If you're looking for outs before you make the commitment, what's the point? You're simply preparing for failure. Not many succeed while preparing for failure...

For most men getting prenups is the fact that in todays world the family court system is heavily stacked in favor for the women, and stacked heavily against men ( who usually get hammered financially in court ) with no thanks to the feminist.
A better way to stop this moral decline and madness is to get rid of NO FAULT DIVORCE.
I know a couple who were married for 25 years, and he was wealthy BEFORE her meet her.
At the end of the marriage, she decided that she " DIDN'T LOVE HIM ANYMORE " but, even in the face of the fact she didn't love him anymore, she wanted his wealth and got half of everything he owned, and that's not right.
She only loved the money and wealth he had, and he had no indication that she was this way or would do this to him years before hand, so ? I don't blame a man who would want to protect his wealth.
People can change over the years, and in most cases, you have no way what they might or might not do, or what is in their heart or motives.
It is not true that you can tell all the time if someone is going to lie, steal, cheat, deceive you, and get over on you, in some cases, you JUST DON"T KNOW.
Some people can be honest, or truthful in the beginning of a marriage, but, at some point can change on you, and you must take measures to protect yourself financially from someone who is out to get every dime out of you by deceitfulness or lying.
That is why we need to get rid of no fault divorce.
I don't think covering your ass is preparing for failure. Being practical has is advantages.
I'm 35, my house is paid for and my son is the beneficiary of my will. That however does not protect that asset from a nasty divorce, should being married not kill me first.
Sure I plan on being careful that my future mate is sincere, and that the relationship is mutual, but assets of a half million are tempting to certain types of people.
