I guess I'm from the old school where I feel trust and love are the minimal prerequisites to start a marriage.

No trust=Not a good marriage

You are already having doubts. Stay single until you are ready to share your whole life with someone.

My dad handled all the finances when my mom died she had no clue how much money they had, how to pay bills. I would never let that happen to me.

I'm reminded of the person who asked the forum if it would be OK to have kids so they would be cared for in their old age. I don't think they've been back. They were almost as unpopular as the person who told a mean joke about a dog!

He is better off renting by the hour if he is that worried about disclosing his massive wealth.

massive? maybe 25k... a lot for him.

If I were to loose my wife of (almost) 32 years... would I do a prenup or hide the assets?... well not hide. right now half may be protected by trusts so they end up with the present kids... hiding it really makes little sense as it can be found for divorce... it is always best to be open with what you have... and where you'd like things to go. I would not like to marry anyone who would not respect my wishes .... or I her's.

we should let the troll be.

That was my initial thought. But I wasn't going to spoil the fun. I was waiting for a veteran curmudgeon such as a REWahoo to ruin the party.

I read somewhere "if it flys, floats or [mod edit]s rent it". Sounds like good advice for him.

That said, I'd advise the GF to RUN, REALLY, REALLY FAST.

If you like to keep the financial matters to yourself, then YOU ARE NOT READY TO MARRY. It's simple as that. The day you feel good to talk financial matters to her, you are ready.

If that lady is educated and financially in good shape, your "Hiding Wealth from Your Wife" idea would not work. SHE WILL LEAVE YOU before you ask her.

I'm a big fan of hiding money, drugs, and my lucrative career as a [redacted] from my wife. Oh wait. I don't have a wife. Do have this lady that has shared my life and finances for something like 37 years. Everything is owned jointly, which has worked out well. I do wish I'd stop waking up with her kneeling above me holding a pillow...

Edit: I am advised that my joke might be misinterpreted. I disagree, but also live here, so in the interest of harmony..

I had to get to your post (#41) to confirm my own suspicions.

I felt I'd be uncharitable to questioning the seriousness/validity of this poor dope.

I seriously hope that this IS a put-on. If it isn't.......(can't even begin to go there)

If the OP was trolling he sure got us to bite, if not, we probably scared him off anyway.

Hasn't logged on since his one post. You be the judge.

Not me. DW was so poor I bought her several outfits the year before we were married so she would have nice clothes to wear. We spent my stash (5k) on our wedding and honeymoon. When we got back, I spent our last $100 on my beautiful bride for a pair of tiny diamond earrings. BTW, she treasured those earrings for the rest of her life.

My DW, doesn't care about "the number". I've tried to share a time or two and her response is "can we afford whatever?". Well, the honest answer is yes, whatever whatever is, so that's my response. I sure hope the kids are up to the task if I croak first. DW might try IG (Canada's Ameriprise).

I think the OP was about not telling a prospective wife... so to hide the $. My DW only cared that we had enough to RE (if we were going to bail on work)... and not on an expensive life style. The number is not what really matters for our needs.
