The New York Times just wrote an editorial citing a study that was recently released that shows that couples who live together before getting married are more likely to get divorce. Your chances improve if you’re engaged before moving in together.
That being said, many couples today live together before getting engaged or married.
If you are going to get married and are worried about protecting your assets in the case of a divorce, a New York pre-nuptial agreement (prenup) is an excellent was to safeguard against what seems like the ever-increasing rate of divorce.
People seem to have different reactions to the concept of a prenuptial agreement. You may want to protect yourself from the harsh New York divorce laws but are worried that your fiance would be insulted by the idea of a prenuptial agreement. I’ve heard people call prenups “romance killers.”
Although they may take some negotiation, a well drafted prenuptial agreement is the only way to protect your assets in the case of divorce.
