@ PrensBana & jimf, I hear what you saying about a pre-nup shows the man not being 100% confident in the marriage/relationship, but don't you think pre-nups came into being because the divorce rate in the western world is @ 50%! It would be great if you found your one true love, and you and she were perfect for each other, and perfectly content with each other, for ever and ever. But the harsh realities of life are that at least as many marriages fail as succeed. Rushing in to a relationship or not rushing in; I know of rushed marriages that lasted, and also people who were together for years before tying the knot, and then months later divorced! I think IF pre-nups are/were legal in the Philippines, then the huge disparity in wealth between husband and spouse should be a massive factor in the decision making process. Finding a wife over the internet, who is much younger, and who wants to get married straight away, is a situation that definitely requires careful consideration regarding financial arrangements. Especially if a house is involved where the expat cannot own the land and many guys have the house in the wife's name. To all you guys who are living the dream with a devoted and loving wife, respect; but please don't say that a worldly wise man should have more respect for the marriage and shouldn't consider pre-nups. That is simply not realistic! IMHO.
