In recent years, many people in Tennessee have come to embrace the benefits of prenuptial agreements more than they did several decades ago. No longer are these marital contracts thought of as only needed by the rich and famous. Everyday couples now realize they can get valuable protections with these documents. For those couples that did not get a prenup before they got married, there is still the chance to be protected by creating a postnuptial agreement.
Being asked by his or her fiancée to sign a prenuptial agreement may come as a shock to one preparing to be married in Germantown. Yet for as unromantic a notion as that may seem, many across the country are increasingly choosing to sign such compacts. In fact, information compiled by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and shared by CNBC shows 63 percent of attorneys report a marked increase in the number of couples seeking prenuptial agreements in recent years.
