A few months ago, we wrote a post about prenuptial agreements and how they can prove to be very beneficial for a couple that is about to walk down the aisle. Given their importance and value, you may think that prenups are impregnable contracts. This stigma has followed prenups around for a long time, and the stigma is a myth. In truth, prenups are susceptible to legal challenges if they aren't properly drafted and implemented.

As you have this difficult conversation with your spouse, your adorable golden retriever walks up, wagging his tail. The two of you bought him together years ago.
