You've spent a good portion of your life working toward your career goals and have established a thriving business or found a position at a Fortune 500 company. You are proud of how far you have come and the assets you have accrued. To make things even better, you have found the love of your life. The two of you are engaged and making plans to get married.
This is a scenario that a lot of Florida residents eventually find themselves in. With love in the air, it can be very hard to think about putting together a prenuptial agreement. The two of you plan to spend the rest of your lives together. It seems impossible to think about writing that prenup when you are concentrating so hard on writing your vows. But the fact of the matter is that a prenuptial agreement is a vital tool that can even help strengthen your marriage.
How can a prenuptial agreement strengthen a marriage if you are already discussing divorce? Discussing the matters that relate to a prenup, such as property distribution, division of assets, alimony and finances, can help clear things up between the two future spouses. The discussion may certainly be difficult and could even lead to some arguments, but in the end it is important to know where each individual stands on these topics.
