Perhaps a prenuptial agreement can lessen the chance of divorce

Marriage and divorce can be looked at as two sides of the same coin. Marriage, when flipped on its head, can lead to a divorce. One of the most common causes of a marriage leading to divorce in Ohio is a misunderstanding or deception regarding a couple's finances.

Full financial disclosure is required of both sides in a divorce negotiation. Perhaps if a full disclosure was done prior to marriage, the financial disharmony leading to a divorce would not occur. Prenuptial agreements are often looked at as something pertaining to wealthy marriages where millions of dollars are at stake in the event of a divorce. While most people don't have millions to be concerned about, one's own financial holdings are no less important.

A prenuptial agreement can be a good idea for any couple entering into marriage. If financial discord is one predictor of the chance of divorce then dealing with that issue upfront might increase the chance of a marriage lasting. A prenup can also predetermine the disbursement of assets in addition to just financial ones and can include real estate, cars and other physical assets. In addition, a periodic financial review will allow both partners to have familiarity with the ongoing financial state of affairs.

A couple contemplating marriage in Ohio may wish to consider creating a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot. No one wants to enter marriage expecting to divorce but a significant number of marriages do end in divorce. An experienced family law attorney can assist one with developing a prenup and by doing so may help to increase one's odds of having a long happy marriage.
