Getting married is an exciting time. When you are in love, it is hard to imagine that one day you might have a change of heart or that the worst can happen. However, it is important to protect your pre-marriage assets in case something does go awry in the future.
A prenuptial agreement, or prenup for short, is a legal agreement between a couple that is made before marriage to ensure that any assets acquired before, or sometimes during, the marriage are protected. It can also help you make important decisions regarding asset division, future alimony payments, and more.
We would all love marriages to last forever and oftentimes, they do. Prenuptial agreements are not a harbinger of future unhappiness. Rather they allow for peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are protected in case of a divorce, infidelity, or death. If you have a solid prenuptial agreement in place, this can allow you to enter your marriage with the confidence that your best interests are protected, and that you will not have to worry about these decisions if the worst should happen.
