Asking for a prenuptial agreement: Tips you can use

Once you and your partner decide to get married, you'll have a lot to think about. While planning your perfect wedding is a big deal, you should turn some of your attention to the future.

For example, discussing the pros and cons of a prenuptial agreement is never a bad idea. Even if you don't proceed with a prenup, talking about one gives you the opportunity to discuss some very important details about the future with your partner.

If you're ready to ask for a prenuptial agreement, here are some tips to follow:

  • Have an open conversation: Discussing a prenuptial agreement has the potential for disaster, as your partner may take things the wrong way. An open conversation helps protect against this, as both individuals are able to freely speak their mind.
  • Talk about your fears: Don't hide from your fears. Instead, discuss your reasons for wanting a prenuptial agreement, as well as the ways you feel it can strengthen your bond.
  • Ask and answer questions: Don't shy away from asking questions as you discuss the potential creation of a prenuptial agreement. Just the same, answer any questions your partner has for you.

If your conversation breaks down, step back for a few days (or weeks) so that both of you have time to calm down.

When you're ready again, sit down to revisit the possible creation of a prenuptial agreement. As you inch forward, you may come to find that both of you are on board with the idea. It's at that point that you can create an agreement that both of you are happy with.
