if I am getting married - do I need a prenup if the only thing I want to protect is previouslysaved money in IRA and 401K?
Thanks for using JA. I will do my best to answer your questions. DON’T FORGET, your deposit is not used to compensate me until you rate my service.

Money or earnings in a retirement fund prior to marriage remain your separate property and those funds are not subject to a division in the event of a divorce. Therefore the answer is no you do not if that is the only consideration.
