Ask the Expert: Should You Say “I do” to a Prenup?
Prenuptial agreements are interesting things.
For some, prenuptial agreements – or prenups – can be scary. From the legal perspective, they are designed to protect the separate money and assets of each party, acquired before the union. If properly drafted, they do just that. Still, many worry that asking for a prenup or agreeing to one can demonstrate mistrust in a relationship and start a marriage off on the wrong foot–expecting it to fail.
The reality is that over 80 percent of couples continue to pass on prenups. But, why? With more than half of all marriages ending in divorce, are we being falsely optimistic about the success of our marriages? What if a prenup could help to define what’s expected in the event of death or divorce and avoid a potential bloodbath?
Here, Steven Titus & Associates, P.C. Family Law Attorney Danece Day talks about the common misconceptions which surround prenups, why you may want to consider one, and what you can and should expect from your partner (and a good lawyer) before walking down the aisle.
