According to family law attorneys’ prenuptial agreements are more common than they used to a few years ago.
However, some couples don’t feel it’s necessary to draft a prenuptial agreement when they get engaged. You don’t have to own a lot of money nor have a large estate to benefit from a prenup.
Some of the main benefits are knowing in advance what your financial obligations would be in case of a divorce, be on the same financial page about your future together, and it can be a communication exercise that brings the two of you closer. Learn more about prenuptial agreements here.
