Change Your Thinking!

Most brides-to-be blanch at the words but it’s time to turn the tables and make premarital agreements (pre-nups) work to your advantage. Women must come to regard these agreements as positive instruments of change that will improve their status after divorce both emotionally and financially. So bride-to-be, change your thinking!

Today’s brides and grooms are marrying later in life than ever before. Many enter into marriage with sizable assets and may even buy property or a home together before the wedding. If your fall into this category, it might be wise to consider a premarital agreement.

Protect Yourself From Greedy Lawyers & Yourself From Financial Disaster...

Pre-nups keep the money in the divorcing couple’s pockets and out of their attorneys’ greedy hands. Lawyers are the ONLY ones who benefit from an ugly and prolonged divorce, while women suffer!

Here's some facts you need to be aware of:

1. The poverty rate for separated women is 27 percent, nearly triple the figure for separated men.*

2. Women who worked before, during, or after their marriages see a 20 percent decline in income when their marriages end.*

3. More and more attorneys are offering financing to women to pay for the high cost of attorneys fees in divorce.*

4.According to Divorce Magazine, the cost of divorce varies... from as little as $8,500 to well over $100,000... but estimates usually fall within the range of $15,000 to $30,000.*

Here's the situation: about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce.** With a statistic like this one, why would a bride-to-be ever into marriage without a pre-nup? Or ever let herself become a victim of divorce?

The Benefits of Premarital Agreements

Pre-nups are beneficial if you have children from a previous marriage (who need financial protection). Psychologically they’re beneficial because they dispel a child’s fears if they’re anxious that their parent’s new marriage may threaten their inheritance.

Premarital agreements protect one spouse from the other’s debts (incurred before marriage) and they’re essential for the woman who scraps her career to raise children, or gives up her career to put her husband through medical school, for example. Everyone knows a Dr. James who dumped his hard-working wife for Nancy Nurse.

Premarital agreements can minimize the misery of divorce and save months, even years of heartaches and headaches, not to mention the cost. A well-thought-out premarital agreement will protect a woman and her future children in the event of divorce. 

How To Get A Premarital Agreement

The bride- and groom-to-be must each find a lawyer who specializes in family law. This is essential to avoid a conflict of interest. If you don’t know one, call the local American Bar Association ( for a reference or call the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (

Do NOT attempt to draw up a premarital agreement on your own.
