I have been watching the show The Real. On one episode they were talking about prenups and whether or not a couple should have one or not. 3 out of 5 of the hosts are married so each of them went through and said whether they had one or not. Tamar said that she and Vince didn’t have one, Tamera said she and her husband had one, and Jeannie Mai said that she and her husband had one. I’ve also heard about prenups in the news and on other shows. Each time I’ve heard about them it made me think would I get one or not? Would I sign one if asked?
First off I have never been rich. Ha ha ha!! I was broke when we my husband and I got together. We are a middle class family but I often wonder if we did have a substantial amount of money would a prenup come into play. Often people think that if you ask for a prenuptial agreement that you are setting up for the end of your marriage but when you think about it you always have to protect yourself with the support of lawyers similar to Peters And May. So I definitely think that if I came into my marriage with a bunch of money that I would ask my husband to sign one and I think that I would sign one for him. Alright, I think I would be a bit offended that he didn’t trust that we would be together forever and I think it would be vice versa but I think that in the end, we have to do what’s best for us. I would be honored just the same if he didn’t feel the need to ask for one. I think that I may even offer to sign one as a sign to show that I can be trusted if he had money and I didn’t. I would want to show him that I didn’t want his money and that I am marrying him to be with him. I don’t know maybe I am just weird that way. I think it is important when bringing up a prenup that it is important to let the spouse know that it isn’t a sign of distrust but a way of protecting one’s self cause as we have all seen money can make people go crazy. Personally, I think that as long as you reach out to a qualified team of Los Angeles prenup attorneys or a prenup lawyer in your area, then you can be sure that the prenuptial agreement that you are signing works for both you and your partner.
So my question is would you ask your spouse to sign a prenuptial agreement? Would you be willing to sign one if asked?
