Asking For A Prenup Without Getting Dumped!

The Business Insider website has a great article on how to ask for a prenup without causing a breakup.  As set forth many times in our blog, the article quotes Michele Lowrance, coauthor of “The New Love Deal: Everything You Must Know Before Marrying, Moving In, Or Moving On! as stating in sum and substance, that the discomfort surrounding discussing and entering into prenuptial agreements derives from “our cultural sensitivity around prenups has to do with a reluctance to face the idea of an unhappy ending.”  The gist of the article is that you should have relaxed conversation with the person you intend to marry, allowing plenty of time and room for several discussions.  Couples should always be aware that duress is something that should be avoided when signing a prenuptial agreement and both the behavior of the parties and the time given to review and sign a prenuptial agreement can be looked at by a divorce court to ensure that no party was under any pressure to sign.  Some people believe that asking for a prenuptial agreement evidences a lack of trust or a belief that the marriage will fail.  These beliefs can make getting a party to sign a prenuptial agreement difficult.  Third Parties can be helpful.  Lawyers and mediators often offer insight and advice which can be helpful in making decisions that can affect one’s finances and lifestyle down the road.

Some People Believe Asking For A Prenuptial Agreement Shows A Lack of Trust….

When discussing a prenuptial agreement, make sure to avoid pressure and duress, as such factors can lead to a court later voiding the premarital agreement.
