Prenuptial agreements: a boon to many marriages, not a bane

If you’re a rising business entrepreneur or an already established business owner running a profitable enterprise who is soon to be heading down the aisle and entering a life of wedlock, you wouldn’t be adversely unusual thinking about a prenuptial agreement.

In fact, many family law experts and business advisers emphatically say that you would be remiss not thinking about one.

One commentator notes that, although raising the subject of a premarital contract with your intended “can really cast a shadow over the mood,” the topic should be broached by many couples and purposefully acted upon.

“Everyone who gets married enters into a contract,” she says. “A prenup enables you to write that contract.”

Even better, it enables a deeply experienced family law attorney with a proven resume demonstrating past work negotiating and drafting prenuptial agreements to work with you and get it done right.

If you’re afraid that bringing in a lawyer will dampen the mood, consider that many people find it advantageous and easy to work with an attorney who is also a professionally trained mediator.

The key to prenups, say the experts, is raising the idea of one early in a relationship and communicating candidly about its details and what is important to you. When done this way, it is much more easily seen as a useful planning tool that provides for the discussion and resolution of important marital points than it as cold water thrown on a fire.

And, really, that is truly what a dispassionate look reveals a prenup to be, namely, a contract that gets a couple talking about important things and then enables them to set them forth in writing in a manner that makes optimal sense and provides for maximum certainty and security.
