Although a pre-nuptial agreement (or pre-nup for short) may not seem to be the most romantic gesture, they can certainly be very useful to protect each spouse’s financial interests should an event such as divorce later occur. Many celebrities are reported to signed a pre-nup such as: Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, and Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, to name but a few. Whilst pre-nups are not binding on the English court, they are a factor which can be taken into account by the court on a subsequent divorce.
However glamorous pre-nups may appear, in the “honeymoon” stage of the relationship something that may seem like an inconsequential request in a pre-nup, could later be detrimental to a spouse if they should later divorce. So pre-nups are not always right for everybody.
But should you consider getting a pre-nup?
