What are some common mistakes with prenuptial agreements?

| Dec 31, 2020 | Divorce & Legal Separation |

Prenuptial agreements can be an awkward issue to deal with. You may be hesitant to even bring it up with your fiancé. However, this is a big mistake. 

In fact, The Knot explains there are a few common mistakes people make when it comes to prenuptial agreements. These mistakes can impact your relationship and make the process of creating this agreement more awkward than it needs to be. 

Rushing through

Since it is uncomfortable to discuss the end of your marriage before your marriage has even begun, you may just want to rush through the process of creating a prenuptial agreement. This is a mistake because it does not allow you to have important discussions. It also opens the door for issues with the document, such as forgetting to include assets. 

Taking it personally

Some people will dwell on the agreement even after signing it. It is something they never seem to let go of and harbor a grudge over. This is not a good way to begin a marriage. It will likely impact your relationship moving forward. If you have issues with it, then you need to discuss it with your partner so that you can move on and forget about it. 

Being emotional

Along the same lines as taking it personal is being too emotional when creating the agreement. This should not be something that you see as a personal attack. It is a business deal. If you can approach it in as a business matter instead of a personal matter, you will find it is much easier to handle.
