The decision to move in together is not one that most couples take lightly. Regardless of whether the decision is part of getting married, couples often must make adjustments in learning to tolerate or accept differences in taste and style when it comes to personal property.

For that reason, more owners are seeking to draft a new type of prenuptial agreement referred to as a pet-nup.

Millennials in Texas, like so many generations before them, have traits that are unique to them. Maybe because they have seen so many changes in their young lives they seem to have more unique traits than prior generations. They don't know about life before the internet and few of them remember a time before smart phones. They are a very entrepreneurial generation and are choosing to marry later. In addition, more of them are getting married with a prenuptial agreement in place.
Virtually every Texas marriage will end with either death or divorce. In either case, assets will need to be distributed and bills will need to be paid.

Roses and diamond rings are symbols of love and one's future together. But, roses die and the shiny diamond can lose its sparkle.

In some cases, it may be wise to consider a prenuptial agreement as a part of planning for the future.
Many Texas residents, especially those considering marriage, or those who are already married, may be familiar with common issues that need to be discussed before two lives become a shared one. A prenuptial agreement is commonly defined as a contract in contemplation of marriage concerning the ownership of their respective assets should the marriage come to an end. In the past, these agreements generally indicated hammering out ownership of physical assets, such as property or finances. This is still the case, but with an added twist for the Facebook generation.
When the word "marriage" begins to become a mainstay in conversations for young Texas couples, the bliss and excitement can often outweigh the serious need to talk about finances, both present and future. The very idea of sharing everything with a person one feels is his or her soulmate could cloud honest truths that can lead to financial and emotional disaster later down the road. Speaking with one's betrothed about money, assets and the idea of a prenuptial agreement may be a wise choice to helping couples develop a closer bond and preserving the couples' financial future should a divorce loom on the horizon.
