The marriage of two individuals usually calls for a celebration. Amongst all the excitement and buzz, a couple is busy reserving locations, picking out color schemes and centerpieces and sending out invitations. One very important thing that people often neglect to discuss is what is going to happen should the marriage take a turn for the worst. It’s safe to say that the institution of marriage is in a state of instability, as empty marriages are all the rage in the celebrity arena. With this being the case, it’s time for those considering marriage to also consider entering into a prenuptial agreement.
It is estimated that 40 percent of marriage in the United States end in eventual divorce. These cases are incredibly complex and can include child care issues, housing costs, and of course, money. Typically, these issues are discussed at the conclusion of the marriage when often time’s accusations are already flying, and feelings are already hurt. A prenuptial is a contract entered into before the marriage is formally entered into. The agreement will deal with things such as division of property, spousal support, and guardianship. These tender issues should not be addressed with open wounds.
