Is talking about a pre-nuptial agreement a bad thing?

On Behalf of | Oct 27, 2018 | Prenuptial Agreements |

You and your fiance are preparing to get married in Florida and the rollercoaster of emotions leading up to your big day is both exciting and exhausting. Recently, you have been interested in discussing a prenuptial agreement with your fiance to secure the best interests of both of you should the relationship end sometime in the future. While your intentions are good, bringing this topic up can be difficult and daunting. 

To begin, make sure that you wait for an appropriate time to discuss a prenuptial and not a time when tensions are already running high. Additionally, do not wait until it is too close to your wedding and the stress of last-minute details is already affecting both of you. According to Business Insider, if your significant other responds with a bit of dissatisfaction, keep yourself from becoming defensive and overly emotional. Instead, listen to his or her opinion and try to be clear that you want to protect both of your future. Approach your concerns in a conversational manner instead of demanding that your fiance takes immediate action. 

Make sure that you begin the conversation with enough time that you can revisit the topic at a later point if your fiance needs some time to consider his or her decision. Additionally, allow him or her to ask questions and do your best to listen intently. Be empathetic about his or her concerns and address them respectfully.
