How can I suggest a prenuptial agreement?

On Behalf of | Jun 1, 2018 | Prenuptial Agreements |

If you are getting married in Florida, there are probably a lot of things you have to handle. From venues to food, weddings take a lot of planning. However, there is something else you should consider before tying the knot. That is drawing up a prenuptial agreement. This is especially important if you have a lot of assets, own a business or have children from another relationship. The only issue is that asking for a prenup can often cause waves in a relationship.

According to Entrepreneur, prenuptial agreements have a negative connotation even though they are a smart financial move for both parties. This means you should carefully approach asking your significant other to sign one. The best thing you can do is work with your partner to design the document and implement it. It becomes less imposing if you both are involved in its creation, which can make the whole process smoother.

You should listen to anything your partner is concerned with, but also stick up for your own interests. It helps if you can explain exactly what you want and why you want it to be like that. Provide information and help your soon-to-be spouse see how the agreement protects both of you.

Also, make sure that you let him or her know that things can be changed down the road as your marriage matures or when you have children. Make the process as easy on your partner as possible to avoid the common upset that can occur when proposing a prenup. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
