Most people either hear about prenuptial agreements from the celebrity gossip page or from the classic Seinfeld episode. On your first marriage, most people never think about getting this valuable protection. However, divorce is a great learning experience and you would be surprised how many people get a prenup for their second marriage.

Listen for his creative suggestion on to present a prenup to your fiance.
If you are coming into a marriage with inheritance, existing property, retirement, or children, a prenuptial agreement is something to think about.

Should you choose to go forward with a prenuptial agreement, it can be prepared rather quickly.
