Reviewing the pros and cons of a prenup

On Behalf of | May 13, 2017 | Prenuptial Agreements |

When it comes to marriage, there are a number of individual considerations that are unique to a couple. For example, some couples tie the knot with a relatively modest income, while others get married with significant assets. In Lee County, Florida, and across the U.S., it is important for couples to carefully review their situation and figure out what is best for them. At Fried and Fried, we know how difficult it can be for those who are engaged to deal with prenuptial agreements. As a result, taking a look at the benefits and potential drawbacks of a premarital agreement may be helpful.

With a prenup, you may be able to protect your property, which could be especially important if you have a high net worth or considerable assets. By knowing that your property is protected, you may have more confidence and trust when it comes to your marriage, as well as mental freedom. Moreover, your partner may also find satisfaction with the sense of trust and security that premarital agreements can provide.

On the other hand, signing a prenup is not always easy. Sometimes, a partner may feel that being asked to sign a prenup represents a form of distrust. In other cases, people may feel like they are being pushed into signing a prenup against their will, which can render the agreement invalid.

Regardless of the questions and concerns you have about prenups, it is essential to closely analyze what these agreements involve. On our prenuptial agreements page, you can read more about signing a prenup.
