A prenuptial agreement can be a sensitive topic as it forces couples to raise the possible issue of divorce. Unfortunately, many couples do end up divorcing yet being prepared may help with strengthening the relationship.

A prenuptial agreement will provide a detailed outline regarding the couple’s finances should a divorce happen. The agreement will include the proper division of assets, which person is responsible for a certain debt, who will keep a piece property, trust creation for estate planning, and any other pertinent issues regarding finances that may develop. A prenup can also dictate spousal support terms after the marriage is dissolved.

It’s important to know that a prenup will not affect child custody terms, which is an entirely separate matter decided by the court with the interests of the child in mind. Clauses regarding housework, sexual relations, or the soon to be former spouse’s physical appearance are not legally enforceable.
