If you partner asked you to sign a prenuptial agreement, would you sign it? Why/why not?

I don't believe that it's a bad thing to ask for or sign, but a lot of people I know have seriously conflicting views. I just wanted to see what the majority of people on here think.

Yes when there's an agreement it's ok to sign

I'd sign. I plan to marry for life but if things went wrong I wouldn't expect anything that he had before I married him. Only a division of marital assets. I don't want his money, I want his love and I wouldn't feel he loves me or trusts me any less if he asked me to sign. He does love me enough to marry me and that's all I would care about. The financial stuff doesn't matter. These agreements are signed for various reasons. It's not always because someone wants to keep money from the other one.

Nope. Trust is the key.

Just because you ask someone to sign a prenuptial agreement, it doesn't mean you don't trust them.

Yes it does,you would never ask your mother or,best friend to sign something like that..

Actually, if it meant I'm risking the things I've built or earned on my own, I would definitely ask them to sign it. It doesn't mean that you don't trust someone, it means that whatever is rightfully yours is safeguarded for the future, and, let's face it, no-one can predict the future. You never know what might happen further down the track.

I've got no doubt that marriage is built on love. But if a marriage falls apart, why should people lose the things they had before entering into the marriage?

I agree with epicurious,if you sign an agreement b4 the most trusting event in your life,thats not saying a lot for your trusting marriage right?marriage is,started and built on trust and if you put a piece of paper between you that says,IF it doesnt work out,you wont get my belongings,marriage shouldnt be built on distrust...

What it says is "If something were to happen further down the track, I want both of us to be protected". It's not saying you distrust someone. Besides, if you love someone, you shouldn't have a problem with signing it. If the marriage lasts, then the agreement never has to come into effect. If, for whatever reason, the relationship turns sour, nobody is worse off.
