Most people planning to get married should have a prenuptial agreement. Happy couples might be reluctant to discuss the possibility of divorce, but there are ways to navigate a discussion about it. Timing is very important when it comes to talking about a prenup. You must plan out how you’ll present it, start the conversation early, and not bring it up when you and your partner are in a heated discussion.
“Remind your partner that all marriages end in either divorce or death. Even if you don’t want your spouse to predecease you, responsible couples have wills and estate plans. The reason for doing so is to prevent the state legislature from deciding what will happen to your property when you die,” says board certified marital and family law attorney, Charles D. Jamieson.
Don’t have a take it or leave it attitude, and manage your emotions when discussing a prenup. Listen to your partner’s concerns, be transparent about what you want, and be open to collaborating and compromising.
