A marriage is not only a relationship. It is a legal partnership. While your relationship may be governed by you and your partner, your legal partnership is governed by the state of Maryland. Many engaged couples want to take over the legal control of their marriage, and they do this by entering into prenuptial relationships.
Deciding to draft and sign a prenuptial agreement does not mean you are expecting your marriage to fail. It means you want to stipulate the terms and conditions of your legal financial partnership.
Prenuptial agreements are important tools for those who are bringing substantial assets into marriage, those who are getting married for the second or third time, and those with children from previous relationships. When one fiancé has a large income, a significant debt load or is expecting an inheritance, it is also wise to consider creating a prenuptial agreement.
