Farmers and ranchers preparing for marriage in Alabama might want to consider a recent trend that many landowners are following across the nation. Signing a prenuptial agreement, some say, provides a means of security and prevents potential worries for a soon-to-be married couple.

Language is important when it comes to a prenuptial agreement

Prior to marriage, many couples decide to enter into a contract which commonly determines property divisions and spousal support in the event of a future divorce. Alabama couples might be interested in a recent decision made by a court in another state. The ruling stated that one couple's prenuptial agreement, executed abroad in 1997, is not valid because one of the spouses could not read the language in which the contract was written.  At the time the agreement was executed, the bride-to-be relied upon a verbal translation offered by her fiance.

Many people are also beginning to use prenups to deal with one other item that the law considers property -- the family pet.

Prenuptial agreement covers more than just assets

Most people believe that prenups are only a preparation for a divorce in the future.

This can help prevent or at least decrease the chances of Alabama couples having bitter arguments in the future.
