Getting Married? Give Each Other A Gift To Keep Your Marriage Strong
A Premarital Agreement can be a very loving thing to do. Don’t fall for the myth that it’s “not romantic” or means “we’re going to divorce.” Any marriage can benefit from a Premarital Agreement. However, a “prenup” should be considered mandatory if:
- There is a business or particular other assets
- There is a debt or tax problem
- Yours is a late-in-life remarriage, especially with children from prior marriage
- The marriage is between people of significantly different ages, backgrounds or assets
Different expectations, undisclosed (or un-discussed) problems, and the needs of existing children can be some of the most difficult things to deal with in marriage. You can reduce the possibility that these will derail your dreams by addressing them now, and reaching a written agreement.
Many marriages do live up to the “death do us part” promise. But that means, of course, that one spouse has died, and the surviving spouse may have to deal with other family members, business partners, etc. Planning in advance makes sense.
