Pre-nup, Post-nup

The fine print in the fairy tale.

You adored him. Now you can’t stand him.

You worshipped her. Now you curse her memory.

Most attorneys will agree that the best contracts include provisions that address what happens if one or all of the parties want to terminate the contract.  That way everyone knows up front what to expect if the unthinkable happens.  It may not be romantic, but the reality is that marriage is a contract that many people enter into on a daily basis.

It’s one thing to make a mistake. It’s another to enter into a contract without an exit strategy.

Because every love story — repeat, EVERY love story — has a second act, and your “happily ever after” might depend entirely on just what’s in your pre-nup.
