More women are seeking prenuptial agreements

Florida couples who are considering marriage may be interested to learn that more women than men are demanding prenuptial agreements before tying the knot, according to some legal observers. Traditionally, men have been more likely to ask for a prenuptial agreement in order to protect the property and finances that they had amassed prior to the marriage.

The trend has changed as more women are starting their own businesses and cultivating careers. More couples are becoming aware of prenuptial agreements and many choose to protect the property and financial assets that they have when they enter a marriage. Family law attorneys may be able to help couples considering marriage protect themselves in the future, especially if one person plans on becoming a stay-at-home parent. The prenups often cover alimony and property division.

Like marriages, prenuptial agreements are governed by specific laws. One important thing to keep in mind is that they are contracts, and as such, they must comply with those laws that govern all contracts. For example, a court can void a contract if it finds that one party was forced to enter into it under duress. This means that the prenuptial agreement should be negotiated and signed well in advance of the wedding date, for example.

Most couples do not enter a marriage with the expectation that they will get a divorce at some point in the future. However, because people are waiting longer before getting married, protecting the assets that they have accumulated prior to getting married is becoming more important. An attorney may help a client negotiate a prenuptial agreement that will help to protect the client's solely-owned property.
