Pre-Nuptial Agreements and Co-Habitation Agreements; E Rex Makin & Co - Pre-Nuptial Agreements Advertising Feature February is the most romantic time of the year but Gill Scales, Partner at E. Rex Makin & Co explains why many couples are now taking a pragmatic approach to love.

Times have changed. Couples are meeting and forming relationships in new ways, living together rather than getting married, and more and more celebrities are falling in and out of love, all over the media.

People are now taking nancial precautions before making a commitment to each other - particularly those who are bringing signicant assets into the relationship - by entering into a pre-nuptial agreement before getting married.

Media speculation surrounding Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's recent separation suggests that she may pay dearly for letting her heart rule her head by not entering into a pre-nuptial agreement with her now estranged husband.

It is believed that she has since encouraged best friend Kimberley Walsh to enter into just such an agreement before her recent wedding.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements provide legal protection in a variety of situations. ey are particularly common amongst those who are getting married for the second or third time. ese couples recognise that a pre-nuptial agreement has an important part to play in protecting assets and securing the inheritance of children from any previous relationships.

If you have accumulated personal assets from your career success, a business, property, an inheritance, investments or future pensions or if you have a divorce settlement from a previous relationship, this type of agreement could give you the protection and reassurance that you need.

Unmarried couples who want legal protection for their assets can also enter into a co-habitation agreement. We are seeing an increase in people seeking advice in relation to these. Couples are discussing issues sensibly and openly and coming to fair agreements.

At E. Rex Makin and Co we recommend that couples seriously consider putting a legal agreement in place now to avoid stress, heartache and expense later on down the line should the relationship break down.
