When a defensive alliance expires with another empire, I typically have the option on my next turn to re-create the alliance with that empire for a lot of money. If I don't try to re-create on my turn, then on their next turn that empire will sometimes offer me a defensive alliance with the gift of lots of money. So its much better finacially if they make the proposal, not me. However sometimes that empire will declare war on me the next turn.

Is this the experience of most players? Is it generally considered worth the money loss to re-new the alliance yourself, in order to prevent the possiblity of war and/or a hostile coalition? Thanks in advance
