How to discuss a prenuptial agreement with your partner

Asking your soon-to-be-spouse to sign a prenuptial agreement is easier said than done. While it sounds like a good idea to you, once you bring your thoughts to light your spouse may take issue.

Of course, you shouldn't let the fear of disagreement stop you from discussing a prenuptial agreement with your partner. Instead, it's critical that you take the right approach to the conversation. Here's what you should do:

  • Focus on the benefits for the both of you: If it appears that you want a prenuptial agreement because it only benefits you, you're more likely to get push back from your partner. Explain the benefits for the both of you, as this makes it more appealing.
  • Don't argue, work together: Asking for a prenuptial agreement shouldn't lead to an argument. It's a time for you to work together on something that can benefit the both of you. An open and honest conversation is the best way to make progress.
  • Don't issue demands: If your partner pushes back and you become aggressive with your demands, it has the potential to result in a serious disagreement. And that's not what you want as you move toward your wedding day.

Even if your partner is on board with the idea of creating a prenuptial agreement, actually discussing the terms and conditions can be a challenge.

Fortunately, with the right approach, a willingness to compromise and enough time, you can work through the details of your prenuptial agreement so that you get it in place before your wedding day arrives.
