Beware of Opposition to Prenuptial Agreements
When couples wish to enter into a prenuptial agreement, they may find opposition from family, friends and their religious institution due to perceived implications of the inherent agreement. In addition, some individuals may find that their partner is opposed to a written agreement that is to be utilized in the event of a divorce. 
Couples should openly discuss their issues regarding a prenuptial agreement and any issues regarding what is expected throughout the marriage. While couples may not be able to agree on a prenuptial agreement, they can still open the lines of communication to ensure that they have an equal understanding of expectations.
Discussions regarding prenuptial agreements can be difficult and stressful. However, it is much easier to discuss them before they are necessary. Couples tend to be much more fair and realistic about expectations regarding distribution of assets,  when they are still together. However, couples that divorce without a prenuptial agreement, may have a much more difficult time in working out the details.

After completing the agreement, the couple is more prepared to handle difficulties that they may encounter throughout the marriage.
