Love is in the air when a couple enters into a marital contract, however, a few years into it anyone will tell you it becomes a business. There are obligations that extend beyond your wedding vows and some that are shared more than others.
A prenuptial agreement can help you with the business end of a marriage if you own property, have children from a previous marriage or you are expecting an inheritance of some sort.
The reasoning behind a prenuptial agreement is to determine how assets and other financial obligations will be resolved in the event of a divorce. Prenuptial agreements are not intended to mean you intend to file for divorce or that you do not trust your spouse. They are meant to allow both spouses to come to an agreement on how the marriage will look from a financial perspective and in some ways can help protect a marriage by eliminating the worries of finances. In addition, when adult children are involved in a marriage prenuptial agreement it can help alleviate a lot of stress and fear over the fate of an inheritance.
Certainty is one of the most important aspects of marriage but unfortunately, with about fifty-percent (50%) of marriages ending in divorce, entering into a premarital or prenuptial agreement is the only way for a Texas couple to address and provide for legal and financial certainty in the event of the unfortunate.
