Many people think that getting a prenuptial agreement means that you think your marriage is doomed and will not stand the test of time. Nothing could be further from the truth. While it may be a bit difficult to bring up this subject when you are engaged, it is a positive action to take. What happens if you have children from a previous marriage who need protecting? A prenuptial agreement can address this issue and so much more.
A "prenup" is a contract that you and your soon-to-be spouse enter into to spell out exactly what will happen should the marriage come to an end. You and your attorney and your spouse and his or her attorney sit down and hammer out an agreement that protects both of you and possibly others. Your assets and property are listed and so are your partners so that all areas are covered.
