Does anyone have a pre-nup

But hubby never asked me to sign anything but I some times think his dad is a bit worried about their hard earned money going to me incase we divorce.

When i met h2b he was being screwed over by his previous girlfriend and was lucky to get out of it with his house.
When we bought our house i had nothing to contribute no deposit,savings or anything it was purely his money that we bought the house with as he sold his first house so we could buy together.
As i had nothing to contribute we had a seperate legal agreement with our solicitor that if we broke up he would get his deposit back plus a greater share of the property than me. If that makes sense. It was something like 60/40. I suggested this and he agreed. His family were grateful as well after watching what he had been through before.
However the agreement was to lapse if we ever bought another house. Which we have done now already so it means nothing.
I suggested this as i didnt think it was fair that he saved so hard through his years at uni to own his own home then to have me or any other girl come and take away something that i had not contributed to.
That is just my opinon. Also i knew i would spend my life with him so it didnt bother me as breaking up would not be an option anyway!!

I don't generally agree with the concept of pre-nups. I do make exceptions for certain circumstances though!

No, everything we have, we share, when we moved in together we bought everything from scratch.
I didnt marry into an overly wealthy family and neither did he, so its not something we EVER thought about. I always thought it was something the celebrities did LOL

We are by no means wealthy but both of us came from families that are assest rich. My parents have always invested in Real Estate and Cam's parents own a large cattle property that will one day be his.
Withour boring you with the details , casue it is quite lenghty , The house we live in and the property we have bought our ours to be halved, and anything else we buy HOWEVER anything that we inherit as such or are given is individual owned .
We love each other more than life itself ! but it was important to us that we kept our parents hard work separate !

Now I know every case is different but I saw the heartache he went through to now have to restart his life again at the age of 43.. He spoke to the whole family to get a pre nup as such to protect their business. It didn't start off with the relationship side of things. But we did want to take it further because my other half had alot more going into our relationship at the age of 19 than I. He had two investment properties and a beautiful car at 21.!! I think you think clearly when you are in love so its the perfect timing to do it. Rob insisted that we both sought legal advice because he wanted me protected too so I felt good about the fact that they had chosen to be adult about the whole thing.
At the end of the day, but my fiance's pre nup and will have me being looked after very nicely so why would I not go into this open mindedly..?
I suppose I want to put one thing forward to a few sceptics here.. If you were the one with all the assets and money going into a relationship, would you not think of protecting that if something goes sour.? When you know how hard it is to work for it.? I dont mean in any ways to be nasty by this question, just realistic..
To me its the same as relationship councilling with the church that everyone has to do. You don't want to be told how to run a successful relationship but you gotta do it.!! In this situation, this could also put doubt in your mind as to why it needs to be done when you are both so in love at the time.!! Its just realistic..
sorry.. my two bobs worth..

Our house is currently in my name only, and I have shares as well - he has nothing in his name (except for some of the bills! ). BUT - he earns more than I do so he did put in most of the money for our furniture and house renovations. Even though the house is in my name we've contributed equally to it and it would be fair to split everything equally if things were to ever go bad between us - so no pre-nup required (or wanted).
