How to Save Your Marriage with a Marriage Contract

Financial stresses, especially when they are caused by one spouse more than the other, can put marriages, and common law relationships, into trouble. But that trouble does not mean there has to be a separation. Top family law lawyers can advise about options that can keep the family and relationship together. One way to do that is by using a marriage contract or cohabitation agreement one spouse can protect his or her savings, assets, credit or inheritance from the other spouse – especially where that spouse has been financially irresponsible. Putting such a contract in place can remove the tension between spouses that exists when one spouse feels his or her partner is dragging him or her down or holding him or her back financially. Removing that source of conflict can allow the marriage or relationship to flourish and blossom.
