Movies often feature prenups, or prenuptial agreements, as this thing that rich people get when they pretty much know their marriage will end in a divorce. Today, Pete and Seth talk about these mysterious beasts. Are prenups really signals of inevitable divorce? Are they all that bad? And are they just for rich people?

Turns out, prenups can be quite helpful even when it’s not about large piles of money. They can also help if you’re marrying someone with huge amounts of debt! Did you know that?

And there are also postnups, which is basically an agreement put together after you’re already married. Harder to sort out but still viable.

Still, don’t just write it down on the back of a napkin. These are legal documents and require a lot of thought. So tune in to this episode to learn more about these mysterious agreements.
