The truth is, marriage is not only a romantic relationship but also a type of business relationship. This dual nature and purpose of marriage have led to the increased acknowledgment that a prenuptial agreement (also called a premarital agreement or prenup, for short) can be useful to protect each spouse’s financial interests. Many engaged couples think it will never be a necessity, the truth of the matter is many marriages fail.
Peace of Mind
With a prenuptial agreement you would have peace of mind that your assets, finances, real estate, and other issues of value which are protected. Prevention is the best defense against a devastating loss.
Gift of Love
Popular culture has us thinking that prenuptial agreements are simply about anticipating a divorce. That is far from the truth the agreements are generally recommended for everyone. They signify a strong way of signifying you care about your future spouse because you want to ensure things are taken care of as thoroughly as possible.
Especially Important to Consider
If a divorce ever becomes your reality, you will thank yourselves for having taken care of a majority of the financial aspect of our marriage ahead of time. Especially if your life includes…
- Children from a previous marriage
- If either of you has been married before
- Either of you has more wealth than the other
- Either of you is a business owner
- Custody of future children and pets
Hiring a prenup lawyer can make all the difference, not only in reaching an agreement but also in getting it memorialized in a document that will stand up in court. A good lawyer — well, two lawyers, actually — will ensure that a prenup fits everyone’s needs. The law considers marriage a contract between two people. So unless a married couple creates a legally binding agreement that states otherwise, the law in the state where they live will govern their property rights.
