As your wedding day gets closer and closer, you may feel more and more pressure to discuss the creation of a prenuptial agreement with your soon to be spouse. If you don’t talk about this now, you’ll lose the ability to do so once you tie the knot.

If you want a prenuptial agreement, here are some tips you can follow when discussing your feelings with your partner:

  • Ask for their thoughts: Rather than tell them that you’ve thought it over and feel that a prenuptial agreement is the right idea, ask them for feedback on this legal document. You may find that they’ve also been thinking about a prenuptial agreement, which makes it much easier to get on the same page.
  • Don’t issue demands: This is one of the quickest ways to drive a stake between you and your partner before your wedding day. Focus on the pros and cons, all while giving your partner time to process everything. Issuing demands is no good for either of you.
  • Take your time: If you leave enough time between your first discussion and your wedding day, you don’t have to rush through the process. You have plenty of time to carefully move forward one important detail at a time.

This is the type of approach you should take if you want a prenuptial agreement. This allows you to share your true feelings with your partner, without making them feel like you’re having second thoughts.

Once the two of you agree to create a prenuptial agreement, turn your attention to what it will and won’t include. Make sure that you have experienced guidance as you proceed.
