Do you have one? WOuld you ever enter into one? Why/Why not? Do you think prenuptial agreements are a neccessity in contemporary society considering the high divorce rate? Or should they be made obsolete? Do you think there is a place for them in a marriage based on love and commitment?

I don't know about a prenuptial agreement but I do believe people should sign a paper stating what they bring into a marriage so that if it doesn't work out all that was yours before gows back to you and all that is accumulated after you are together regardless if you are actually married or not gets divided equaly.

I completely agree with you. I think individuals need to be protected and some sort of mutual agreement should be entered into protecting previously acquired property, money and assets.

I don't have one, and would never get one. I think that is a way of showing that you are not confident that the marriage will work. If you plan on being together forever, then why have one?

I don't have one. It depends on individual choice whether you want to have a prenuptial agreement or not. Basically, I think that only when there is a lack fo trust and faith between the couple, you have the agreement. It also means that the couple don't expect the marriage to last, and that they will break off if things don't work out.

I wouldn't do it for me regardless of how good or bad it is. I'd rather pick the person I want to be with. I think people should have their own choice about who the want to spend their lives with.
