Asking for a prenuptial agreement may not be the most exciting thing you do in the time leading up to your wedding, but it could be the most important.
If this is something you want to discuss with your partner, it's best to bring it to light as soon as possible. This ensures that you have as much time as necessary to work through the details.
Here are some easy to follow tips to ease the stress that's often associated with asking for a prenuptial agreement:
- Have a positive conversation: Don't go into the conversation with the idea that you'll issue demands and quickly work through the process. Doing this will immediately put the other person off.
- Talk about your fears: Everyone has a reason for wanting to create a prenuptial agreement. Don't hide your fears. Don't hide from the reasons why you think this is a good decision.
- Stay calm: Your partner may become upset, but that doesn't mean you have to. You may become frustrated at your partner's inattention to what you consider something of importance. Even so, you need to stay calm at all times.
- Take your time: Don't try to cram everything into one conversation. If you don't work everything out during your first discussion, walk away and promise to revisit in the near future.
With the right approach, anyone can follow these tips when asking for a prenuptial agreement.
If you find yourself closing in the process, make note of what you want to accomplish and what you can do now to protect your legal rights in the event of a future divorce.
