Prenuptial agreements are a delicate subject. How does one approach the love of one's life by requesting that they sign a document that will prevent them from obtaining some of your assets in a divorce? And maybe for a first marriage of a young couple with few assets, a prenuptial agreement may be unnecessary.
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.
