Do Something Right, Before It Goes Wrong – Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

When you purchase a home, you take out an insurance policy. The policy is in place in case something goes wrong. No one wants to think of their new home is damaged, but we don’t question the fact that insurance is needed to protect this valuable asset.

Why don’t we think of marriage the same way?

Entering into a marriage with the knowledge of all the possible outcomes is important. When you have an understanding of the law, you can begin to think about how you may want to insure yourself in case things go wrong.

Financial issues are one of the most often cited reasons couples get divorced. Money is a sticking point that creates adversity within a relationship. What if you could avoid this issue ahead of time? Wouldn’t you want to?

If your home was damaged in a hurricane, you’d know you have insurance to help you repair the damage. If you get into a disagreement about finances with your spouse, you know you have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that helps bring you peace of mind.

Again, no one wants to think of a worst-case scenario. But, just like insurance, you need to:

Do something right, before it goes wrong.

Prenuptial agreements are a way to protect yourself. Unfortunately, they carry a stigma. Couples in love often shy away from talking about it. They worry the discussion will create uncomfortable feelings.


Over the years, I’ve wondered a few times if some of my clients that were getting a divorce could have avoided it if a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement was in place. A handful of those uncomfortable conversations may have saved their relationship. If you could avoid issues in the future by having a discussion now, wouldn’t you want to?

Before you’re married or after you’re married, talk to an attorney and see what your options are. Schedule a free consultation with a member of our team and take out that insurance on your relationship. Schedule a complimentary consultation now.

Stay healthy in mind and body
