I just needed some advice, help, suggestions ETC. I am a 42 yo man, I make in excess of 300K a year own my own house, previously married and divorced with a 17 yo son, all the toys boats , sea doos, good retirement IRA, I am not bragging just giving you some info so you can help me to make the best decision. My wife to be is really mad at me now because I suggested that we should do one of these. She doesnt have any of the above items listed. I dont feel comfortable getting married again without this and she might not with this. I need some help or maybe some phrase or comment that will help her to understand that it is nothing personal against her. I got divorced about 15 years ago and my ex got all of my nothing. I cant imagine if I had WhatI have now back then . Anyways I hope to get someone with the same experiences with some good sound advice. Thanks

If you don't trust her, why would you marry her? If you trust her but aren't completely confident it will work this time, why are you marrying her? Are you more committed to her or to your stuff? If you're not sure, then you're probably not committed enough to ensure it will last. I'm not saying this to be cruel, but you did ask, so that's my opinion. Maybe instead of getting a prenup, you should wait a while. If it's for real, you will over time discover that you're not so concerned about losing possessions. If it isn't, then you can end it without having lost them.
