What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract that is entered into prior to marriage. It outlines the wishes of each party with regard to financial matters in the event of divorce or dissolution of marriage.
While some people may view prenuptial agreements as pessimistic, they can actually be a positive tool for couples to consider. For instance, a prenuptial agreement can help a couple consider the financial impact of divorce before they tie the knot.
Furthermore, prenuptial agreements can help protect a person's assets in the event of divorce or death.
What Does a Prenuptial Agreement Include?
Prenuptial agreements can include various provisions. For instance, a prenuptial agreement can include the following:
- Provisions regarding property ownership and division
- Provisions regarding spousal support
- Provisions regarding the disposition of property and assets
- Provisions regarding the disposition of assets in the event of death
How Do Prenuptial Agreements Work?
In order for a prenuptial agreement to be valid, it must be in writing and must be signed by both parties. In order for a prenuptial agreement to be upheld in a divorce, it must meet certain requirements. These requirements include:
- The agreement must be in writing
- The parties must have had independent legal representation (meaning they were not represented by the same lawyer)
- The parties must have full knowledge of the agreement's terms
- The agreement must be fair and reasonable
- The agreement must be entered into voluntarily
What Are the Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement?
The main benefit of a prenuptial agreement is that it can help ensure that a person's assets are protected in the event of divorce or death.
Additionally, prenuptial agreements can help a couple plan for the future. For instance, a prenuptial agreement can help a couple consider the impact of divorce on the division of their assets and property. Additionally, a prenuptial agreement can help a couple plan for the future, such as when one spouse will support the other financially after the birth of a child or when one spouse will care for the other's parents.

The decision to enter into a prenuptial agreement is a personal one, and it will depend on your unique circumstances. If you are marrying someone with significant assets or a high net worth, you may want to consider a prenuptial agreement to protect your own assets.
