Will asking for a prenuptial agreement lead to a breakup?

Once you decide to tie the knot, you don't want to do anything to rock the boat. While everyone argues from time to time, you want to enjoy the time leading up to your wedding.

If you're interested in asking your partner to sign a prenuptial agreement, you may have concerns that it could lead to a breakup. Rather than take a risk, there are a few things you can do to reduce the tension and work together on how to best move forward.

  • Have an open conversation: Don't issue demands, tell your partner what they have to do or make them feel bad. Instead, have an open conversation about the pros and cons of creating a prenuptial agreement.
  • Talk about your fears: You have a reason for wanting to create a prenuptial agreement, so bring it to light early on. There's nothing wrong with discussing your fears and your many reasons for wanting to go down this path. This is much better than hiding your true feelings.
  • Ask and answer questions: You're sure to have questions for your partner, especially if they're opposed to a prenuptial agreement. Just the same, your partner will have questions for you, so answer these to the best of your ability.
  • Don't rush: You want to get this out of the way as quickly as possible, but that doesn't mean you should rush the process. Doing so increases the likelihood of a mistake.

Even though asking for a prenuptial agreement can be stressful, it doesn't have to cause an argument or breakup. There are steps you can take to ease the tension and move forward as a unit.
