When wealthy people marry, money tends to be the object of many issues. While the couple may not be worried about their finances in relation to affording certain purchases or paying the bills, it is likely a concern for the couple if they end up divorced. Protecting assets is a step many couples take, wealthy or not. A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is a device used to not only protect certain assets but also help with the divorce process.
Drafting a document that insinuates that the couple might divorce is difficult to do. No one wants to think about divorce before they are even married or after weeks, months or even years of a happy marriage. Nonetheless, these legal documents can often be the best decision a person can ever make because in the end, it is inevitable that a marriage will end. Whether it is through divorce or death, it is important to spell out what you want to happen with you assets when that time comes.
