Whilst no one wants to think about the end of their relationship, the reality is that sometimes marriages do break down, leaving both of you feeling unsure and uncertain of where you stand and your entitlements.
Although a court does not necessarily have to follow an agreement made before a marriage, it provides a really useful starting point and, when drafted properly, should prevent a lot of uncertainty if the worst should happen.
Although not right for everyone, pre nuptial agreements are worth considering for a number of reasons, for instance if you are getting married for the second time, or if one of you has an inheritance or business you wish to protect. Whilst it’s romantic to think that you’ll never need to use such an agreement, the reality is that, if the relationship does come to an end, prenuptial agreements can prevent a great deal of stress, disagreement and financial vulnerability, and it’s worth finding out sooner rather than later if you may benefit from such an agreement.
