Why Some People Sign Prenups
MAKE DIVORCE EASIER IF IT DOES HAPPEN.
A prenup can have all assets, debts, and other factors split up before you even enter into marriage. This can help to fairly disperse all belongings and make the divorce process less stressful.
EASE YOUR CONCERNS WHEN ENTERING INTO A SECOND MARRIAGE.
Children, support obligations, and a home with a previous spouse can all affect your second marriage. It's important to protect your assets and help to make sure your financial burdens stay your own if your next marriage does not work out.
PROTECT YOURSELF IF YOU'RE MARRYING SOMEONE WITH A TON OF DEBT.
When you marry someone, you can be partially responsible for their financial debt. If your marriage ends, you may be stuck with part of this debt load, even if you did not help accrue it. A prenup can help to make sure you are not burdened with debt that is not yours.
PROTECT YOURSELF IN THE EVENT YOU DIVORCE WHILE YOU HAVE NO JOB BECAUSE YOU'RE TAKING CARE OF THE CHILDREN.
If you plan to quit your job to start raising children, it can impact your income in a major way. A prenup can help to ensure that the financial burden of raising the children is shared fairly by both partners.
MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT FINANCIALLY TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF.
If you or your partner has substantially more money than the other, a prenup can help to protect your assets. This can also help ensure that someone is not marrying you for your money, and for who you are. It's important to protect your assets when you enter into a marriage.
