Statistically January is the month when most marriages break down. There are a number of reasons that are said to be behind this including financial strain and the overwhelming amount of time spent with your significant other half over the Christmas break. Also many people hold it together in the run-up to Christmas before facing up to the reality in January.
In a recent survey carried out over 50% of those who were asked said that if they had their time over again they would consider a pre-nup. But what are their reasons? Is it reasonable to plan for the risk that your marriage will prematurely end and that you should be financially prepared for this?
With just under two million marriages in Britain on shaky ground with factors such as the credit crunch playing a part, should a pre-nup be part of the wedding planning along with the flowers and table arrangements?
With the number of pre-nuptial agreements on the rise, many divorce firms in London are not only dealing with the fallout from the marriage but talking to couples before they walk down the aisle. It now seems that what was once only heard of for celebrities is now a normal part of family living in London.
