    If both of you have tons of assets going in, then a pre-nup is a smart BUSINESS decision.  If not, then one should reevaluate the idea of what marriage is.  Don't marry if you don't have all of those internal/spiritual components in check.  Marriage (and children) has become such a hobby these days.

      Stay single & become a recluse was my vote.

      If I needed company I could afford to hire an escort.

          Self respect, integrity and other such qualities don't matter to people who sponge off others.

          Very good point

          I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

          The odds are about the same.

                Just like you can't control someone falling in love with you, you can't control them falling out of love with you. So yes, there would be a prenup.

                  I wouldn't even get married. In fact, getting a vasectomy is one of the first things I'd do after hitting it big.

                    In Texas, any property owned prior to marriage would remain the owner's property in case of divorce, however I believe liquid assets are a different matter and would be split 50-50 (since Texas is a community property state)  I voted "staying single" but yes, IF I got married, a pre-nup would be mandatory, particularly involving that much cash.
                    ---------

                    Did a little more reading and zipped back in here just in time to edit the post.  The liquid assets are a little more complicated.  I found nothing specific to the lottery, but if it would be considered along the lines of a gift or inheritance, then it would remain the property of the spouse UNLESS the money was used to purchase real property or deposited into a joint acct.  I'd definitely consult a lawyer before I got married.

                      Why a vasectomy after you win?  Does that mean your going without now?Big Grin
