Prenuptial agreements do not carry the stigma that they once did, and today many couples choose to protect their assets through such an agreement. The postnuptial agreement, which is created after a couple is already married, is less well known by society. Just like prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements can be very helpful for property division during a divorce.
After a couple gets married, they will likely work out a way to combine their budgets, bank accounts, debts and personal belongings. Some couples may realize after tying the knot that protecting the assets they entered the marriage with would be a smart idea. Postnuptial agreements can be valuable way for these couples to ensure they are guaranteed ownership of certain items regardless of the marriage's future.
