The mere word “prenup” strikes fear and anxiety into the hearts of most who hear it. When we realize we have to broach this topic, our thoughts immediately jump to the worst-case scenario - a broken engagement. Or we envision suffering through months of arguments and negotiations to please a family that doesn’t seem to trust our judgment or future spouse. However, Prenuptial Agreements get a bad rap since their real purpose is to avoid future disputes rather than to create present conflict. Even if the wealth levels coming into the marriage are disparate, these agreements can be welcomed as providing advantages and protection for both partners.
In this webinar, we explored:
- A thoughtful approach to raising this topic with your significant other
- What to do if raising the subject starts an ugly fight
- Ways in which Prenuptial Agreements can strengthen your relationship and provide positive benefits for both you and your fiancé
