February is certainly the month of love! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you’ll see engagement after engagement pop up in your social media newsfeeds.
If you are one of those lucky soon-to-be newlyweds, you will have lots of planning to do! The list can seem endless, but one of your first priorities should be discussing a Pre-Nuptial Agreement.
This can be a very difficult subject to approach with your fiancé, because Pre-Nuptial Agreements are surrounded by the stigma that they automatically mean that you don’t love your partner, or that one of you is marrying for the other person’s money. This could not be further from the truth! Pre-Nups are becoming more common than ever, and many couples jointly decide to execute one.
A Pre-Nuptial Agreement is a huge gesture of love and selflessness. They aren’t one sided, they protect both spouses and their assets. If your fiancé brings up a Pre-Nuptial Agreement, try to look at it as their way of telling you they simply love you for who you are and not what you have.
It’s often thought that Pre-Nuptial Agreements are only for the rich and famous. However, what if you become rich and famous after you are already married? The owner of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, has found himself in quite the situation. He is the richest man in the world, and he has no Pre-Nuptial Agreement to protect him in his pending divorce.

Sometimes, it takes some serious thinking-through and Wolf & Shore Law Group understands that completely. That’s why we not only offer the service of drafting and reviewing Pre-Nuptial Agreements, but we also draft and review Post-Nuptial Agreements. These are agreements that will protect your assets just like a Pre-Nup, except you draft them after you have already been married.
Our office has drafted countless Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements, for clients just like you. Let us help you check one thing off of your wedding to-do list and contact us today for a confidential consultation!
