Prenuptial agreements are on the rise – and not just among the rich and famous. Tribune News reported on a recent survey in which 73 percent of attorneys cited an increase in prenups, driven by a growing demand from women.
“More women are bringing assets into the marriage,” a Minneapolis lawyer told the Tribune News.
Another attorney told the Tribune News he’d draw up agreements for clients earning as little as $40,000 a year. That shouldn’t be surprising, a third lawyer said; people of modest means are in greater need of the protection.
What do you think? Is there a sound practical reason for desiring a prenup? Or does it reflect a fundamental lack of trust?
