I would NEVER get married without a prenup for exactly those kind of reasons. Once the relationship is over, I would refuse to support another adult who's perfectly capable of supporting themselves.

If some court told me I had to support an ex for the rest of their life, I'd liquidate every asset I had, go underground, and get a new identity (and no, I'm not joking).
