Marriage contracts vary according to the situation of each couple and each marriage. There are some areas covered by pre-nups, let`s look below. 9. CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES AND RELATED PROPERTY The parties acknowledge that their respective property may increase, decrease or remain equal during the marriage and hereby explicitly and irrevocably declare that no change in the financial situation of either party shall affect this marriage contract. None of you have a lot of savings. If neither spouse has significant assets or property, a marriage contract will rarely be useful, as property protection is the main purpose of a prenup. We have seen cases where one partner is thrifty and responsible for spending money, while the other spends irresponsibly. Secondly, in this regard, spending habits must be taken into account. But even if you`re not writing a formal document, you need to be able to talk openly about finances and not just fun things like the idea of buying a house one day, but also hard things like how much debt you have, your creditworthiness, and your financial obligations to others (like family allowances or caring for the elderly). Many marital disputes arise from questions of money.
It is beneficial that you and your partner can talk about finances in a voluntary and rational way before problems arise. Keep it in the family. If you are concerned about getting children from a previous relationship than your beneficiaries, be sure to spell it out in a marriage contract.. . . .
