Will you need a prenup?

A couple got engaged over the holidays and the topic of a prenup came up recently. People seem to have varying opinions on what prenups “represent” and how it reflects on the relationship. I would not have problems signing one – after having a lawyer look it over, of course; and I don’t believe it means that you are expecting the marriage not to last.

A lot of single women are earning more money than the men they marry so I think prenups have become less taboo to women. If you have a problem bringing up the topic of prenups, you probably shouldn’t be getting married.

It’s probably not a romantic or “fairy tale” part of being engaged but at the very least, the question can be addressed to find out where your partner stands. How do you know if you need a prenup? Would you have a problem signing one? How do you broach the subject?

At what point do you talk about your income with someone you are dating? Or should you bring it up at all prior to getting engaged?

‘it wasn’t all that obvious…actually probably kinda wack. lol’

Dreams – well, that was sorta my first thought but since I hadn’t really been keeping up, I didn’t want to put my foot in my mouth. (it’s not time to bite my toenails just yet anyway) lol

I have it saved because blog family asks about it sometimes flour about a quarter cup, about a quarter tsp of salt, some fresh ground black pepper and some oregano, chicken breast boned and skinless..umm four table spoons olive oil, some Marsala wine..I am generous with it but no more than a glass,about two handfuls of mushrooms, a half cup of chicken stock and a half cup of sherry and a half of lemon. Mix together the flour, salt, oregano, and pepper. Beat the chicken breasts with the flat side of your meat mallet softly. Roll the chicken in your mixture. On medium-high, heat the olive oil and brown the chicken…both sides. Then put chicken onto a plate. Pour wine into the oil and warm. Mix in the mushrooms, chicken stock and juice of the lemon..flip chicken over to get it well coated with the sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes
