A prenuptial agreement may be right for you

You are eager to get married. You have a girlfriend that you've been with for years, and you're both at the stage where you're ready to move forward together.

You're confident that this will be a marriage that is built to last, but you should know that no one can really be sure. Since time can change what is now a good thing, you may want to look into setting up a prenuptial agreement before you get married.

Isn't it rude to bring up the idea of a prenuptial agreement to your potential spouse?

Not at all. A prenuptial agreement can benefit both of you. It helps protect you from unfair treatment in the case of a divorce and can define what happens if you do decide to divorce later in the future. A prenuptial agreement is a good idea if you have a significant difference in your assets or if you are both sharing ownership in a business.

There are many reasons to have a prenuptial agreement. You might think it's hard to bring up, but if you can, imagine having to go through a divorce without one. Depending on your circumstances, it could be a complex divorce. On top of that, you may both be in a place where you don't feel comfortable with each other. Setting up a prenuptial agreement now means that you'll both agree to an arrangement at a time where you want what is best for each other.
