Setting up a premarital agreement is an easy way to protect your personal assets going into marriage. Usually, premarital agreements include a list of the property owned by each person entering into marriage; personal debts are often included as well. The terms of the agreement define what each person’s rights will be if the marriage ever comes to an end, as well as how income, expenses, and assets will be handled during the marriage.

Why Should I Get A Post Marital Agreement?
Many couples avoid setting up a post-marital agreement because they believe it starts a marriage with the mindset that it may fail. However, with more marriages than ever ending in divorce, this realistic approach to marriage can help avoid potential stress in the future. If the marriage does end in divorce, a post-marital agreement can allow both parties to go their separate ways and avoid lengthy and contested divorce disputes. It can also help both parties understand what their partner expects of them. This understanding can lay the groundwork for a phenomenal partnership. A marital agreement can help couples get comfortable with all kinds of issues that may create conflict down the road, including Income/expense sharing, assets, and debt.
