But for a moment, indulge us. What if your parents have substantial assets that you may inherit someday, or own their own business? Even if you do not have a great deal on your marriage day, you might be concerned about the fate of a family business or a vacation home or cabin that has been in the family for decades.
A prenuptial agreement can insure you do not lose such an asset should untoward events occur. However, even if you do not need to protect assets, discussions that would implicate a prenuptial agreement may provide an additional value as a discussion of a rather important value for a marriage. That of how you and your spouse will treat money.
Money may not be the root of all evil, but it certainly causes problems in many marriages. If you and your spouse have very different operational behavior when it comes to money, it may bode poorly for your future.
A detailed discussion before you get married as to your spending and saving habits, and comfort levels for debt are very good pieces of information to have, and maybe neither future partner had given it much thought.
For the longevity of your marriage and for your happiness during that marriage, it might be a good idea to give it that thought.
