Episode 63: The Prenup Powwow

August 19, 2021

So, we’ve walked you through the moment you say “I do,” and we’ve talked in-depth about merging finances. But we need to take a step back and talk about prenups. The act of marriage is a beautiful thing but it carries a tremendous amount of legal significance. Join Cort and Katie as they break down the craziest prenups, list the pros and cons of this contract, discuss celebrity prenups, and talk about who needs one. Contrary to popular belief, they are not solely for the rich and famous. This binding contract between two people creates transparency and sets expectations for a couple when it comes to protecting assets. No, it’s not sexy. And yes, prenups get a bad rap. But it can be used to have important discussions and ensure your finances are handled correctly during and after marriage.
