Life is often filled with unbelievable milestones. From having your first kiss to becoming a grandparent, people have the opportunity to experience monumental, joyous occasions.

For many people, getting married is one of these occasions. And although the union of marriage represents love and commitment, it is also a legal agreement to share your life and all of your assets with another person -- this inevitably brings money into the question.

The mixed messages can lead to a lot of confusion:

When it comes to money, the happy couple aren't necessarily the only people involved:
My future mother-in-law is pushing a prenup on me. She says she will cancel the wedding if I don

The reality of a prenup can often be different than how you might have theorized it:
My boyfriend wants me to sign a prenup before we get engaged. I had agreed before but now I just don

It could potentially represent the real reason you're getting married - love:
My bf asked me to marry him, he is extremely wealthy, I had my lawyer draw up a prenuptial agreement. I want him to know I
