Prenuptial Agreements Part 2: Bulletproofing Your Prenup – Avoid Common Pitfalls
In my last article, I listed several reasons newlywed couples may enter into a prenuptial agreement. We ended that article asking, “So what should you do to “bulletproof” your prenup?”
Some may find their betrothed may not view the idea of a prenuptial agreement in such a favorable light. So, for starters, when broaching the issue, remember that a little finesse goes a long way. Of course, be honest with your partner about the reasons for seeking such an agreement, but avoid presenting it in a manner that leaves them with the impression that you are planning an exit strategy before the vows are even exchanged. Indeed, there have been times where a poorly-planned or ill-proposed prenuptial agreement derailed the wedding entirely.
