Brooklyn’s Pre-Nuptial Specialists
It’s not news to anyone that marriage has changed over the years. Once upon a time, households tended to include a single “breadwinner,” and in the (then rare) case of divorce, the non-working spouse was usually awarded a generous settlement in light of the financial disparity between the two and the ongoing job of child rearing.
Today, more often than not, both spouses come into a marriage with significant earning power, if not significant personal assets. Couples are marrying later, prioritizing education and career, and while they take the vows and commitment of marriage as seriously as ever, couples of all ages also bring a much greater realism to marriage today.
Pre-Nuptial Agreements are one way that couples can honor their union by specifying their own autonomy, the value of their work and accomplishments, and the importance of what each brings to the marriage.
Yes, a pre-nup can clarify things in the event that the marriage fails and the couple decides to divorce, but the biggest advantage of a pre-nup in modern marriage is that it openly acknowledges that each spouse is complete, capable, and has unique (and protected) assets within the marriage whose security is not in doubt.
Pre-Nuptial Agreements are a great way for spouses to recognize each other as independent people, equally positioned within the relationship.
If you’re preparing to wed, it’s the perfect time for each of you to review your finances, clarify your short- and medium-term goals, and really take some time to think about the ways that joining your financial lives will impact both of you.
