Del Mar, CA – Although it may seem unromantic or awkward to discuss how assets would be divided if a couple were to get a divorce, it is becoming increasingly common and prudent for couples considering marriage to think about whether a prenuptial agreement is right for them. Studies show that many people are getting married later in life, and have accumulated separate assets of their own. Those separate property rights and interests should be discussed and protected in a prenuptial agreement accordingly, so that each spouse does not risk losing or dividing their separate property assets upon divorce. Another reason why a prenuptial agreement is beneficial for a couple getting married, is that it may be a subsequent second or third marriage for either individual. Likely, they want to avoid the stress and cost of a potential divorce or, as in many cases, there are preexisting child support issues or property rights that should be addressed in the prenuptial agreement.
