Many couples fear introducing the idea of a “prenup” because they believe that their partner may mistake it as they not having trust in their relationship. However, many realize that a prenup can strengthen your relationship as it allows both partners to communicate about financial matters and ensure that they have a common goal before walking down the aisle.
