A marital agreement (often called a prenup or postnup) is simply a contract between two people who are married or about to be. It addresses upfront property and financial issues that may arise upon the dissolution of the marriage.
Although given a bad rap and seen as something only for the wealthy, marital agreements can be a useful tool for any engaged couple wanting to agree beforehand how certain property or money will be distributed should the marriage dissolve. Although not always easy to discuss, talking about these issues before solemnizing the marriage may save a lot of headache down the road.
