Do You Need A Millennial Prenup?

Posted by Erin Birt | Aug 14, 2018 | 0 Comments

Is a Prenuptial agreement setting up your marriage for failure? According to Bryan Meltz from the New York Times, it could make your marriage stronger financially.

Millennials are now tackling marriage agreements as a team rather than having one party feel forced into something they consider a “trust issue.”

Millennials realize that a prenuptial agreement is an understanding that divorce could happen to anyone. They are in tune with the concept that although couples enter into marriage thinking nothing could ever tear them apart, it could happen.

Prenups are vital if you or your partner own a business, have children from a previous relationship, or hold a significant amount of debt.

Prenuptial agreements should be discussed and agreed upon sooner rather than later, and it is essential that there are no hard feelings.

Marriage is a team effort, and the reality of marriage is that it can be successful if you plan ahead. Contact us today to start your successful marriage planning.
