One woman is questioning whether standing up for herself was the wrong thing to do because her fiance ended up feeling hurt and "emasculated." The 32-year-old was accused of being a gold digger by her future mom-in-law, who kept pressuring her to get a prenup. The written contract is signed by a couple that’s engaged and determines their rights over assets, properties and debts if the marriage is dissolved. In this case, the woman had clearly mentioned that she never wanted a prenup but her MIL kept insisting, and that's when things blew up.

Reddit user AITAemasculatormaybe shared her story on the AITA section, explainingMy fiance and I have been together for about 6 years, engaged for 2. After we got engaged, we sat down and had the "deal breakers" talk. Basically things in our lives, our futures, hypothetical situations that leave little room for compromise (ie adopting children, finances, family boundaries, religion etc).One of the things on my list was no pre-nup. I'm not here to debate with anyone about their use, I just think that if you're preparing for divorce before even getting married, it's a sign that you're probably marrying the wrong person. He agreed and everything was fine. Lately his family (particularly his mother) keeps on bringing up signing a pre-nup. I've told her no many times, said this is an issue between us and we will discuss it privately and make our own decisions as a couple. He also tells her no, although more weakly.
