    So lets make a deal, me and you.

    I earn less than you do. I have less capital.

    At some point in the future, I want half of our combined wealth.

    What are the chances I will ask for this? About 35%.

    Sound like a good idea?

    Honestly why do people enter marriages without a prenup? I don't get it. Are they just too afraid to ask?

    My husband and I got a prenup because my mother pretty much demanded that I get one done, and we figured anything for a quiet life.

    At the time though in the UK they weren't legally binding (not sure if that has changed in more recently years) and the solicitor told me that although the prenup would be taken into consideration by a judge if we should get a divorce, I shouldn't count on it being taken 100% seriously.

    They are still pretty meaningless -famously seeming to only benefit rich wives. However, some top firms will offer you ante-nuptial contract failure insurance.

    I guess the person who earns less might feel like the person asking for it doesn't trust them or thinks badly of them and believes they'll steal their money. Or they might not see the point of it because they're in love and think their marriage will last forever

    Or 'at least half',* in the case of 'the fairer sex' :rolleyes:
