Yet my thoughts would be that if you have any doubts, why bother getting married at all?

People do change, and during the courtship period most are putting on their best face. After marriage is when we really get to know the person.

Yep, to many found out the hard way. Plus pren-ups also protect businesses to stay intact, which I am sure the employees appreciate! How many businesses have been ruined and liquidated just to pay the ex?

" After marriage is when we really get to know the person. " .....

And even after years and decades of marriage, some still don't know the person they married.

There are people who are evil and devious to the core, but, are very good at hiding it from the rest of the world.

Correct. Someone going into a marriage, may not see things which should raise red flags. Men as well as women can be gold diggers, never mind just plain nuts.

It took 13 posts before this rational statement was made. Also people are in denial about real faults that the other person has. "He tells me he won't drink as much after we get married." "I know she cheated on me while we were dating but she wouldn't do that if she had a ring on her finger." And on and on...

At any rate, prenups are mostly hot-air. Any entry-level attorney can get one nullified in court.
