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!

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.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements,

Not Just For The Rich & Famous:

ABC NEWS

A recent article on the ABC News 22 site has recently informed people what we already knew:  Prenups aren’t just for rich people.  Prenups aren’t just for famous people either.  The article and news report/video suggests that anyone with real estate holdings or investments should consider a prenuptial agreement before getting married.  The article also cites one person who despite this advice, feels that prenuptial agreements are a bad idea based on the perceived lack of trust in the relationship that using one can provide for some.  

The truth is, making life decisions which can impact your future, your finances, and your lifestyle without a proper understanding of why you are making such decisions and the impact those decisions can have on your life is a huge mistake!
