I really like Richard Branson's very sensible and pragmatic view on prenups.
They're not the most romantic document to discuss with your loved one, but as Richard points out, they can play such an important part in keeping relations civil in the event of a marriage breakdown.
A real benefit of having a prenup is that you are discussing and planning matters now, when you're both in a happy place, rather than dealing with matters when you're disgruntled and upset.
You wouldn't do business with someone without a contract, so should you be getting married without one?
It's certainly food for thought..
For some time, my sister Lindy has been campaigning that every couple that enters into marriage should have a prenup. Not to protect their wealth in case of divorce, but to make the process of divorce easier on everyone. I agree with her that, while signing a prenup may seem unromantic, it is a very sensible thing to do – and if couples are not happy to make a prenup then something is amiss. Prenups have the power to play a very important part in keeping divorcing families as civil as possible.
