Pre-Nuptial Agreements


Pre-Nuptial Agreements are contracts which people who are about to get married create which stipulates what happens if the marraige ends in divorce. Currently Ireland and Britain are the only countries in Europe whose courts don't recognise prenuptial agreements. That said it is possible to create a prenuptial agreement.

The argument against signing a prenups is that a marraige will certainly end in seperation as people have already considered their desired consequences.

Although there is no reason to believe that the law will change there is demand for it as Irish people are getting married later in life and are accumulating more wealth and assets before they get married. There was also a time in Ireland when divorce was considered taboo however that has become part of legal system. Courts in England have already considered prenuptials in court however they remain non-legally binding.
