Perhaps this is something to think about post Valentine’s Day, if you happen to get engaged! And yes, we get it – a prenuptial agreement probably sounds like a pretty unromantic concept…
Despite the introduction of the no-fault divorce this year, pre-nuptial agreements are still a good idea. Ultimately, the no-fault divorce system is going to make things easier. The process is still the same but there is now a cooling off period which we did not have before, so it is likely to take longer than it did previously. The positive difference of course is that one party will not have to make allegations of the other at the start of the case.
Prenuptial agreements probably sound like the most unromantic concept imaginable to newly-engaged couples. It is considered some-what of a taboo topic but a ‘prenup’ is definitely something that should be discussed if you’re planning on getting married.
There are pros and cons to prenuptial agreements, most of which are personal reasons that should be discussed with your partner and an experienced family lawyer. Although it may feel some-what like you’re jinxing your marriage but taking precautionary measures to protect your assets is the logical thing to do.
