What is a prenuptial agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is a contract you make with your spouse regarding certain issues related to your marriage. It allows you more control and options in the event that your marriage should fail or break down. However, a prenuptial agreement can also lay out the responsibilities and obligations of each spouse. In many cases, prenuptial agreements foster clear communication between spouses. Additionally, prenups often contain provisions that cover how property division and alimony should be handled in the event of a divorce.
What is a postnuptial agreement?
Some couples get married and then decide to draft a postnuptial agreement. This contract allows you and your spouse to predetermine how your property and assets are to be divided if you divorce. Without a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, the division of your property and assets may be decided by the court.
Benefits of creating a pre- or postnuptial agreement

Many people erroneously think that a prenuptial agreement is automatically voided if one spouse commits adultery. In fact, a pre- or postnuptial agreement is affected by adultery only if it discusses adultery or specifies what should happen if adultery is committed.
