a pre-nup.
Marriage is hard and I've seen people get juked financially in a divorce, but asking the person you love to sign a pre-nup has GOTTA be awkward.
"Yeah baby, I love you, but just in case it doesn't work out, and I have a feeling it might not, sign on the dotted line."
Jeez. That's what it sounds like anyways, but isn't protecting yourself smart?
Do you HAVE to get a lawyer for a pre-nup or can you just type something up in Word and keep for your records? I can't believe I'm even thinking about this because I need a fiancee first, but just curious.
