Marital Agreements: Why They Are Helpful In Certain Circumstances
To many people, a prenuptial agreement is seen as a curse; a jinx to their marriage. By executing a prenuptial agreement, a couple is seemingly admitting that they don’t trust each other or that they expect to get divorced.
But looking past these taboos, prenuptial agreements, often called marital agreements, can truly serve an important purpose.
Two Common Instances When A Prenuptial Agreement Is Beneficial
1. Second Marriages
A prenup is always recommended if one or both parties have been married before with children from their prior marriages. A prenup can ensure that children from that prior marriage are not disinherited in the event of a death.
2. Collectables Or Family Heirlooms
Individuals who acquire unique and valuable collectibles, family heirlooms, or even land that has been passed down generation after generation can create a prenup to ensure they are not classified as marital property and thus subject to division or distribution in the event of divorce.
