    How did the conversation go? How did your partner react to the idea?

    I've been with my girl for almost 5 years. I truly think we would be one of the rare couples that never divorce. I'm pretty lucky to have her, she treats me better than I have ever seen a woman treat her man. But I still want a prenup, because a lot can change in 10, 20 years...I want to know I'm staying in the marriage because I want to, not because I'm worried about getting financially assfucked.

    Pretty sure most people don't get married expecting to have a divorce - shit happens.

    Most people get married not fully intending to commit for life.

    Do it. Getting a pre nup isn't going in to fail. If anything a pre nup will solidify the marriage and help keep it together.

    If you're a good man or woman, you're doing it to build a solid family unit to build a stable future and provide a good role model for children.

    If you're a shitty woman, you're doing it to live a life of leisure chilling at home while you're provided for, only to later leave the man and get half his shit.

    Having kids and building a solid family unit sounds like a commitment for life to me.

    I agree with your second thought about there being shitty reasons for women to get married tho.

    People change over time though. It's not like the woman is going to be locked into the same mindset from when she was getting married, forever. So make the choice easier for her, take away the economic incentive for divorce and solidify your marriage.

    How do vows go for a prenup wedding?

    "To have and to hold...until sex becomes stale and I cheat on you."

    "For better, or worse...but my "worse" tolerance is pretty low."

    "In sickness and in health...unless it's anything greater than allergies or a cold".

    Yes- she was a bit quiet for a couple of minutes but I explained to her why she should not get ANY of what I own and made prior to her. She understood.

    We are assuming the poster is a man. So shitty men is irrelevant in this discussion.

    C'mon man.

    Because it's not at all common for a rich woman, to marry a poor or middle income man, and then the man leave her and take half the shit. What is a common scenario however, is for low to middle income women, marrying a rich/wealthy man, and taking half his shit.

    I think people get married too early in life never really having lived for themselves first.
