Can a post-nuptial agreement be beneficial for a marriage?

Marriages are never easy. Through the years, all couples face challenges and go through rocky periods. However, divorce does not need to be the first option that you come to. There are ways to both protect yourself from the financial consequences of divorce, and in the process, you may be able to strengthen and save your marriage, too.

Psychologists reason that problematic marriages are often toxic because of too much interdependency. Healthy couples are able to function as independent, autonomous individuals, both emotionally and financially. Therefore, when a couple are having an argument about money, this argument often arises out of too much financial interdependency. Perhaps one spouse does not support the business decisions that the other spouse is making, and they worry that they both will fall into a great deal of debt.

How can post-nuptial agreements help with financial disputes in a marriage?

Post-nuptial agreements are not just about keeping wealth away from the other spouse in the event of a divorce. A post-nuptial agreement can serve as a way for a married couple to become independent from each other financially. This can help people resolve deeply rooted disputes that are present in their marriage.

Post-nuptial agreements can also be tailored to a couple's individual needs. Specific terms about finances within the marriage can be addressed, as well as what would happen in regard to the division of assets in the event of a divorce.

If you and your spouse have considered divorce but want to look into other options, it is a good idea to research the specifics of post-nuptial agreements.
