Many people hold a negative concept of prenuptial agreements, thinking that they are a prediction that the marriage is doomed to failure. While it is true that the agreement will not come into action unless you divorce, having it in place may actually assist you in your marriage. Conflicts over money are among the leading causes of divorce, and taking the time at the beginning of the marriage to clearly define property rights and the terms of asset division can remove much of this tension.

Do I need a prenuptial agreement?

It is easy to overlook the fact that though marriage is based on a romantic relationship, it is also an economic partnership, and many rights and duties arise between the couple by operation of law. In the event that you and your spouse decide to end the relationship in the future, you will have to sort out matters such as alimony and division of property and debts. You may not be in a generous or cooperative frame of mind at that point. By taking the time now to settle those issues in advance, you can protect yourself against the possibility of a drawn out legal battle.
