This turned out to be very easy. You want to draft the prenuptial
agreement in North Carolina.
The Uniform Premarital Agreement Act
..."which has been adopted in 26 states (and introduced in the
legislatures of 2 more states as of 2005), allows the parties to
select which state's laws they desire to control their agreement. If
either of you lives in, or you plan to live in or shall be married in,
one of the below states which have adopted the Uniform Premarital
Agreement Act, it is suggested that you select that state..."
NORTH CAROLINA is on this list, Massachusetts and Michigan are not.
Both Massachusetts and Michigan have statutes or case law allowing for
prenuptial agreements in a form other than the [above mentioned]
uniform act: the statutes require prenuptial agreements to be signed
writing but statute is silent on all other issues.

Community Property States (not an issue, just information)
..."Community property states in the United States are Arizona,
California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington,
Wisconsin, and the territory of Puerto Rico. Their laws state that
property accumulated during a marriage would be divided equally in the
event of a divorce. Other states have a policy of dividing assets on
an equitable distribution basis..."
