An engagement is an exciting time for couples, regardless of whether it is a first marriage or simply a fresh start. However, there are some practical matters which need to be attended to. Creating a prenuptial agreement with the help of our Chicago family law attorneys should be at the top of your list. While often mischaracterized as unromantic, the fact is this document can actually help improve the quality of your marriage.
There are many misperceptions when it comes to prenuptial agreements and engaged couples. According to The Spruce, these include myths that creating one indicates a lack of trust or commitment between the spouses, or somehow ‘curses’ the marriage by bringing up the idea that the couple could eventually divorce.
Unfortunately, the sad fact is that not all marriages work out and some do end in divorce court. While a prenuptial agreement can protect you in this situation, it can also help to avoid issues that may create problems over the course of your life together:
