Re: Pre-nuptial protection
We're still very young in our marriage (and in general, lol). I was advised to get a pre-nup before I married to protect my assets. But I didn't have any assets to protect. We both came to the table with pretty much nothing materialistic to our names.
In my state, though, you keep anything you had before the marriage seperate. Whatever was accumulated during the marriage is split 50/50. I'm ok with that. Because if DH and I ever get a divorce (which I hope never happens), we each deserve our half of things. Because we both worked hard to make this life for ourselves.
I doubt either of us would ask for alimony. Child support, sure. But alimony leaves a bad taste in my mouth. My parents divorced after over 10 years together. My dad ended up paying alimony to her until the day he died, after over 20 years divorced. SMH. That is disgraceful, in my opinion.
