Failure to Sign Prenup Reason Not To Get Married

There are many reasons why someone may decide not to get married. When someone has a large estate or children from a previous marriage, it may be a good idea to discuss the possibility of entering into a prenuptial agreement to protect your assets and/or children. What happens when you don't want to sign a prenuptial agreement and your soon to be spouse will not marry you without one? This is something that many couples face especially as more and more people are waiting until later on in life to get married or have children from a previous relationship. The best idea is to make sure that you understand what you are signing and that the Agreement is fair and reasonable. Whether or not you are willing to sign a Prenup or are going to require someone to sign a Prenup before you get married is a decision that only you can make. For some people, it is a deal breaker, as it seems to be with actor, Eddie Murphy and his girlfriend Tracey Edmonds.

my fiance of 5yrs asked me to sign prenup 3 wks before we were due to fly out to las vegas to marry,i refused because it wasnt fair and hadnt enough time to discuss it properley, at first he refused to marry then changed his mind, as a punishment he took me to vegas on a bum-stir he had no intention to marry without one needless to say i left him there and got flight home, it can be necessary but should be discussed,be fair to both and in plenty of time before wedding.
