Signing a prenuptial agreement is not a precursor to a divorce. Over the past couple of decades the rate at which couples across the nation are signing a prenuptial agreement has increased a significant amount. One family law attorney in Atlanta reports, "Overall, I'd say prenups are ten times more common than they were 20 years ago, when I started practicing. It's not taboo anymore." The same holds true in Texas as well, where a surge of prenuptial agreements have been signed.
Sure, it doesn't sound romantic to talk about a prenuptial agreement before walking down the aisle, but it looks like more people are looking beyond the romantic notion of marriage and using reason to prepare for and protect their financial futures from divorce.
