More couples safeguard futures with prenuptial agreements


Many Americans, including Virginians, have mixed feelings about premarital legal agreements. Some consider legal arrangements before a wedding as unromantic and perhaps a signal that one's future spouse is not committed to the other. Some, however, understand that there are no guarantees that a marriage will last and that planning for the future is important even if it is not entirely predictable. For this reason, more and more couples are signing prenuptial agreements to deal with the serious issues that often come with the dissolution of a marriage.

According to reports from one tabloid source, television and movie star Ashton Kutcher, who divorced Demi Moore last year, wants girlfriend Mila Kunis to sign a $170 million prenuptial agreement before they marry.

The source reports that Kunis is reluctant to sign such an agreement and has no designs on Kutcher's wealth. For his part, Kutcher apparently does not want the same hassles with this marriage that he experienced in his first.

The couple recently became engaged after a high-profile romance.

Whether or not the Kutcher and Kunis reports are true - and other sources say they are not - prenuptial agreements offer many benefits and cover such issues as property division, spousal support, child custody and visitation rights and child support.

A prenuptial agreement before marriage helps to prevent disputes over property, assets, spousal support, child custody and child support. More important, a prenuptial agreement will help safeguard the interests of any children a couple has and resolve potential custody issues. As a result, a couple could end up battling less over financial issues.

Anyone considering a prenuptial agreement should consult with an attorney who specializes in family law. An experienced attorney can provide expert guidance on the pros and cons of a prenuptial agreement. With the help of the agreement, both intended spouses can protect their financial interests.
