While everyone is entitled to a form of prenuptial agreement, not everyone
is happy with the possible outcomes of going through a lengthy divorce
process. A prenuptial agreement gives them more control over their finances
rather than allowing members of government to decide for them.
There are several cases in which a prenuptial agreement is highly recommended:
If you are substantially wealthier than your partner - you can try to avoid
partners marrying you for your money, rather than your person.
You are the primary breadwinner - many states limit the amount of money
that is payable during a divorce if a prenuptial agreement is used.
You are remarrying - you must take into considerations your financial obligations
from your first marriage, such as
alimony payments and
child support. If you should pass away then your first family will not be completely
passed over if a prenuptial agreement outlines exactly how they should
be taken care of.
