Today, many will decide to pop the question. I wish you all the best. The only thing I would like to add is that you include in your wedding plans the idea of a prenuptial agreement. If over 50% of all marriages will end in divorce, why wouldn’t you take the time to try and minimize the damage in the event that things don’t work out?
A prenuptial agreement is like a seat belt– you certainly don’t get into a car thinking it will crash, but knowing that it is possible, you put the seat belt on to reduce the chances of severe injuries.
Outlining in a simple agreement what you want to define as marital versus non-marital, and what you will do with respect to alimony, does not take too much time for a lawyer to draft, so the legal fees should not be significant. Meanwhile, the peace of mind is priceless.
