You'd think that after a bad marriage like her first one, she would have developed some self-protective instincts. Maybe she is waiting for someone to shake her and yell "Wake up and smell the coffee!"

Unfortunately, it sounds like she is developing a pattern of choosing men who will victimize her.
This is why serious consideration of prenups must be made for second marriages and above!!!!

Do you or wife know any nice, stable single guys around her age. Some marriages are better ended early before they get too ugly.

Thank god for their pre-nup agreements!
I would let this marriage go.....their financial style is totally against each other. How the heck does he get so much business when his own affairs are in such a mess? I guess none of his clients have asked to see his assets!
I have learned to watch like a hawk as potential dates talk about money and how they treat their finances......a little attention can ward off a lot of problems later on.

It seems like a lot of us have dating standards similar to financial underwriting standards... or even better in light of what is happening now!

Because he should know all about financial security, it may be the case that he married her with ulterior motives. Perhaps he wants someone liquid enough to take care of him when he can no longer work, because obviously he has made some very poor financial decisions...

What does the pre-nup protect - other than her assets if they get divorced and her assets for her heirs if she dies first?

Does a pre-nup protect her from any debt that both their names are on should he die? Does a pre-nup protect her from the required "spend-down" prior to qualifying for Medicaid if he ends up in a nursing home? I don't think so, but maybe someone who knows can comment.
