Until Debt Do We Part

Prenuptial agreements are usually associated with wealthy couples, at least one of whom is looking to protect their assets. For example, Britney Spears just signed one ensuring that, upon divorce, her new husband Sam Asghari will not receive any of Spears’ multi-million dollar fortune earned before the wedding date. (Toxic!) But prenups are no longer legal tools deployed just for richer people trying to maintain wealth. They’re increasingly being recommended for poorer folks who want to make sure that if they get divorced, their exes won’t saddle them with a debt.
