Why Do Some Couples Enter Into a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract entered into by a couple before marriage. It outlines the financial arrangements and responsibilities of each spouse in the event of a divorce or the death of one spouse.

Entering into a prenuptial agreement offers numerous benefits for both parties.  Some key advantages of having a prenuptial agreement include:

  • Providing certainty: Clearly outlining financial arrangements and understandings between you and your fiancé can prevent uncertainty in the event of a marriage breakdown.
  • Protecting premarital assets: A prenuptial agreement allows you to safeguard assets that you owned before the marriage.
  • Shielding from debts: It can protect your spouse’s assets from being used to satisfy personal or business debts incurred outside the marriage.
  • Protecting family inheritance:  A prenuptial agreement can ensure that family inheritance remains outside the marital estate.
  • Securing a Family Business: Maintaining control of a family business is another important reason why some people want to have a prenuptial agreement. If you have a significant family business, it is prudent to consider having a prenuptial agreement to avoid complications should the marriage end.

 

Common Terms in a Prenuptial Agreement

Commonly addressed matters in a prenuptial agreement include:

  • Division of Property: How the couple’s property will be divided in the event of a divorce.
  • Maintenance Payments: The maintenance to be paid for the wife and children in the event of a divorce.
  • Debt Responsibilities: How the couple’s debts will be paid.
  • Child Arrangements: Custody and care arrangements for the couple’s children.
  • Distribution of Assets: How a spouse’s own property and assets will be distributed if that spouse dies during the marriage.
  • Inheritances and Gifts: Handling of inheritances or gifts, whether received or anticipated.

 

Is a Prenuptial Agreement Binding?

The court is obliged to examine the prenuptial agreement to ensure that it does not infringe on the provisions of the Women’s Charter.  When deciding on a divorce settlement or arrangement, the Court will evaluate the prenuptial agreement to determine the weight it should carry in reaching a just and equitable decision.  So while a prenuptial agreement can be highly persuasive, it is not automatically binding.  Nevertheless, it is still better to have a prenuptial agreement than not to have one. 

Prenuptial agreements can be set aside under certain conditions, such as:

  • Failure to disclose all assets
  • Evidence of fraud, duress, or unfairness
  • Lack of legal representation at the time of signing the agreement

Hence, it is crucial to have your prenuptial agreement drafted by a good family lawyer to ensure it meets all the legal requirements of a valid prenuptial agreement.
