Getting married is an exciting event and marks a milestone in a person's life. Those in Florida who are planning to get married are no doubt hoping the union will last a lifetime. However, the unfortunate reality is that not all marriages last, and some estimates place the rate of divorce around 50 percent. In light of this, some say that prenuptial agreements can help couples avoid contention in the future by protecting each party's assets and defining each individual's rights and responsibilities. On the other hand, others claim that using a prenuptial agreement shows a lack of trust and creates a sense of foreboding that the marriage will fail.
Regardless of one's thoughts on the matter, the truth is that dividing assets ahead of time and protecting the legal interests of each party helps alleviate potential future stress and allows couples to focus more on the joy of the upcoming wedding day.
