My husband's parents (more his father) wanted us to have a prenup. He didn't have any money, but we had just bought a house. As I was just finishing college, I had no credit, so the house was originally in his name. His father though I would leave him and "take your house." It took me quite a while to convince him that I wasn't after his house. I just wanted him.
I also made it clear I wouldn't marry him if he insisted on a pre-nup. So, we don't have one. (He has more debts than assets anyway.
He was raised to be suspicious of people, and with the false idea that everybody is after your money all the time. We were together for years, had bought a house, were engaged and were planning a wedding when I found out I was pregnant. His parents actually accused me of doing it to "Trap him." WTF? He tried to make them understand that he was there when the baby was conceived
and it was as much his responsibility as mine.
They were just really suspicious people. As it is one of his cousins is the co-executor on his mother's will.... not me.... a cousin who she never sees. I don't understand people who are so tightfisted as his parents.
