Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Contrary to popular belief, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are not about dividing assets or planning for the worst. The real benefit to arranging one is to discuss and plan while you are still in love. It starts a path of upfront, honest communication between two people.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can address things like debt from college, credit cards or child support and whose income will be used to pay for it. They are also used for determining assets that will go to children from a previous marriage or how a joint business will be divided. A prenuptial agreement happens before the marriage. A postnuptial agreement happens after. Either way, you can save a lot of money in the long run if you end up separating.
Over the years, there has been a fair amount of negativity associated with prenuptial agreements. When family members learn that their loved one has been asked to sign an agreement before marriage, they often see that as red flag and quickly turn against the person requesting it…
