In some circumstances, a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement can be essential to protect premarital assets or inherited assets, or to protect children from a previous marriage. Yet such agreements can be fraught with peril.  If handled poorly, a prenuptial agreement can cause friction between prospective spouses.

For these reasons, Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements should be planned well in advance of marriage, and should be handled with sensitivity, tact and care.
