Same-sex marriage in Florida has been legal since January 2015, opening the door for a greater number of domestic partners to become married. Prenuptial agreements are quite common in heterosexual marriages, but they may also prove useful for married homosexual couples.

Prenuptial agreements are typically used to split assets should the marriage result in divorce. They may also assist with adding greater clarity to legal matters, such as power of attorney for instance. A well-developed prenuptial agreement provides a potentially vital tool in helping spouses express their marriage expectations.
In the past, prenuptial agreements have carried a certain stigma, but they have since increased in popularity, especially in millennial couples regardless of their gender. This may be due to reasons such as the couple sharing equal financial responsibility. Nowadays, a “prenup” is likely construed as a genuinely practical solution versus one based on emotions.
