No one wants to assume that something horrible will happen between you and your spouse. But, especially in something as important and potentially life-changing as a marriage, the phrase “better safe than sorry” rings true.
If you are the spouse who makes the majority of income and/or holds the majority of assets in your marriage, a prenup can ensure you are both protected from a worst-case scenario. For example, it can prevent your partner from leaving and staking claim to some portion of your life’s work.
Most importantly and most often, prenuptial agreements can help you protect your financial interests. In today’s world of side-hustles and complicated asset packages, a prenup can ensure that your financial status won’t be compromised in the event of a separation.
