Yes, I’m getting married. But I’m not rich so, no, I don’t need a prenup. This has long been the view of many a dreamy eyed newly engaged couple. The rich have always understood why they needed them. People who are marrying for the second or third time tend to get a prenup (if there are children from the first marriage, the children often insist on it). Those who are not rich and are marrying for the first time have historically not regarded prenups as a priority. But things are changing.
