People need prenuptial agreements because while you're in love with someone and you're going to marry them, marriage isn't all about love, marriage is a very serious business. A prenuptial agreement or at least meeting with an attorney to talk about a prenuptial agreement will give you an idea of what your legal right and your potential damages to your assets are when you get married. I recommend all small business owners to get a prenuptial agreement. If you're a small business owner, there are special issues which affect you in a divorce case that you can cover in a prenuptial agreement. If you fail to do that you can lose your business in the divorce.
