Often when people are contemplating marriage, they become concerned about the property that the owned or the debts the other established prior to the marriage. “How do I protect what’s mine?” “How do I prevent having to pay for my future spouse’s debts?”
Still other parties realize the unfortunate circumstance that many couples end up divorcing, and choose to set forth their respective rights and obligations up front. While they are contemplating or on the event of their marriage, they feel that they are best able to get along and discuss sensitive subjects, without the added stress, discord and inability to agree caused when couples are headed to divorce.
A topic that some find difficult to discuss, prenuptial or premarital agreements are an invaluable way of actually relieving stress associated with these topics and allowing the parties to go forward without worry.
