Prenuptial Agreement


I was going through an article about the growing Divorce Cases in India… Also some of my friends who have applied for a divorce told me how the law is one sided towards… Also our legal system is very vintage and not upgraded to the times…

Considering the reality and leaving away the emotional part it is always better to have a exit clause attached to a marriage… Exit clause are common in Business Partnerships…

When I went and further researched about exit clause in Marriage Agreement I came across the term “[wptabtitle] prenup, premarital agreement, antenuptial agreement[/wptabtitle] [wptabcontent]Prenuptial Agreement[/wptabcontent]” which is very common agreement signed between the newly wed during the time of marriage…

A prenuptial agreement, antenuptial agreement, or premarital agreement, commonly abbreviated to prenup or prenupt, is a contract entered into prior to marriage, civil union or any other agreement prior to the main agreement by the people intending to marry or contract with each other. The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely, but commonly includes provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce or breakup of marriage. They may also include terms for the forfeiture of assets as a result of divorce on the grounds of adultery; further conditions of guardianship may be included as well.

This agreement has been integrated with couple of religions like islam & judaism and agreement will be read before the marriage… Also a lot of western countries have started to legalize this agreement…

As far as I read this agreement is not valid in India (this is just an information i got it from net and not confirmed from legal experts)… There are lot of people who have started to advocate the need for this agreement and I’m support this agreement to be legalized in India and help save lots of couple fight and loose fortune in legal battle…
