As you prepare for your wedding, thoughts about what you have left to do before the ceremony may come to mind.
One way to get ready that you may not have thought of before is to make a prenuptial agreement, which can help you feel less stressed and overwhelmed as you think about your assets and your future.
Collaborating with your spouse
According to Psychology Today, one way to prevent any arguments or suspicions is to craft this document while your spouse is present. Not only do the two of you get to contribute an equal amount to the finished agreement, but you are also sure that the final terms are fine for both of you.
Having a way to legally document who gets what assets in the event of a divorce is important. You may have family heirlooms or keepsakes that you treasure, and writing down what you want will make it permanent.
Discussing important topics
As you proceed through the creation of a prenuptial agreement, you and your spouse will have time to discuss what is most important to you both. If you share a business or have children from a previous marriage, these special circumstances may influence what you choose to do.
Having shared property or a lot of debt can change the way you write this document. Being open as you write this prenuptial will allow you to talk about finances and what you both need in an honest way. While some people may avoid making a prenuptial agreement out of fear of discussing tough subjects, crafting one can help you both feel secure about your future.
