Don’t cause a breakup when asking for a prenuptial agreement

Many people shy away from asking for a prenuptial agreement because they don't know what to expect.

On one side, they know that creating a prenuptial agreement will put them in a better place. Conversely, they also know that this could cause trouble between them and the person they love.

There are steps you can take to ask for a prenuptial agreement without causing a breakup, including:

  • Don't issue demands: Rather than tell the person that you want a prenuptial agreement and he or she needs to sign it, you should have an open and honest conversation about the pros and cons.
  • Share your fears: It's not always easy to do, but you need to share your fears so that your partner knows where you are coming from. This isn't a time to hide your true feelings.
  • Remain calm: It may not be easy to do, especially if the conversation is not going as planned, but you need to remain calm as to avoid escalating the conversation into an argument.
  • Listen to the other person: You may have plenty to say, but that doesn't mean you should dominate the conversation. Take the time to truly hear out your partner, as this will give you a better idea of where he or she is coming from.

There are many steps you can take to work toward the creation of a prenuptial agreement, all with the help of your partner. There are also mistakes you can make that will put you in a worse position.

If you're ready to create a prenuptial agreement, get on the same page with your partner and then proceed in a slow and steady manner with the help of an experienced attorney.
