Ms. Di, holy crap, I can't believe you were pregnant!! I was 8 days late after this happened, and I was freakin' out. What a mix of emotions you must have experienced. I'm relieved there was a very happy ending, though.....you give me hope!!
Dmitri Markine, thanks for your post. I actually make half as much as him, but own my property. I really don't like it when people say a prenup is about trust. It's about financial health, and the fact that the divorce rate is typically 50%. That means half of us who are so happy we are getting married may later on be getting divorced. Not exactly great things to think about when you're supposed to be excited for the wedding, but it is reality.
Just an update for anyone wondering....................
*Things are okay with us!!
*We're not engaged now, but I'm pretty sure he is working on it.
*We found a work-around with the downpayment issue that we're both happy with.
*He is such an ass and I can't imagine not having this goofy dork in my life.
*He is going to counselling. I'll go with him when he is ready. He says stupid stuff sometimes and needs to figure out how to not say stupid stuff.
*I'm happy with things, and everyday, am working on ensuring my life is secure, with or without a man. Can't say I don't enjoy having him in it, though.
<3 you guys for your posts and support. <3
