Should you and your partner sign a prenup?

Cupid’s Advice:

1. Bring it up: Broach the idea of a prenup gently because it’s a sensitive subject.  Stress that this would protect both of your finances, and ensure that what you build together is shared in case, God forbid, anything happens that could dissolve your marriage.

2. Ask and answer a lot of questions: This request can hurt the other party’s feelings, but it can protect both your assets, and prevent future complications should a divorce happen.

3. Get legal advice: Both parties should see their lawyers to learn more about how a prenup would benefit them.
