Good morning. The prenup comes into effect upon divorce. If you never divorce, then there is no need for it since the purpose is to protect each spouse's financial interests. In this case, you would have grounds to contest it, based upon what you shared, if you were never given a chance to review it or retain counsel to look over it. Moreover, if he never disclosed this account, he would have done something which could trigger it being invalid, so it does appear you have defenses to raise and a basis to contest it. As far as doing it now without getting divorce, you can try but I am inclined to believe it would cause issues within the marriage. He could always agree to void it as well, if you confront him on this, without having to litigate it.
