“What was supposed to be the best day of our lives, getting married, turned into a total nightmare,” says Mel. “Five weeks before the wedding, my fiancé, Ian, said that he wanted a prenup signed or he wouldn’t marry me.”
Mel says she feels ‘betrayed’ by Ian, whom she has been dating for over six years and has a 5-year-old daughter. She says they were ‘100 percent’ ready to walk down the aisle, had sent out invitations, tuxes were rented, cake was ordered and everything was paid for when Ian surprised her with the demands of the prenup agreement.
“Ian wanted to make sure that I didn’t get his pension and no spousal support after five years,” she says of the terms of the proposed agreement. “Behind my back, Ian and his dad went to a financial planner to get some legal advice. Ian gave me an ultimatum to sign the prenup or we were not going to get married.”

Furious with the last-minute demand, Mel says she called off the wedding.
Ian says that after hearing rumors about Mel’s partying, drinking and possible cheating, his father suggested he get a prenup and he agreed.
