Smart couples have it.  Pre-nuptial agreements are designed to strengthen marriage and preserve relationships through open communication and expectation setting on vital marital issues. These are also designed to avoid disputes in case both parties do not wish to continue their marriage.

While many think that a pre-nuptial agreement is a romance killer, it is even more romantic to create your own rules in accordance with your individual needs and desires than to accept those that have been pre-set by the State. 

Contrary to popular belief, a pre-nuptial agreement may be entered into by couples of all financial means who wish to discuss in advance what is important to them. It’s not purely about money matters like spending, budgeting, allocation of earnings to household expenses, allowances, or even parlor money but it should cover other practical arrangements including work, the number of kids to have, distribution of household tasks, frequency of travel and vacation, time together and with relatives, business, property, inheritance, how to deal with in-laws and many more!

And if you are not ready to discuss any of these issues, you are probably not ready for marriage. In this one-day program, listen to and learn from the expert on how to craft a pre-nuptial agreement and how this can benefit you as a couple and your families’ altogether.
