Prenups are pretty common because they help a person protect their wealth after marriage. That’s why several couples are signing it. Typically, it lists all of the property each person owns (as well as debts) and specifies what each person’s property rights will be after the marriage.

But the husband of the author of this post was not happy with the prenup that they have signed six years ago. Reason? Well, now the author earns around 3x more.

“Before we got married he had me sign a prenup stating that our financials would always be separate,” the author explained in a post on r/AITA and added that “the reason for this was because he was making pretty good money and I was in graduate school so my financial situation was pretty bad but I signed nonetheless.”




But fast forward to today, the author has been out of school for 4 years and makes more than 3 times as much as her husband, she argues. This didn’t go unnoticed when the husband saw her new big purchase, wondering where she got all that money from.

Read on to see how this family drama evolved and let me spoil it for you, someone (and that’s not the so-called head of the family) is having a sweet laugh at the end of it.

A woman has recently shared how her husband who made her sign a prenup before marriage changed his mind all of a sudden after realizing she earns much more

Later, the author added a couple of edits to clear things up

According to NOLO, an online resource that makes the law accessible to everyone by offering an extensive library of free, legal articles and a catalog of DIY products and legal services, “a marrying couple with children from prior marriages may use a prenup to spell out what will happen to their property when they die so that they can pass on separate property to their children and still provide for each other, if necessary. Without a prenup, a surviving spouse might have the right to claim a large portion of the other spouse’s property, leaving much less for the kids.”

“Or they may want to avoid potential arguments if they ever divorce, by specifying in advance how their property will be divided, and whether or not either spouse will receive alimony. A few states won’t allow a spouse to give up the right to alimony, however, and, in most others, a waiver of alimony will be scrutinized heavily and won’t be enforced if the spouse who is giving up alimony didn’t have a lawyer,” NOLO explains.

When properly drafted, the prenup contract can identify each spouse’s separate property and confirm how it will be treated upon divorce. According to NOLO, you can also decide how you’ll split your marital estate in advance. For example, if you want each spouse to receive 50% of the marital assets, you can put that agreement in writing, rather than leave it to a judge in the event you divorce.

And this is what people had to comment about this whole situation

But this was not the end: the situation in the family evolved pretty fast and ended in an unexpected way
