Top reasons why a pre-nup is good for every couple
1. Pre-nups are practical
More than 50% of marriages end in divorce in the USA. No happily engaged couple wants to hear depressing statistics on divorce, but if you believe yourself to be at all practical, a pre-nup is a necessary part of entering into a marriage.
2. Pre-nups will save you money and time
In the unfortunate case that your marriage ends in divorce, having a pre-nup will save a tremendous amount of time and money spent on dividing up assets and negotiating things in court.
3. Pre-nups ensure each person is entering the marriage for the right reasons
If you are worried that your potential spouse will be put off by the idea of a pre-nup, recognize this as a red flag. Pre-nups are not malicious and do not signal any intention to divorce, they serve to protect the best interest of both parties. If negotiating a pre-nup during the time before your marriage causes ill will, imagine how hard it will be once you are married and the honeymoon phase is just a distant memory.
