Pre-nuptial agreements are complicated, confusing, and confounding legal documents. There are plenty of arguments against drafting a pre-nup: they are unromantic, they are expensive, they are too complicated, "we are never going to get divorced." All of these arguments have some merit. However, that merit isn't worth a hill of beans if your marriage (like 50% of all of them) ends up in divorce. Pre-nups have come to be for very legitimate reasons.
At The Huffington Post Lee Block has written a great article that cuts through the complicated legal jargon surrounding pre-nups, and endeavors to bring a bit of commonsense to the reality of marriage. Please click here for her original article entitled Divorce And The Marriage Contract.
