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.
