I am preparing to get married and one of the questions that comes up is whether I should get a prenup or not. While my girlfriend and I both make decent money, I do earn substantially more than her and also have substantially more wealth than her; a situation that will "intensify" in the future.
If we were to not sign a prenup, what is the default solution in case of a divorce? Would we have to split everything 50/50, also the assets I accumulated before the marriage? Or would there be other options?
We currently have a joint bank account we use for relationship-related expenses; if we were to keep that system of asset separation except for the joint account, would the situation in case of a divorce change?
Many thanks for your help in advance.
