Mediating Your Prenuptial Agreement


When a couple is engaged and planning their wedding it is a happy time in each of their lives, perhaps the best of times. Consideration of a divorce is probably not an option at this point. However, with the national divorce rate being somewhere above 50%, it is something an engaged couple should consider and prepare for, in the event that the marriage does not last.

The best way to prepare for the divorce is to plan ahead. That is through a prenuptial agreement (also known as a premarital or antenuptial agreement). There is an overwhelming stigma surrounding prenuptial agreements. In fact, many people think of them as an immediate concession that divorce lingers somewhere in the future. However, prenuptial agreements, if gone about in a mutual, instead of adversarial way, can actually position your marriage to begin on the right foot with a comforting and understood future.
