Happy Valentine’s Day; say it with a Prenup!

Statistics show that Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days of the year for marriage proposals. However, for most newly engaged couples one of the least likely topics to discuss over Valentine’s candlelit dinner might be the prospect of entering into a prenuptial agreement.

Even considering such agreements can seem to many that ‘romance is dead’. However, for some people, prenuptial agreements can provide reassurance in the event that things can go wrong and might even persuade them to commit to a relationship where they might otherwise be uncertain.

This is especially true for those who have previously suffered a relationship breakdown, a prenup can offer peace of mind. Likewise, a widowed person with children may be concerned about the risks involved by entering a second marriage, a prenup can offer reassurance that assets will remain available to provide for children and grandchildren in the future. It can therefore sometimes help to think about a prenup as being like divorce insurance, that hopefully, you should never have to use.
