Prenuptial agreements have long been popular among couples in the entertainment industry. Only recently have they begun to gain steam among us common folk. While many think they have too few assets to even consider drafting a prenup, more couples are beginning to see them as one of many prudent methods of protecting their individual financial futures.We currently live in an era in which more couples are becoming involved in second marriages. In fact, statistics in 2013 hints that at least one of the spouses that make up newly married couples has been previously married in at least 40 percent of all cases. Many of these spouses enter into the marriages with kids they had with their ex.

How signing a cohabitation agreement can protect your finances

In today's society, it's quite common for couples to either move in or buy a home together without first getting married. Many long-term couples tend to think that this provides them with some automatic legal rights to make certain decisions in their significant other's life. It doesn't. Unmarried couples must sign a few legally binding documents in order to be able to make certain financial or heath care decisions instead.

However, it is always the truth that breaks the mystique, and the truth is that a prenup can be defeated under certain circumstances, regardless of how “iron clad” it may be.
