Prenup Ripped Up &

Thrown Into Ocean On Honeymoon

Still In Effect: NY Judge

Ripped Up Prenup

 

Ezra Braha wanted to marry his fiancee Rina.  The Brooklyn business man needed her to sign a Prenuptial Agreement.  His father would kill him otherwise.  She says he let her know that and told her that he would rip it up after they were married.  He promised never to use it.  She got a lawyer and they both signed a Prenup.  They got married.  Then they went on their honeymoon and the couple tore up their Prenups and threw the pieces in the ocean.  Rina had peace of mind.  Ezra had pieces of a copy of the prenuptial agreement.  The real agreement would surface during a heated argument years later.

Even if you rip the prenuptial agreement

up on your honeymoon

and throw it in the ocean, it may still be valid…

While fighting, Ezra produced his Prenup!  He said that he tore up a copy. Rina’s Lawyer told the New York Post that Ezra stated in a deposition that it was never his intention to rip up the original because he could not betray his father. That was not all Rina discovered.  Turns out, Ezra had hidden the fact that he had a 25% stake in his parents’ multimillion dollar family business, which owned real estate, including hotels and malls!  A Brooklyn, NY Judge ruled that despite these facts, the Prenup was valid and could be enforced.  The Prenup specifically stated that no promises or covenants outside of the document should be taken into account.  Both parties were also represented by Lawyers.  “In this case, defendant fails to make a sufficient showing that would warrant setting the prenuptial agreement aside,” said the Judge in his decision.

Start the Prenup Process, 

Even If You Decide

Not To Sign it!

 20141022_223655_1

Couples often have serious discomfort discussing Prenuptial Agreements. Many factors cause that discomfort, from beliefs that Prenups signal a lack of trust, to the belief that prenups are for rich or famous people.  Emotions are probably the leading cause of the reluctance engaged people have about talking Prenups.  Molly McCluskey, in an article for DailyFinance.com, stresses what our site knows, to wit, that Prenuptial Agreements are important to the premarital discussions that every couple should have.  In her article she suggests that every couple considering marriage should start the Prenup Process, even if they don’t finish it.

Every Couple Should Discuss

Prenups Even If They Decide

Not To Sign One…

Despite the difficulty of the Prenup discussion every couple should discuss Prenups and the items that should go into them.  Prenuptial Agreements are an important tool for a couple.  Just because you don’t want to talk about the items that would be in a Prenuptial Agreement doesn’t mean they won’t later pop up and become marriage killing arguments.  Topics such as who owns what property, what behavior is acceptable online and on social networks, whether and degrees or licenses obtained during the marriage will be marital property, who may keep pets and other serious issues that would normally be resolved in a Prenuptial Agreement can be the basis for a war of the roses divorce.  There is no harm in spending a little extra time and money now to avoid huge cost and heartache later.  Having a game plan for marriage is what Prenuptial Agreements are really about.  Even if you decide you will never sign or use it, the conversation is still an important one to have!

Why Women Need Prenups & Postnups:

“The Real” Advice

Recently, the panelists of the daytime show “The Real” took the time to have a great discussion about not just celebrity divorce, but also prenuptial agreements and post nuptial agreements.  This panel discussion was a serious glimpse into conversations and thought patterns which take place for successful women in entertainment and beyond.  

“Prenups are good for regular people…”

One insight that was set forth was “break ups cause people to act crazy.”  “People become unrecognizable when you are going through a breakup.”  This is something that most people do not anticipate.  It can be very helpful to listen to the cast of “The Real” have their candid discussion about their own experiences with prenups and postnups.  Another serious insight was when one panelist states that when she got married, her husband asked for a prenup to solidify his position, but she didn’t have much.  She subsequently made money and the couple entered into a postnumptial agreement.  The take away is that prenups are for everyone, not just celebrities and rich people. Prenups are good for regular people too!  Some people think that prenups are unromantic.  Others beg to differ.
