I tend to associate the word "prenup" with that Sex and the City episode when Charlotte's wealthy fiancé Trey MacDougal springs a tricky contract on her well into the engagement. But according to the Guardian, it's not just rich men who are asking for the in-case-of-divorce contracts. More women than ever are requesting prenuptial agreements before they walk down the aisle — even if they don't have millions in the bank.
One expert looks to the recession as a reason why brides-to-be want to protect their assets with a contract that states how money and property will be divided upon divorce. With all the economic uncertainty, working women want to make sure they can hold onto the money they've earned if something goes wrong.
Would it be hard for you to plan for your divorce before you even got married, or do you think it's practical to have a back-up plan?
