Atlanta, GA – (WiredPRNews.com) It seems as though in recent years, marriage has become even more of a desirable step for couples to take. It gives you more financial stability, by combining incomes, especially in a tough economy, and what’s more? All of your friends and family members seem to be tying the knot these days. Many don’t want to be left behind and see that their biological clock is ticking. Statistics show that over 49% of Metro Atlanta household’s are married couples. This number is very high, considering the amount of engaged, cohabitants who may become engaged, and singles.
In past, but very recent history, many have praised being single and independent. Apparently, a shift is now taking place. But, with a higher rate of marriage, comes a higher rate of divorce— commonsensical in the least, contrary to popular belief. Many tend to rush into marriage, without thinking about the consequences if it does not work out, but many also accompany marriage with a prenuptial agreement.
Prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly popular, because of the fact that you both keep what is rightfully yours. Rushing into marriage without this legally binding agreement, can prove to be costly in the event of a divorce. There could be many obligations and exchange of assets, depending on your situation.
