How does a prenuptial agreement protect a business?

While it may take a Pennsylvania couple some time to accept that their marriage is over and it is time to take the next step of getting the divorce, once the decision is made couples want to get through the motions quickly.

One way couples can plan to avoid the long drawn out process of property division is by entering into a prenuptial agreement at the time of the marriage.

Pennsylvania residents might remember reading a recent post highlighting the differences between millennial couples and those of previous generations.

Another way in which millennials are different from their older counterparts is their approach to bank accounts after marriage.

Are millenials more likely to sign prenups?
