3 Reasons People On Instagram Need A Prenup!

 

1) INSTAGRAM PICTURES MIGHT BE FOREVER!

 

If you ever take a bad picture, it can end up on Instagram.  Changes are, throughout your relationship, you will take a bad picture or two.  Those pictures might end up on Instagram before or during your marriage.  Even worse, if you aren’t protected, they can end up on Instagram or some other social networking site after your marriage.  Parties with a Social Media Prenup can agree not to post certain types of pictures of each other.  They can also use such a prenup to make rules that the parties can agree to follow. 

 

2) INSTAGRAM LIKES AND POSTS CAN LEAD TO DIVORCE!

 

Instagram is full of temptation and people acting in ways that are unpredictable.  There are countless Instagram MEMEs making jokes about girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, and husbands, who are upset by the behavior of their partners on Instagram!  Rules regarding online activities in a prenuptial agreement can help to create a disincentive to acting a certain way online.  However, it can also ensure that you aren’t disparaged or defamed online.  You may even want to consider not adding your spouse as a friend so that your relationship is not affected by day to day silly online activity.  This also eliminates the temptation to spy on your spouse online.

 

3) YOUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT CAN BE CONSIDERED JOINT/MARITAL PROPERTY AND BE LOST IN A DIVORCE!

While the law says that anything acquired during a marriage may be marital property and have to be split in the event of a divorce, you can, with a prenuptial agreement, put clauses into effect which clearly state that both parties agree before the marriage that the Instagram Accounts of each party are to be separate property and are not intended to be commingled into the marriage.  Also, Instagram is about pictures.  Pictures are intellectual property.  If they were taken during the marriage, the pictures belong to the marriage and can be split in a divorce.  The accounts holding the pictures may also be split!  Years ago, prenuptial agreements might have been used more for money and assets, today’s changing environment has made getting a prenuptial agreement a good idea for anyone who is using the internet and social media sites!   If you think that the concept of your partner taking control or ownership of your Instagram account in a divorce is a crazy result that should never happen, you should probably consider getting a prenup, even a basic one, to make sure that such can never happen!  Don’t leave anything to chance!  If you have Instagram or Facebook, then you have something you may need a prenuptial agreement to protect.

3 Reasons People On Facebook Need A Prenup!

facebook friends

 

1) IF YOU GET MARRIED YOUR PARTNER CAN POST NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT YOU

 

Though many people think that normal people who are in love don’t need prenups, prenuptial agreements can cover a great deal of every day stuff.  A prenuptial agreement with social media clauses can help you prevent your partner from engaging in activities which may lead to fights and/or embarrassment.  You can have a prenuptial agreement which requires your partner to consult you before posting certain types of pictures.  You can have an agreement which forbids your partner from posting certain types of pictures of your children on public sites.  You can even add non disparagement clauses to ensure that your spouse does not post anything negative about you.  You can create penalties with your partner and put them into your prenuptial agreement.

 

2) IF YOU GET DIVORCED, YOU CAN LOSE YOUR ACCOUNT IN A DIVORCE!

 

People think about divorces and they think about children and about property.  No one says, hey…anything that your have in a marriage has to be split, and then thinks about their interests in online accounts like Facebook.  However, the truth is, when you go to get a divorce, your Facebook profile and account can very well be the biggest part of your divorce.  In fact, a recent study suggests that Facebook users are more likely to divorce!  While TIME MAGAZINE points out that researchers believe there is a connection between Facebook and Divorce, they point out no one knows the exact cause of that connection.  Either way, your Facebook account can be evidence in your divorce.  Even worse, while splitting your assets, your partner might state that the account has been commingled into the marriage or was started during the marriage and as a result, may be marital property.  He or she may even end up with the account.  A prenuptial agreement can state that the parties clearly don’t wish for such a result to happen.

 

3) A SOCIAL MEDIA PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT CAN LEAVE NO DOUBT THAT YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE/ACCOUNT PRIVATE!

While the law says that anything acquired during a marriage may be marital property and have to be split in the event of a divorce, you can, with a prenuptial agreement, put clauses into effect which clearly state that both parties agree before the marriage that the Facebook Accounts of each party are to be separate property and are not intended to be commingled into the marriage.  Which years ago, prenuptial agreements might have been used more for money and assets, today’s changing environment has made getting a prenuptial agreement a good idea for anyone who is using the internet and social media sites!

Also things created during a marriage can be joint/marital property.  This includes pictures taken during the marriage.  If you take pictures during your marriage, they are joint/marital property and if you get divorced, they can be a part of the the fight.  If you put those pictures on facebook, a court could rule that you commingled marital property into your seperate property and made it marital property.  This could mean your Facebook account and interest in the account could be considered marital/joint property and you could lose it in a divorce!  If you are horrified by that result, you should consider a prenuptial agreement and/or a prenuptial agreement with social media clauses!
