The original poster (OP) and her sister are property investors. She really wants to protect their shared assets but her suggestion to get a prenuptial agreement has everybody in the family up in arms, including her sister.
They Own Several Properties
The sisters own six investment properties together. They started with one house to live in and then bought lots of cheap houses and flipped them for income. They are doing well financially with their rental properties.
Her Sister is Getting Married
Her sister is getting married and the wedding is later this year and she is helping her plan.
She Thought OP Was Joking
When they were going through a list of things they needed to do for the wedding, OP mentioned a prenup. Instead of taking it seriously, she started singing the lyrics “we want prenup” from the song “Gold Digger” by Kanye West.
OP Sent Her Sister a Message
OP followed up with her sister and sent her a text message telling her that she knows a good lawyer and if she want her number.
Her Sister Replied and Said No Way
Her sister replied that she thought OP was joking and that she wouldn’t be asking her fiancé to sign a prenup.
OP replied that she wasn’t joking and she insists that she get one signed before getting married.
Her Sister Felt Insulted
She says it’s not OP’s place to insist but OP says it is when their assets are tied together.
She Became Angry
OP’s sister asked if she’s trying to imply something about her future husband. She then started yelling and being rude, saying that OP was jinxing her marriage before it began.
OP Gave Her Options
OP told her sister either she gets a prenup or they transfer all property to her name and then she gets one herself if she ever gets married.
She Started Receiving Messages From Family
OP says she was bombarded by family saying her sister’s fiancé is a good guy and would “never do that” if they separated.
The Fiancé Messaged Her
Her sister’s fiancé sent OP an angry message admonishing her for hurting her sister and calling him a gold digger. He now takes it as her disliking him.
She’s Not Backing Down
OP refuses to change her mind on the prenuptial agreement. She wonders if she handled the situation appropriately or if she is wrong for putting her foot down.
The Readers Respond
Many readers commented that there is nothing wrong with OP wanting to protect her assets. It’s also naive to believe that someone won’t someday turn around and ask for money if the relationship fails.
“Their premise around “I would never do that” is ridiculous, they also can’t imagine getting a divorce currently- so obviously if this document is ever needed they can’t properly envision what they would do. I have seen people do things no one would expect – or they themselves would have expected over a little bit of money and some hard feelings.”
“You gotta look out for yourself here. Your sister isn’t, and is just bringing a third person into your joint venture. That ain’t cool. NTA based upon sister’s reaction and lack of consideration to you.”
She Should See a Lawyer
Many insisted that OP see a lawyer to draw up a formal business agreement between OP and her sister to protect her assets because its not just a prenup that is necessary.
“have you seen a lawyer about your options though? Surely there’s some agreement you and your sister could sign that would at least protect your half of things. You’re not the first person whose business partner has gotten married”
“Agree 100% need to form an LLC to protect not just the rental property from future BIL but also protect OP personally from any issues from the rentals.”
