I don't object to the idea. I strongly object to the timing (can't a pre-nup be declared invalid anyway if either party--in this case me--feels rushed or forced?), the money and the time involved (now he says we should each consult lawyers, knowing full well I don't have money for a lawyer and it's difficult enough for me to take off work to get the marriage license and other stuff we need to do). I already told him the ONE thing I want out of the pre-nup. I keep asking him why he's insisting on this at the last minute and he hasn't given me a good answer. He claimed at one pount that it was to protect some assets from his ex-wife but how could that be when they've been divorced for years and there's nothing in his will for her? Is he stupid or am I? Maybe he's just being clueless and inconsiderate but I am getting really ticked off and a little suspicious. Neither one of us has many assets or money, although he owns his house free and clear (thanks to his parents selling him their house for a lump sum when he was young, he has NO CLUE what I go through or most people go through with a down payment + 15-30 years of mortgage payments). By the way he wants the first appointment with the lawyer to be just over one week before our wedding.
