Real people confess how prenups affect their relationships
For many people, getting married is one of these occasions. And although the union of marriage represents love and commitment, it is also a legal agreement to share your life and all of your assets with another person -- this inevitably brings money into the question. The way people protect their own financial assets in preparation for a potential divorce or separation, is by signing a prenuptial agreement. And while this is often a run-of-the mill decision, it can also cause huge rifts in relationship. Is signing a prenup essentially agreeing that a divorce is inevitable?
