Do prenups indicate a lack of trust?

On Behalf of | Sep 2, 2017 | Prenuptial Agreements |

Couples may encounter many different stressors when it comes to marriage and divorce, from wedding planning to raising children. For some, prenuptial agreements raise a number of questions. Whether you are thinking about talking to your fiance about a prenuptial agreement, or your future marital partner has asked you to sign a prenup, you may be wondering whether or not this is the right path forward. At Fried & Fried, we know that some couples who are engaged in Florida worry that prenuptial agreements indicate there is a lack of trust in the relationship, while others may have additional concerns.

Sometimes, people view prenups as a sign that trust is lacking. However, when one person asks a prospective marital partner to sign this agreement, it does not necessarily reflect a lack of trust. Prenups can protect both parties and may also eliminate uncertainty. Moreover, prenups can be used to outline a couple’s financial path forward. Often, premarital agreements are seen as a contract that is only necessary for those who have a considerable amount of wealth. However, even those with a relatively modest financial background could benefit from a prenup.

When it comes to prenups, it is important for you to talk with your future spouse about the agreement and try to find answers to any questions either of you might have. If you navigate over to our prenuptial agreements section, you will be able to more information on the topic of signing a prenup or addressing an unfair premarital agreement.
