Marriage, divorce and prenuptial agreements

The prenuptial agreement is perhaps one of the most controversial parts of planning a wedding. Some people view the prenuptial agreement as planning for the end of the marriage; however, the prudent Connecticut couple looks at it as planning for success. While it may not be the most romantic part of the marital celebration, it is important because it is an essential tool in discussing views on finances, marital property, expectations and even children. As an added bonus, in the event of a divorce, this agreement will then serve as a tool in distributing assets and liabilities.

When this happens, child custody issues can become a concern.
