A premarital agreement is a legal contract you enter in before getting married, to ensure that you and your spouse-to-be have a clear understanding on the division of finances in the event of a divorce or death. The terms of a premarital agreement can vary, depending on your mutual wishes. It can cover how to split property purchased during the marriage. It can also cover how to split items you both owned prior to the marriage. Premarital agreements can also decide who will pay specific bills over the course of the marriage.
A postmarital agreement is a legal contract you enter into after marriage. The purpose of the agreement is to settle financial and marital issues that are present within the marriage. A postmarital agreement can cover current and future debts and can also address mundane issues such as the household budget and day-to-day concerns.
