Understand why prenups are so important for engaged couples

When your boyfriend or girlfriend proposes to you, the planning for your wedding begins. Don't focus so much on the process of getting ready for the wedding that you don't take the time to protect yourself.

Nobody wants to think that their marriage will end. This is especially true if the marriage hasn't even begun. It is still best to plan for the possibility just so that you have the peace of mind knowing that you are protected.

We know that you might not even know where to start when it comes to a prenuptial agreement. You have think about several points. We can help you work step-by-step through everything.

One thing that you have to think carefully about is that prenuptials can't overly favor either side. These agreements have to protect both sides, so your betrothed won't have to feel like you are the only one covered if you do bring up the possibility of a prenup.

Another thing that you have to think about is that your future spouse will need time to think about the premarital agreement. You can't bring it up just before the wedding and think that you have a solid prenuptial agreement.

When you do bring up the subject of a prenuptial agreement, take the time to make sure that you and your future spouse each have your own lawyer. You can't share a lawyer for this agreement. This is because each person has to ensure that the agreement they are signing is in their own best interests. Ultimately, you need to make sure that nothing that has to do with the prenup will invalidate it if the marriage ends.
