Start the Prenup Process, 

Even If You Decide

Not To Sign it!

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!

Prenups for Pets!

If you are engaged or thinking about getting married and you have a pet, you may want to get a prenuptial agreement with clauses to ensure what happens to your companion in the event of a divorce.  Prenuptial Agreements for pets are gaining popularity in recent years.  The internet is full of articles about disputes over dogs and cats who are like the children of people who have decided to get divorced.  Surprisingly, most people don’t know that anything acquired during a marriage may be considered to be marital property, including, pets!  If you acquired your pet before the marriage, that may not mean that you get the pet after a divorce.  Items commingled into a marriage become marital property in many states.  That can include pets that were acquired prior to a marriage but subsequently went to live with a married couple.

Prenuptial Agreements For Pets Are Gaining Popularity…

Even celebrities are finding out the hard way that custody of pets can be problematic during a divorce.  Yahoo News reports that Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas fought over the custody of their pets.  Griffith reportedly wanted their 3 dogs after their split.  A couple who thought they had no assets and would have an uneventful uncontested divorce spent weeks fighting over a dog said Jamel Oeser-Sweat, a New York attorney.  “One party could not have a dog in that parties building and was willing to move if necessary.”  Prenuptial Agreements with pet clauses in them could avoid those problems when they can be anticipated.
