A prenup is a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding contract created by two people before they marry. In the prenuptial agreement the couple addresses such issues as the property brought into the marriage by each person and any property acquired during the marriage and, what the property rights of each will be should they divorce.
In our society, it is considered to be rude to want to have a prenup before you are married. In actuality it is a smart decision that can save you from losses should anything should go wrong, ie marriage doesn’t work out or you were being used so the other person should get half of your assets. I didn’t understand why it was a bad thing because I always saw it as a way to protect yourself but articles ive read such as the Huffington post and others (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/henry-gornbein/prenuptial-agreements-the_b_1088748.html)
Say otherwise. In the articles, they talk about how these are just way one fiance takes advantage of the other. As i was researching this topic, I just became more and more confused as to whether it is a good thing that protects or a bad thing that harms.
