Prenuptial Agreements & What They Mean to YOU

Posted on: December 16th, 2013
A prenuptial agreement (also referred to as an antenuptial agreement or premarital agreement), is a contract between future spouses or partners outlining how matters will be handled when the relationship  ends in either death or divorce.  The agreement typically outlines how property will be divided, the amount of spousal support, and other monetary matters in the event of divorce.  There is often a provision for the forfeiture of assets if the divorce is caused by adultery.

Some people believe that it is a bad omen to sign a prenuptial agreement because it is a sign that one or both parties are already planning for the marriage to end.  However, executing a prenuptial agreement can be an effective means for resolving matters while both parties are happy and level-headed.  It can remove adding salt to the wound if the relationship ends.  It can also be beneficial if one or both of the spouses has children from a previous marriage.  Resolving conflicts before they occur can save heartache later.
