What are some important discussions that a couple should have before getting married? 

Check out the Modern Legal Handbook on Items to discuss before the wedding day. We also recommend attending our Virtual Prenup Lunch and Learn hosted the 2nd Tuesday of each month. 

Do you have advice for couples working through these topics? 

The best piece of advice is to not be afraid to have the "prenup" discussion. From there, the two future spouses can determine if they want a prenup to define certain legal rights both during the marital relationship and in the event of a separation/divorce (instead of the government). It is critical for any couple to enter a marriage fully informed of the legal implications. 


How can Modern Legal help our couples be set for a successful, healthy partnership? 

By having the "prenup" discussion, couples engage in a process of talking about the tricky stuff before the wedding date. This provides the ability to build a stronger foundation upon which a healthy marriage can be built.
