People, initially behind you, that cross the solid white line when entering the freeway, then speed up and won't let you over.

A car in each lane, each going the same slow speed right next to each other, forming an impenetrable wall.

I would expect a prenup to contain whatever both parties agree to. Anything else seems dumb.

Reading a little more about it now and it seems like you're right...thank god

I promise not to taint your Columbia girlfriend, prenup or not!

Haha thank you.  ;)

So is there any way to sign some sort of agreement that the money you make during marriage is safe?  In other words, if you get divorced, assuming you don't have kids, you both keep whatever money you've made, and the other person has no claim to it?  Now the e is after my girl, I'm even more worried than before.

Oh and guys, so nice to know I was missed here...just so I could change the thread title  >:(

Do we get an explanation for your extended absence?  And why hasn't the thread title changed to MTG's suggestion?  :P

I don't mean to exclude you, but short of buying people plane tickets, I don't know what my options are.

We could do the dinner in Boston instead.  ;)

Plenty of good food in Boston, not as convenient for those of us in Chicago, though.

But, I'm glad that somebody noticed that post. 

Haha, no one responded yet?  I would definitely go if I were there.

My bf and I are definitely planning on a prenup...

It'll basically say that anything I acquire during the course of our marriage through inheritance will remain mine - for example my parents beach house. Additionally my parents have things in mine and my sisters name in case of any legal action taken against them (my dad is a doctor) - the prenup will protect that stuff too. Basically, I'd be coming into the marriage with more than he would be... so I'd want to protect that stuff, and he knows he has no claim to any of it. He (currently) wants a prenup as well, he basically said he'd make me sign one to protect my assets just in case.

He also wants a clause that says something to the affect of "if adultery is to blame for the dissolution of the marriage, the adulterer gets less than 50% of assets acquired during the marriage" I don't know how much less than 50% but since I don't think it (cheating) will be an issue for me... what do I care.

prenups can't do this. at least not in any state i am aware of. you can only dispose of assets you have before you get married, not things you inherit or earn after you are married.

Well sh*t im never getting married then.

Yeah, that's a deal-breaker for me....I'll have to look into this
