Although it might not sound terribly romantic, creating a prenuptial agreement with your future spouse is one of the most responsible things you can do as a couple. The fact is that we never know what the future holds and having a safety net in place will ensure that, no matter what happens, your interests will be protected. That said, bringing up the topic of creating a prenuptial agreement with your fiancé may be difficult, so we compiled some tips to assist you.
How to Ask Your Fiancé About Creating a Prenuptial Agreement
When bringing up the topic of creating a prenuptial agreement with your fiancé, it is crucial that you do so as soon as possible. It is unfair to your fiancé to bring it up with little time to spare before the wedding. No one should feel pressured into entering this agreement, so be considerate of your fiancé’s needs and feelings by giving him or her plenty of time to think about it.
Moreover, understand that this will likely be a heavy conversation, so be understanding and willing to have an honest and open dialogue about it and why you believe it is the best decision.
You may wish to bring up some of the following points:
- Creating a prenuptial agreement can be a collaborative effort, so you can both include the things that matter to you.
- It does not mean you will eventually get divorced. However, if the worst-case scenario occurs and your marriage fails, a prenuptial agreement will save you a lot of time and heartache.
- If either you or your fiancé has complex assets or children from previous relationships, a prenuptial agreement can provide immense benefits for both parties.
No one wants to imagine their marriage ending before it even begins, but it is essential to be ready for anything. Additionally, creating a prenuptial agreement at a time when both of you have each other’s best interests at heart is better than fighting over property and assets when you are not on amicable terms.
