How can I discuss prenuptial agreements with my future spouse?

Prenuptial agreements are often misunderstood. Some people see prenuptial agreements as an attack on trust. One spouse may believe that the other does not love him or her enough to share. Some argue that if the love is strong enough, it should not be an obstacle.

In fact, prenuptial agreements are about protection and planning, not lack of love. That is why they need to be separated from the emotional decisions surrounding a wedding. Beginning prenuptial discussions well in advance of the wedding date will allow both people to consider it without the added pressure of time constraints.

It may be helpful to consider that, in addition to serving an emotional and spiritual role in people's lives, marriages are also a communion of property.
