The Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement

When entering into the married state, one hopes that it lasts forever. Sadly, that is not always the case. In the United States, there are two divorces every minute. Many couples decide to divorce for many reasons, such as infidelity or irreconcilable differences. Because the chances for a marriage ending in divorce are very high, many individuals choose to prepare a prenuptial agreement before marrying as a form of protection.

Preparing a prenuptial agreement can allow two parties to protect the assets that were obtained before marrying, or perhaps another significant asset such as an inheritance, in the event of a divorce. A prenuptial agreement can also be specific enough to protect the interests of children from another marriage, property division in the event of a divorce and the obligations and rights that are expected during marriage. Prenuptial agreements are often made by individuals who have had a messy divorce in the past or because of the insistence and pressure of family members. Regardless of the reasons, all individuals who choose to marry should stop to consider if they would benefit from creating a prenuptial agreement.
