Happy Couple

If you are preparing for marriage, you may want to consider a prenuptial agreement (prenup). A prenuptial agreement is an agreement made by a couple before marriage. The prenup is concerned with the ownership of your respective assets, should the marriage fail.

If you can answer "yes" to one or more of the following questions, then you should consider a prenuptial agreement.
