Discussing the need for a prenuptial agreement does not have to be awkward.
A sensible couple will discuss financial matters before marriage to avoid
any surprises that can lead to future issues or disagreements. Prenup
agreements are intended to protect both parties to the agreement.
In the past, the perception has been that these agreements were weighted
against the wife. This is not so today. The prenup can cover the assets
that both parties are bringing into the marriage as well debts. Professional
degrees are part of any prenuptial agreement and can be used to quantify
future support issues.
Prenuptial agreements also protect the inheritance rights of any children.
It is very common to have children from former marriages become part of
the new family unit. One partner may be expecting a large inheritance
that is not part of the joint assets of the marriage. Business ventures
may need to be isolated from the joint assets. Once these issues are committed
to an agreed prenuptial agreement, the marriage can continue without contentions
issues clouding the communication between partners.
