Should you get a post-nup if you aren't divorcing?

As a couple in Florida who's considering getting a divorce, you may also be looking into a post-nuptial agreement. Fortunately for you, getting a post-nuptial agreement doesn't set your divorce in stone. In fact, it can be a way to help your marriage mend, if that's the route you want to take.

ABC News states that post-nuptial agreements are the way to go if you are looking at the possibility, or eventuality, of a divorce. Not only will post-nuptial agreements give you a written account of who is getting what, but it might also help you to organize your divorce better if you have everything written down and agreed upon. This will also help keep your finances safe.

But what if you aren't actually planning on getting a divorce yet? Post-nuptials can still be made even if that's not in the immediate works. If you and your spouse just feel like you need the extra security due to turbulence in your relationship, it's a great option to have available. If you've entered a rocky patch and still want to work things out, but also want the safety net of a financial backup plan, this might be for you.

Another benefit of writing pre-nuptial agreements without immediate plans to divorce is that it allows you to write it with a clear mind. The anger and bitterness that sometimes accompanies divorce won't be with you in this moment, allowing your agreement to be written more fairly. Post-nuptial agreements may not be right for every situation, even so. However, if these benefits align with your overall beliefs or visions, you may want to consider looking into them.
