Understanding the difference between prenups and postnups

Asking your future spouse to sign a prenuptial agreement right before you're set to walk down the aisle can cause conflict at what's supposed to be an optimistic time. While the thought of asking your significant other to sign either a prenup or postnup might make you cringe, if it has to be done, there are pros and cons to pursuing both.

Describing and Quantifying Intellectual Assets In Prenups

A recently published report shows that more and more millennials are asking their significant others to sign prenuptial agreements to protect their intellectual assets before they walk down the aisle. If we think of a marriage as some type of contract in itself, this growing trend shouldn't come as a shock to most.

Engaged? Why You May Want A Prenup.

In 1960, the average age at which U.S. men and women married was 22 and 20 repsectively. Today, many people are delaying or foregoing marriage altogether. This seems to be especially true in New York City where first-time city dwellers are among the oldest in the country with the majority of them tying the knot between age 30 and 34.

How do you discuss a prenup with your soon-to-be spouse?

When two people are planning to get married, the last thing they probably want to think about is divorce. However, ignoring the possibility of divorce can be a costly mistake if you or your partner is bringing significant assets into a marriage.
