While you are engaged, you are likely not considering divorce at all, as it is probably the furthest thing on your mind. No one goes into a marriage expecting to be divorced, which is why many couples forgo a prenuptial agreement. However, finances are one of the most crucial aspects of divorce, as most ex-spouses have a difficult time coming to a clear agreement regarding their assets. Prenuptial agreements are a practical way to prevent any conflict down the line, and they no longer hold the taboo they once did. Don’t let yourself be blinded by the joy you are feeling in the moment and fail to protect yourself in the future.
The following are factors which may be a cause for a prenuptial agreement:
- Second marriages
- Business ownership
- Disparate assets
- Disparate debts
- Children from a previous marriage
Prenuptial agreements not a one-way street, as they require negotiation, and this means both you and your partner can be happy with the agreed terms. They are a realistic choice, as these legal documents will protect both you and your partner, in addition to helping you save time and money in the long run in case the marriage does not last or one party passes away.
