Covid-19 may be one of the most unwanted wedding guests that you never want to see at your own wedding, which may be why you have already postponed your wedding. Many eager couples have had to delay their ceremony, and waiting for their special day does create a good opportunity for them. While you are waiting for your wedding, now may be the best time to develop a prenuptial wedding agreement.
Why anyone can benefit from a prenup
A prenuptial agreement is not just for ultra-wealthy couples to protect their assets before marriage. These agreements can help settle any kind of conflict before they arise in the unlikely event that the couple gets divorced later on. A few examples of these benefits include:
- Protecting ownership of both material and intellectual assets
- Guiding alimony/child support agreements
- Keep from gaining your spouse’s debt
- Confirming how the couple will divide shared assets
A prenup agreement can considerably reduce the time it takes to settle a divorce, which can save you money and energy in the process. Additionally, the cost of getting a prenup is far less than paying the full costs of a lengthy and drawn-out divorce.
