Who uses prenuptial agreements?
In the past, prenuptial agreements were most common among people who were marrying for the second time. A prenuptial allows for the preservation of assets from a previous marriage for any children from that union. This is still a frequent reason for securing a prenuptial agreement.
Another reason for the increase in demand for prenuptial agreements is that many people are marrying later in life for the first time. This means both partners frequently have assets to protect that they do not want to lose in the event of a divorce.
