A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding document that couples draft and sign before they wed. By contrast, a postnuptial agreement is a legally binding document that couples draft and sign after they are already legally married. Both of these documents accomplish the exact same aims – their essential distinction is the “when” of their execution, not the “what” or “how” of it. Therefore, you and your romantic partner can embrace the benefits of this process regardless of whether you’re engaged to be married or you have already wed. Our firm’s Tampa, FL family attorneys have extensive experience assisting couples with both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Why Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements Are Now So Popular
In the not-so-distant past, there was a stigma attached to these agreements. Essentially, popular culture held that only those couples anticipating an eventual divorce would enter into these agreements. In recent decades, that stigma has been all but obliterated. Nowadays, couples understand that in order to have a healthy marriage, to reduce the likelihood that certain issues will inspire tension within their relationship, and to protect their own interests (as a couple and as individuals), expectations must be clearly communicated and healthy boundaries set. Drafting prenuptial and postnuptial agreements allows couples to engage in this kind of proactive expectations setting and boundary exploration in a legally enforceable way.
This approach to laying a strong foundation for one’s marriage has become especially popular with younger couples. Instead of feeling that such an agreement would “jinx” their marriage, these couples view the drafting process as an opportunity to make decisions now that will save them from contentious battles with each other later.
