Beware of prenups, but not because they are unromantic

Thompson, Sharon ORCID: 2015. Beware of prenups, but not because they are unromantic. The Conversation 2015 (Oct 30)

Imagine if the Beast had asked Beauty to sign a prenuptial agreement? It would certainly dilute the story’s romance if the Beast had said: “you can read the books in my library Belle, but you can’t marry me unless we contract that this is all mine if we get divorced.” Prenuptial agreements, or “prenups”, aren’t particularly romantic. But the issues with them are much more serious than the prospect of a fairy tale wedding being tainted by contractual negotiations. In many cases, agreements designed to protect the wealth of one spouse could leave the other in a vulnerable position in the event of divorce.
