Every marriage is different. Some couples just dive into the process, believing that their love is strong enough to keep their marriage going. Others seek to talk things out before entering their union. And even some prefer to take the time to talk things out and plan for the future and if the marriage ends in divorce. Although it is not a romantic topic to discuss before marriage, deciding on a prenuptial agreement can help the couple address potential divorce issues if the marriage fails.
Although it is commonplace to have a prenuptial agreement to address a divorce if one were to occur in the future, this is not always the case.
