Looking out for yourself isn't selfish - it's SMART!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to make sure that your property, finances, and investments are protected and remain yours legal in the event of a dissolution of the relationship or marriage. Pre-marital agreements aren't just applicable to finances and property, but the agreement is drawn up and signed by both parties prior to the marriage taking place. In order for your pre-marital agreement to be valid, it must be drafted and signed prior to marriage. There are also some elements of the contract that are required for it to be valid, and those are: The agreement cannot be unconscionable The agreement must be executed voluntarily There must be full and / or fair disclosure at the time of execution The agreement must be in writing. Oral pre-nups aren't enforceable The agreement must be executed by both parties and acknowledged before a notary public.
