Question: I’m a stay-at-home mom. My two children are 5 and 3 years old, so I haven’t been able to make money for the past few years. Meanwhile, my husband has purchased most of what we own. Now that we are getting a divorce, do I get half of it? Will he get to keep everything, including the house?
Many people consider a prenuptial agreement before they walk down the aisle and get married to their one true love. Even though some people may think that prenuptial agreements are an "anti-love" contract, these documents actually serve many critical purposes. They protect the spouses in case of divorce; they can expedite the divorce process; and it affords the spouses a chance to talk about some important issues before they get married.
