Prenuptial agreements are not just for the rich. If you have property such as a home, possibility of inheriting property, own your own business, help put a spouse through school, or a spouse helps put you through school, etc. a prenupt might be something you would want to consider. A prenupt protects both parties involved.
Women these days are making just as much (if not more) money than men, so getting a prenupt before marriage isn't just something to benefit the man anymore. Grant it, the mention of "prenupt" might make a man or woman run away. Especially if they feel that the mere idea of one is a sign that the relationship isn't as solid as it should be or that the party requesting the other person to sign one doesn't believe "in their love" enough. A prenupt isn't personal, it's business. It's a way to protect yourself. In the ideal world, "Until death do us part" would be true 100 percent of the time, but unfortunately divorce does happen--especially if relationships are based on false pretenses.
