Once You Pop the Question, How Do You Spring the Prenup?

Asking your fiance for a prenup doesn’t have to spoil the joy of your engagement. First, be sure to give your betrothed plenty of time to think about it. No one likes to be rushed. Next, try to put it in context and explain why you need a prenup. You might present the prenup along with wills, health care powers of attorney, living wills, insurance policies and other estate planning documents. Finally, encourage your fiance to hire independent legal counsel. You might even offer to pay the bill. Having separate representation will allow your loved one to ask questions that might be uncomfortable for you or your lawyer to answer. It also might ensure that your agreement is enforceable.
