An even better question is why someone want to marry a lying, conniving snake, in the first place?
Just because there is a pre-nup, does not preclude the spouse from contributing money to the marriage. If the amount of money is sizable, then the principle is held in trust, and one can live off the interest.
Inheritances are exempt from the mutual assests considered in a divorce action. Well, they used to be. We don't know how the document was written up. It could have been worded to avoid a fight between the children in case of death. Wills can be successfully challenged. Just look at the mess Anna Nicole Smith went through.
Always remember that the love of money is the root of all evil.

Look...... some people have entered a marriage on good footing, or good motives, however ? NONE of US know what's truly in a person's mind or heart, and no matter how many year you may know someone, we really don't.
Only GOD knows what is in a person's mind or heart.
Some devious , dishonest, people can hide their true heart, thoughts, motives, character every well over the course of years and decades, and courtship does not necessarily is going to let you know what that person is all about.
Those who take the institutive in getting a prenup truly want to make the marriage work ( at least for the most part ).
Unfortunately in todays world, someone's word is not enough anymore, and would you enter a muli - BILLION contract with someone or some company just by their word ? without getting legal protection financially or legally ?
In todays world, a Prenup is as prudent and important, as a will.
