Would you be offended if a guy asked you to sign a pre-nuptial agreement?

Lets say that you are truly and madly in love with this rich guy. And it has nothing to do with his money. The guy falls on his knees and ask you to marry him. You say "Yes". He then inform you that he can only marry you if you sign a pre-nuptial agreement. Would you be hurt and offended? Would you be so hurt that you would not marry him?

If the guy was so filthy rich, I'd probably be surprised if we don't sign a prenup before the marriage. If the terms of the agreement are reasonable then why not? I'd probably do the same thing in his place. I think that sigining a prenup doesn't mean that he loves or trust me less. He's just being practical and cautious and I like those qualities in a guy.

Of course I will be hurt and offended. A pre-nuptial agreement is truly insulting, but that's how it is with rich people. Most of them find it hard to trust, thinking that other people are just interested in their money. So if this happens to me I'll still decide to marry him. It will hurt a lot at first but my love for him will prove in the end that Im worth his love, trust and confidence.

No I would not be offended if a guy asked me to sign a pre-nuptial agreement as I believe that it is only fair these days for both men and woman to protect their assets, and so if I truly love him it would not worry me at all, and I certainly would not feel hurt. I would sign the agreement and marry the him.

i would not be so much hurt as angry. i would be very mad if i didnt get half of his money. lol. just joking . i dont think i would like to sign a pre-nup. what if we had children and he wouldnt provide for them. howver i can undestand why people do want one signed. i think the answer would be that he provides for you after or you split up but you dont get half or most of his money.

I believe I would be hurt too - I will think that asking me to sign a pre-nup would translate into his lack of faith in my love. But then, after a few seconds, I know I will sign it - willingly and happily. No price is too great to be with the one I love, after all.^^

No not at all...especially if the guy become so rich because he's got a business...It's also simply because I don't want to be liable if the business's gone bankrupt or anything like that.. Anyway if he loves me as much as I love him He'll give me enogh to survive...So I'll still marry him...xx

I probably would be insulted, thinking that he doesn't trust me at all and only thinks that I'd be marrying him for his money although I understand other people are doing that. And I won't marry him at all if all he thinks is his money.

Before making any further decision, I must hear first his reasons for feeling for the need for a pre-nuptial agreement before we get married. After that, I will have to know the terms, the inclusions and exclusions thereof. If everything sounds okay, there is no reason why such a condition will hinder us from getting married. However, if the terms thereof is very disadvantageous or quite degrading, I will try to see first if we can work it out before calling if off.
