While celebrities might appear to lead an entirely different lifestyle than yours, including starring in hit TV shows or performing on stage in front of thousands of individuals, the fact is, there are some things celebrities do when they marry or divorce that you may be able to incorporate into your own life in the event you are faced with either one. No matter who you are, the process behind getting married or filing for divorce works the same way. So, if you’re interested in learning what some celebrities do when they marry or divorce that might be beneficial to you, read on and see if these tips are something that you too should consider adopting.
- Consider a prenuptial agreement.
One of the first things most celebrities do when getting married is have their attorney draw up a prenuptial agreement [Source: CNBC]. A prenuptial agreement is a contract between the two parties getting married that states that the property that originally belonged to them will remain theirs in the event they decide to divorce. While celebrities might have a significant amount of money they earned over their career put away or acquired assets that are worth millions, the fact is, anyone can benefit from a prenup.
According to Bankrate, “any couple who brings personal or business assets to the marriage can benefit from a prenup.” The truth is, we don’t know what the future holds, whether that is a long-lasting marriage or one that ends with divorce. And by signing a prenup, you are simply being cautious with the property or assets you worked so hard to acquire so that you don’t lose them in the event the marriage doesn’t work out. But, prenups can be difficult to bring up and sometimes, makes couples feel a little uncomfortable so you might want to schedule a consultation with a family law attorney in Naples, FL before deciding whether a prenup is something you and your spouse might want/need.
Because nearly “half of all marriages end in divorce,” it is always important to consider how you can protect yourself and your assets from the unexpected obstacles the future might hold. The reality is, many couples who find themselves faced with divorce often battle with one another over who gets what and how much each is entitled to receive. And you don’t have to be wealthy for a battle to arise. But, prenups can help alleviate that battle, to some degree, as you are putting a contract in place that safeguards your assets from being divided in the event you and your spouse split.
