When you have said "yes" and started planning the big day, there is one more thing you should consider doing - signing a prenuptial agreement. Not limited to just the rich and famous anymore, prenuptial agreements are becoming more popular amongst couples of all economic and social strata.
While signing a prenuptial agreement is often associated with those who have a lot of wealth, it can also be useful for other situations. If you have any assets that you want to protect, such as property or a business, a prenuptial agreement will ensure that the assets remain in your (or your child's) possession. Since a prenuptial agreement will hold true during a divorce or the death of a spouse, it is a vital legal document that will be respected by any court of law.
Depending on what state you reside in, there may be different laws regarding prenuptial agreements. But in most cases, both persons need to be present in order to sign the document before a judge.
