In America, more than half of all marriages end in divorce. Some marriages end in very ugly and bitter divorces. Despite this well known fact, many couples refuse to “kill the romance” with the P word: Prenup. A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two people about to wed that spells out how assets will be distributed in the event of divorce or death. It is important that a couple thinks of it as a business arrangement or as an insurance policy to help remove some of the emotion that is naturally involved. Marriage is a financial union just as much as it is an emotional and physical union. Just as premarital counseling may ensure the well-being of a marriage, sitting down with your lawyer to discuss your options to protect your assets may ensure the financial well-being of the marriage. A prenuptial agreement will protect assets such as a home, real estate investments stock or retirement funds; business and professional practice; the value of academic or professional degree (some people who get a degree during marriage are forced to pay part of its value to the spouse during divorce); and any future increases in income.
