A closer look at the benefits of having a prenuptial agreement

For many Florida couples who are celebrating the excitement of their engagement and anticipating their upcoming wedding, the idea of drafting a prenuptial agreement is often uncomfortable. Often, discussions about this type of agreement are associated with contention and stress. However, if people understand the benefits of writing and implementing a prenup and are committed to going about it in a positive way, they can create an agreement that is designed to protect each other's future in a way that is civil and void of unnecessary drama.

While many couples may struggle to see the value of writing a prenuptial agreement, their decision to do so is important and could positively shape their entire relationship. According to U.S. News, some of the reasons why couples should get a prenup include the following:

  • Prenups keep things in perspective: For many couples, the process of sitting down and discussing their prenuptial agreement is an excellent way to talk about the "what-ifs" of their relationship in a controlled environment. This enables each person to get a glimpse into the other person's plans for the future and allows the couple to keep their relationship in perspective. 
  • Prenups can provide security: While no one likes to think about the possibility of getting a divorce, failure to secure a prenuptial agreement can cost couples their financial security in the future. A couple's decision to be proactive about discussing prenups, even if uncomfortable at times, is an excellent way to protect one's assets and financial future. 
  • Prenups are a valuable investment: Even though a prenuptial agreement may seem expensive for a newly engaged couple, the process of creating, implementing and finalizing a prenup is often less than the average cost of an engagement ring. This valuable investment will save considerably more financial stress in the future if a couple ends up getting divorced. 

The Huffington Post also suggests that couples use prenuptial discussions as an opportunity to talk about their finances.
