Question: I should have gotten a prenup before I got married. Several of my friends got them are they are very lucky that they did. Now I'm in a very bad situation and I don't know what to do.
I married a lady I met online. She said she was a doctor and that she was a cheerleader for the University of Georgia. I believed her and we got married after dating for 2 months.
And things were very strange on our honeymoon. All she wanted to do was watch TV and surf the web. She barely looked at me. Most of the time we ate separate meals. She didn't want to spend any time with me. She met some people on the cruise and she hung out with them most of the time.
After the honeymoon she said she really wasn't a doctor but she someday wanted to be a chiropractor. She said she didn't really attend UGA but she liked watching them on TV with her alcoholic father. Now she wants to borrow money from me to go to school and to get UGA season tickets.
We moved into my house in Sandy Springs after the honeymoon. She barely talks to me and I think she's dating our gardener, Lars. Lars does seem like a nice guy and he does a great job on our lawn, but it's still wrong.
I should have gotten a prenuptial agreement but I thought we were really in love. Can I still get a prenup? I really think I need to get a divorce.
Answer: It sounds like you are going through a rather nightmarish scenario. A prenuptial agreement can only be signed before you get married. However, after you are married you can sign a postnuptial agreement, which is also referred to as an antenuptial agreement. A postnuptial agreement does many of the same things as a prenup. In fact, many couples sign postnuptial agreements.
In your situation it sounds as if an postnuptial agreement would not work. It sounds unlikely that your wife would sign such a document. Due to the apparently short duration of the marriage and all of the circumstances involved, instead of spending time and financial resources on a postnuptial, it might make more sense to seek a divorce.
