    Hi all,

    Getting married in June, looking at prenups as I have quite a bit of property that I want to keep if things go wrong.

    Been together for 15 years, 2 kids, so I suppose I'm pretty *** swearing should be fully starred out, especially that word *** already but want to know if anyone here created pre-nups, or how I can put measures in to reducing the financial raping I will no doubt get.

    I sense the trust here is strong.

    15 years, 2 kids, deciding to get married, and you are still unsure of your relationship? Yikes.

    Also, pre-nups aren't valid in the UK, sorry dude.

    If you're looking a prenup then the marriage is over before it has begun. Lack of trust will kill it off.

    Finally, a man with common sense who doesn't channel thoughts through his shaft.

    None of that means things can't go wrong, strange things happen once they have you locked down, including less naked wrestling according to studies.

    as you have been together for 15 years and have two kids you are pretty screwed if you separate anyway.

    Oh come on, 15 years, 2 kids and you still have trust issues? Some times I can understand a prenup but this isn't one of them.

    How is protecting ones assets a trust issue exactly? I wonder just how many men thought everything would be grand and are now faced with working till they're 67 or whatever because they didn't realise people can and do change over time.

    I've been with my OH over 16yrs now. Not married....

    We've seen a number of long term (10+ yr) relationships end really quickly after getting married. It's as if "having" to stay together because of a piece of paper ruins the "wanting" to be together.

    Prenups aren't legally binding nor enforceable in the UK, to stop people like you doing what you're trying to do. A divorce court will ensure she gets what she deserves.
