Prenuptial agreements may strengthen couples' relationships

When couples in Maryland or elsewhere around the country plan to get married, many of their major decisions are centered on the wedding itself. For example, they must discuss the venue, what the wedding party will wear or even what food will be served. While introducing the topic of prenuptial agreements may not be the most likely subject while wedding planning, some experts contend that having a prenup may actually strengthen a couple's psychological bond.

Many couples may view discussing the terms of a prenup as the opposite of a romantic activity. However, counselors suggest that while plans are being made to spend a lifetime together, it is also a good time to talk about protecting one another should something happen in the future. Discussing each other's expectations and goals openly and honestly can build trust before a marriage. Ideally, this discussion could be broached before many plans for the wedding have begun, even soon after the engagement. In most cases, it would not be wise to suggest developing one close to the big day.

It is important to have appropriate professional guidance in developing a prenup. Both parties involved should have separate legal representation to write and review the documents. The process should go smoothly is the future spouses are open about what is meaningful to them in the relationship and the future.

Those needing assistance in developing prenuptial agreements should contact a Maryland divorce attorney. An experienced lawyer will help clients prepare these agreements before their weddings to help them feel more secure about their financial futures. If couples are already married, they may wish to consider a postnuptial agreement, which could provide the same type of peace and assurance.
