Premarital and Postnuptial Agreements

Premarital and Postnuptial Agreements

Premarital agreements, also known as prenuptial or antenuptial agreements, are contracts entered into prior to marriage. This is a very common and smart way to protect yourself and your future spouse. Premarital agreements establish the property and financial rights of each spouse in the event of a divorce. While no one wants to think about divorce before they are even married, the sad truth is that today 50% of marriages in the United States end up in divorce. This is why, depending on your current financial standing, it is important to consider creating a premarital agreement. #prenuptial

Same Sex Marriage Issues

In 2004 Massachusetts was the first state to legalize same sex marriage. Same sex marriage was legalized due to a ruling in favor of marriage equality in the 2003 case Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, 440 Mass. 309, 798 N.E. 2d 941, (2003). Following suit, in 2015 the U.S. Supreme Court decided the landmark case Obergefell v. Hodges, which ruled that denying same sex couples the right to marry was a violation of their constitutional rights. #samesexmarriage
