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.

A prenup without full disclosure may be invalid

If you're thinking of signing a prenuptial agreement with your spouse, make sure that you fully disclose all of your assets and all of your debts. That means everything you own, all the money in your savings, anything you have in investments, any business ownership percentages and all the rest. If you have financial policies like a pension or a life insurance plan, you want to disclose these, as well.
