You can bet your bottom dollar Meghan will be signing a Pre-Nuptial Agreement!

prenuptial agreement

On 20 October 2010, the UK Supreme Court handed down its long-awaited judgement in the leading pre-nup case, Radmacher v Granatino. The President of the Supreme Court, with an unassailable judicial majority of eight to one, stated that pre-nups will now be upheld unless there are compelling reasons to the contrary.

So amid all of the excitement of choosing the dress and planning a wedding another item to add to the wedding “to do list” will be to negotiate and execute a pre-nup agreement.

Although rather less romantic than dresses or tiaras, pre-nuptial agreements are becoming more and more common and not just for the rich and famous where people are getting married later in life and they have acquired assets and businesses that they wish to protect, or when people are marrying for the second, third or fourth time.

The advantages of having a pre-nup is that not only does it minimises the risk of a large financial pay out it also reduces the distress and the potential for acrimonious conflict not to mention the legal expense of protracted negotiations and possibly court proceedings in order to reach a financial settlement at a time when people are emotionally raw.

Does the existence of a pre-nup taint the future of the marriage? I don’t think so, Meghan strikes me as a woman who knows her own mind and what she is about and she has proven she has staying power. She loves her man, he loves her and I’d like to think that any agreement will be left to gather dust.
