Many couples in Florida approach their wedding day with a sense of anticipation and vigor. While the number of people marrying who have a prenuptial agreement in place is unknown, using one to delineate ordered expectations before, during and at the end of marriage is growing.
The reasons people favor prenuptial agreements vary but are often related to asset protection. Prenuptials may deal with what happens to homes owned separately before marriage and upgraded during marriage. Another area is inheritance. A spouse who expects to come into an inheritance may want to strategize about what will happen to it if the marriage fails.
