How A Premarital Contract Can Actually Strengthen Trust

The Benefits Of Having One
Although prenups are frequently associated with wealth protection, this is only one aspect of what they can do.
Some of the other benefits of a prenuptial contract can include:
- Protecting you and your soon-to-be spouse from each other’s debts should the marriage end or either of you pass away
- Making it easier to pass on both your legacies or preserve the inheritance of children from a previous relationship
- Ensuring that a family business or one that a spouse founded prior to marriage is safe in the event of a dissolution
- Preventing a drawn-out battle over the division of your assets and properties should either of you seek out a divorce
- Setting clear expectations for both of you regarding your finances and responsibilities
Marriage is more than just the romance, it is about partnership. And at the end of the day, what you do now can impact this partnership for years to come. For this reason, before entering into your marriage, it is crucial that you and your spouse work together to build its foundation.
