    Thank you
    Definitely a question for an experienced attorney.

    Pre nup is to help protect assets gotten before you marry. I am not sure the visa rules change that. The state that you reside in is the state that you should have a prenup.

    Do either of you have assets that you want to protect. What exactly do you want to achieve with this prenup.

    It’s still a lot more likely than plenty of other things we insure against.

    Statistics say otherwise. And if it’s a Kardashian I’m marrying, that’s the rare scenario in which I won’t be asking for a prenup.

    Can’t argue with that. That’s like saying driving safely is much more important than having good auto insurance.

    I don't have a prenup. I married with a 7-figure net worth, maybe 100X my wife's net worth. After we married I put all of my assets in joint accounts (except the retirement accounts that can't be converted). It's our money now. I wouldn't have married if I wanted it any other way.

    I stopped worrying about myself and my money. I just want to take care of her.

    A prenup is an example of cognitive dissonance. One makes a promise for life while simultaneously preparing documents to handle the dissolution of the relationship. That makes no sense to me.

    Just don't get married. It isn't necessary.

    We both earn a decent living, and we discussed a prenup pre wedding. It was... stressful, but it helped up settle somethings (mostly just how to talk to each other, ha) before we wed. Neither has family money, both had and still has good earning potential.

    We didn't have the funds nor wherewithall to do "it right" before the wedding, and hire 2 law firms to advise us both, etc.

    But it helped us before hand to talk. I don't recall, but I'm sure there were tears and stress. If either of us were to marry now, we'd both certainly discuss it, and I wouldn't marry without one.

    Of course the kids are going to find out the family handcuffs when the kids try to get married.
