Prenups Protect In Death

Prenups are always a good idea, but many folks do not realize that prenups do more than protect you in the event of a divorce: they also protect your wishes in the event of your death.  There are statutes which permit your spouse to take a certain amount of your assets in the event of your death regardless of what your will says (if you even have a will).  If you want to ensure your wishes govern the disposition of your assets after your death instead of a statute, you and your fiance must execute a prenup.  This is especially important to consider if you are entering into a second marriage and want to ensure the bulk of your assets are saved for your children.
