The best tips for asking for a prenuptial agreement

As you think about your wedding day, you may come to the conclusion that you should create a prenuptial agreement. While this sounds good in your mind, there's something you need to know: Your soon to be spouse may not be as excited as you.

Of course, this shouldn't stop you from discussing the benefits of a prenuptial agreement. You still need to sit down with your partner, talk about your feelings and decide how to best move forward.

Here are several tips if the time comes to ask for a prenuptial agreement:

  • Give yourself enough time to work through all the details. You don't want to wait until the last minute to ask for a prenuptial agreement, as it could be too late at that point. Give yourself several months to work everything out.
  • Work together to create the prenuptial agreement. You don't want this to be a one way street. You need to discuss the finer details with your partner, making sure that the both of you are happy with the terms.
  • Be clear about what you want. You have a reason for wanting a prenuptial agreement. You need to be clear with your partner as to why you want to create this legal document. When you do this, he or she will hopefully feel just as comfortable discussing personal thoughts.
  • Take a step back. You don't want the creation of a prenuptial agreement to drive a stake between you and your partner. If things get heated, take a step back and wait for a few days before you revisit the topic. Once again, this is why you want to leave yourself plenty of time.

These are the types of tips you can follow if you want to ask for a prenuptial agreement.

As you learn more about the benefits and focus on the legal side of creating this document, everything will hopefully come together. Careful preparation and a strong understanding of the available options can be key parts in forming strong, well-tailored prenuptial agreements.
