If you recently accepted your partner's proposal for marriage, congratulations. As you start planning your wedding with close friends and loved ones in St. Louis and the Jefferson County areas, be sure to think ahead beyond the honeymoon. You may feel so in love with your partner that you cannot fathom the idea of separation or divorce. Though you have committed yourself to your soon-to-be spouse and are ready to spend the rest of your life with him or her, life happens. When you go through divorce or death, sometimes what appears to be the strongest of relationships comes to an end.
You should prepare for anything life throws your way, especially if it is a divorce. If you and your spouse have personal or business assets, it is a good idea for you to enter into a prenuptial agreement. It gives you and your partner the opportunity to preserve your wealth, protect your interests and eliminate surprises in divorce. Here are some things for you to consider about prenuptial agreements.
