A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract that two prospective spouses sign before getting married. In this agreement, the couple agree beforehand on how to handle issues that might come up if they decide to split up. Generally, the agreement outlines how the couple is to share their marital property and debt in case they end up divorcing. The agreement only works or is valid if both spouses sign it without coercion and with full knowledge of what they are doing. There also should not be any aspect of the agreement that is extremely unfair to either of the parties.
