Prenups

Over the last few days I've been reading/skimming a book with the title of Prenups for Lovers: A Romantic Guide to Prenuptial Agreements by Arlene G. Dubin.

I don't know why I did so, but probably out of idle curiosity. It's likely also for that reason that I did a search on "prenup" in this forum, but no hits. Can that be right?

Also, it wasn't until just the other day that I knew I live a community property state, so I'll go read what Noah_Bodie has to say on the matter.

Re: Prenups

To me, they still have kind of an ick factor for first marriages, but for subsequent marriages, especially when there are children from previous marriages, they seem very wise.

 

When my former mother-in-law married for the third time at age 70-something (she was twice widowed, and he was a widower), they did a pre-nup. He died 10 years later after a long and difficult battle with Alzheimer's dementia, and the pre-nup was very helpful to her in untangling the estate, and it kept all the adult children from weirding out about who got what.

 

(She is done marrying, per her announcement.)

Prenups are a lot like divorce decrees in that they usually have no effect on rights of creditors.

Re: Prenups

I wouldn't get maried again without one. Just seems foolish.

 

Would have had one the first time if I knew how things were going to work out, LOL!
