Florida has one of the highest divorce rates in a country where a large percentage of marriages fail. Even with all the unfortunate statistics out there, prenuptial agreements tend to have a negative connotation. Many view pre-nuptials as the first step for divorce because it takes into consideration an outcome that most people don’t want to think about. The truth is that in today’s advanced and complex society, a prenuptial agreement is a very smart decision that can make a bad situation much easier to deal with.
It’s Not All About The Money
A Business Insider article states that the true benefit of a prenup is that it fosters good communication and honesty before the marriage even takes place. Debt and child support are two things that many Americans have to deal with and establishing financial responsibility before marriage can prevent an argument, headache, and more paperwork in the future. The ability to make arrangements while there is still love and communication present can make the world of a difference if a divorce actually happens.
