Prenups are becoming more and more popular

Prenuptial agreements used to be something that the average person never considered. They carried a bit of a stigma, for one thing, and some people felt that just bringing it up was offensive. They were also mostly used by the wealthy, as they had more at stake.

These days, though, more and more couples are getting prenuptial agreements, even when they're not wealthy. It is clear that the younger generations have embraced them in a new way.

One reason for this could be the fact that divorce rates soared after the development of no-fault divorce cases. That mass increase has leveled off, but it means that a lot of today's young couples grew up in a world where divorce was far more common. It's easier for them to accept than it was for previous generations.

Another reason is that people often delay getting married into their late 20s or even their 30s. You don't see nearly as many couples just getting married right out of high school. They put it off and focus on careers and dating relationships. This means that they may have far more assets when they actually do get married than couples had in the past, so the use of a prenup just seems to make a bit more sense to them.

It's still true that most couples do not use prenups, but it's also clear that they're beginning to see how useful of a tool these can be. If you want to use one, it's important to know exactly how to get it set up properly before the wedding.
