"Pre-nup talk" recommended for new couples

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

As a happy couple prepares for their big day, the last thing they want to think about is what will happen to their assets if things don't work out.

Financial experts say it's important for couples to have the "pre-nup talk". A pre-nup is a contract that spells out how assets will be distributed in the event of a divorce or death…and it's not just for celebrities and millionaires.

"A prenup is not an agreement that says ‘I'm betting against our marriage,' what it really is saying is it's an insurance policy," says Founder and CEO of Learnvest.com, Alexa vonTobel.

Experts also encourage the pre-nup is put in writing, and the signing is witnessed by a lawyer.
