Prenups with Lisa Buckridge
Solicitor and family law expert, Lisa Buckridge joins us today. We’re talking prenuptial agreements.
Why might you consider one? How do you raise the conversation? And what if you wish you had one but didn’t think about it before you got married.
We may associate them with US soaps. Lisa explains the benefits of having open and honest conversations at outset. Much easier than trying to do it when a relationship has ended.
Rather than thinking of it as a legally binding document, is there a case for it being the foundation of good communication?
Who are considering preps:
- 2nd marriages
- Those with a family business
- 1st time marriages in their 30s
- Those with inheritances
3.45 Why they are becoming more common in the UK
6.57 They are not legally binding, but Lisa explains “magnetic importance”
8.25 What is “duress” and how it affects prenups
11.00 If you don’t have children at the time of the marriage
