In most instances when couples decide to divorce, the settlement process can be overrun by emotion leaving most people finding it difficult to resolve the most basic of issues and, thus, unable to reach an agreement of any kind. Struggles with communication and compromise are commonplace in divorce proceedings and are likely contributors to the end of the marriage in the first place. As such, given the many trying issues experienced during a divorce, i.e. child custody, spousal support, property division -more people should consider entering into prenuptial agreement before they marry.
While prenuptial agreements can be very useful tools, most people never even consider them as the topic is viewed as taboo. Of course no one enters into marriage believing that the union will end in divorce, but, increasingly, they often do. In the event a marriage does end, prenuptial agreements can save couples a significant amount of time, stress, and money as the terms of the agreement are negotiated while the parties still recognize their love and affection for one another.
However, not all aspects of a divorce can be addressed through a prenuptial agreement and each state has different rules in interpreting and applying the terms of a prenuptial agreement. Despite same, there are some general guidelines that apply to almost all prenuptial agreements.

Again, while prenuptial agreements do not apply to every issue encountered during a divorce they can simplify and expedite the process. No one wants their divorce to be unnecessarily prolonged and, likewise, no one wants to expend more money than they have to. For those two reasons alone, all marrying couples should consider a prenuptial agreement.
