Say we want pre-nup, we want pre-nup (Kanye West-Gold Digger)

"Gold Digger"
She take my money when I'm in need
Yeah she's a trifling friend indeed
Oh she's a gold digger way over town
That dig's on me....

Another celebrity couple bites the dust....Eva Longoria and Tony Parker is headed for divorce after only 3 years of marriage.  I really liked this couple together, I actually thought it would last...or was I kidding myself?  Eva Longoria is seeking spousal support (Why?) and they both signed a pre-nuptial agreement.  That to me mean you keep your own and I keep my own, but who knows what is actually written in the pre-nuptial agreement.

I understand we are in a new day and time where women are making more money than men in some cases, but with that being said, is a pre-nuptial agreement set in place to help protect what was worked hard for before a couple became one or is it a sign that you're going into the marriage knowing that its going to fail?

Now, I might get looked at funny or some will think I'm crazy for saying this, but I will not sign nor will I ask my future husband to sign a pre-nuptial agreement(maybe until I'm really rolling in the dough...j/k).  In my opinion, I think it shows that you do not trust the person you are marrying and trust should not be an issue if you are set to walk down the aisle.  I just feel like if he chose to be with me (while broke) and I chose him and then all of a sudden I'm rolling in dough, why take something that we would eventually share together?  Yes, I was the one who made the money but utimately it's ours because we are one.  I guess I'm still thinking traditionally when my parents were married.  My dad was the primary breadwinner in our household and he took care of his family and I doubt that he thought my mom would leave him and take half of his earnings. This was not a worry of my parents, so I don't want it to be a worry of mine and my future husband.

Are you willing to sign a pre-nuptial agreement? Will you ask your soon-to-be wife/husband to sign a pre-nuptial agreement?
