Considering small stuff for property division during a divorce

No Texas couple is safe from a potential divorce, regardless of how the marriage starts or where the couple lives. The life that is built by two people becomes entangled in every aspect and going through the process of property division can be overwhelming. The house, cars, furniture, jewelry and other items are obvious for cataloging and dividing, but what about some of the not so obvious items, like airline miles and hotel points?

Wanting a prenuptial agreement doesn't make one the bad guy

The word "prenup" used to have many negative associations. The thought of gold diggers and those who would leave an unsuspecting partner financially devastated often spring to mind. Recently, having a prenuptial agreement or even bringing up the idea is no longer so taboo. Many young Texas couples see the agreement as a financial must if they are planning on getting married. But how does one approach the subject without sounding like a selfish, money-grubbing tightwad?

Prenuptial agreement leaves one ex with $12 million

Unfortunately, divorce is a reality for many Americans. For whatever reason, the relationship between spouses breaks down and the only remaining option is to leave the union and move on with one's life. Many wealthy people have in place a prenuptial agreement to help ensure that, should the tie that binds be severed, they will remain in the same financial state as before the vows were spoken. These agreements are just as valuable and advisable for those who have not attained celebrity status or accumulated millions in assets. With a prenuptial agreement in place, Texas courts will have less say over the division of assets in the event of divorce or death.  

Texas couples see the positives of getting a prenuptial agreement

With pending nuptials, many couples shudder to think about bringing up finances unless it is to talk about the wedding. But discussing money and assets, both separate and what will soon become joint, is a crucial step for many newly-engaged couples. Instead of thinking any negativity associated with a prenuptial agreement, many Texas couples are focusing more on the positive and promising aspects that having one can bring to a relationship.

Texas parents urge children to consider a prenuptial agreement

Many work their entire lives and save to accrue a savings and some assets. These assets are usually then left to any children once the owner passes on. Sometimes, the wealth one has worked so hard to achieve can be snatched away from the child whom it was intended for should a divorce occur. Urging engaged children to consider a prenuptial agreement could save the wealth that Texas parents worked so hard to pass on.

A prenuptial agreement can save a Texas retirement account

A marital breakup can be a hard life situation to go through. The dissolution of a family unit is never easy and the emotional stress can take a severe toll on the separating parties. Divorce and separation can also bring on financial pain, especially for partners who are not used to or have never had the responsibility of handling the couple's finances. Texas couples who are planning to marry should consider protecting their current and future financial assets with a prenuptial agreement.

Seeking legal advice for a toxic Texas divorce

Relationships come to an end for many reasons. When a Texas couple decides that they can no longer foresee a future together, separating may be the next logical step. As the marriage ends, most will agree that an amicable divorce is in the best interest of both parties. Sometimes, one spouse may become impossible to work with and make the process of severing all ties with them hurtful, emotionally draining and time-consuming.

A prenuptial agreement can protect Texas inheritences

When couples decide it is time to take the next step in their relationship, buying the ring, getting engaged and planning the wedding become the focus. Many Texas couples don't consider a prenuptial agreement as a necessity or think that the thought of one sours the blissful mood. Protecting one's assets and keeping a future spouse's pre-marriage debts as just that, the spouse's, can be the first step to an open and honest marriage.

Prenuptial agreements for Texas residents on subsequent marriage

The breakup of a marriage is a tough situation to go through, yet many people tend to do it more than once. With divorcees having been through the breakup process before, one could assume that they have learned from their mistakes. Recent studies have concluded that this simply is not the case. Many Texas residents on their second or third marriage repeat their mistakes with regard to a divorce and cost themselves more money and anguish in the long run. Prenuptial agreements can help to alleviate the financial mess that the dissolution of a marriage can create, regardless of which number marriage it may be.

More Texas Millennials are seeking a prenuptial agreement
