On Vox: QotD: My Thoughts on Prenups

Would you sign a prenuptial agreement? Why or why not?
Submitted by Lantastic

I would not sign a prenuptial agreement.  Perhaps I'm a little old fashioned, but I consider marriage one of those sacred institutions.  If you have to sign a prenuptial agreement, then maybe you shouldn't get married at all.  If you cannot trust yourself and your own judgement to make a life changing commitment, then don't get married.

Of course, if both parties agree with it, then why not?  I just know that I would not do such a thing.  If it's going to end, then I'll take my lumps and chalk it up to experience.  But even if I got totally screwed in the end, I still would not go back and sign one.  Would it make the end result any more painless?  Probably not.  In fact, the prenup thing probably plants a disturbing little seed of doubt.  Is it love or just a pay day?
