A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a post about marital contracts. More specifically, we talked about prenuptial agreements. Prenups are valuable contracts that can help many couples address some critical issues in marriage and divorce. Financial considerations can be made, as well as provisions that help protect your family business and your estate plan.
However, the prenuptial agreement has a couple of stigmas attached to it. First, many consider it to be an anti-love contract that is actually a predictor of divorce. This simply isn't true. Prenups are merely documents that plan for a divorce should one happen. Prenups don't predict divorce. Second, many think that a prenup, once signed, is legally impregnable and that there is no recourse for them if the prenup is unfair.
