Is It A Necessity In Today World|
It may now be a good idea for coupleshttp://www.promressesau.com/blog/
t o make a prenuptial agreement before their wedding day, but will it
undercut the value of marriage? Prenups look set to become increasingly
used in the UK following the well publicised German heiress, Radmacher
case. She protected her vast fortune from her ex-husband using her
prenup. The case hung on am agreement made by the couple a decade
earlier. Even though such agreements are not legally binding in the UK,
the court took the agreed document into consideration, leaving the door
open for similar cases in future.
People are using a UK prenuptial agreement more than ever before.
However with divorce statistics on the rise many people wish to be
cautious at to protect their personal assets. The sanctity of marriage
is unfortunately something which has suffered in contemporary Britain.
Prenups are becoming more common as the figures show that 50% of
marriages will end in a divorce.
Although technically speaking a prenup does not legally exist in the UK
as a recognised contract, the court of appeal in the above case showed
that they are willing to recognise its existence. Whilst a lot of
couples to be - think that marriage should not be pre-decided using a
prenup agreement, many couples are thinking of the future and what
protection the agreement could offer.
A UK prenup is an arrangement that the parties entering into a marriage
keep their own personal assets in the event of a divorce. It also has
the facility to provide for the future, discussing assets that are
gained during the marriage. Interests of any children involved prior to
the marriage and those borne out of the marriage are always considered
Drawing up a prenup before a promressesau couple
are married enables each party to be in a safe financial place before
entering into the marriage. It helps prevent sham marriages for money or
"gold digging" as it is often known. The prenup should be created
mutually and entered into in the right frame of mind. Both person
signing should know its proper function.
People must appreciate that no-one en
ters into a marriage knowing what the future holds or
expecting that they will get a divorce. Unfortunately however, divorce
does happen and those opposing prenups of moral grounds should
appreciate this fact and take note of recent statistics. Rather than
undermining the sanctity of marriage, prenups are a tool to protect each
parties personal finances for the future and hopefully the agreement
will never even be referred to.
