So it looks like a remarriage may be on the cards for me at some point in the next 2 or 3 years.
The woman in question has a successful business, a beach house etc. She wants a prenuptial agreement. That is music to my ears, because I want one as well. We are in a similar financial situation.
I have also suggested we see a financial planner so we can work out how we will handle finances going forward. She hasn't objected. One issue I used to have is I am used to paying for everything. I am trying to get out of it. She paid for dinner last time. Definitely progress.
Any further suggestions are appreciated to safeguard me and her- we each have 2 kids. Last time round I paid for everything and never spoke about money. It wasn't a good situation and I won't repeat it.
Congrats! I married again and I like it. Situation a lot like yours. We did a prenup because she wanted it. I make more but she invested far better so she has more. And since we both have grown kids, we want to make sure things are right when we kick off.
I'd take this issue off these boards though. You'll get a lot of "you're effin CRAZY" and quite frankly, it just doesnt belong here as a topic. There has to be number websites out there for this. Save yourself the barbs and find one of those
I don't make a ton of money but the way I was raised makes it very difficult for me to not expect to try to provide every tangible resource for the relationship. It sucks. But I also have made some progress in that area and when a girl offers to pay, I no longer object and insist my card is taken by the server
