There is often a great amount of misunderstanding when it comes to the
topic of prenuptial agreements. Marriage is viewed as one of our society's
most sacred bonds. Arguments against a prenuptial agreement are that it
makes a marriage into a financial agreement rather than an intimate bond
of love. These agreements, however, can be considered as an intelligent
decision for many couples because it forces the individuals to consider
the financial ramifications of marriage. In the event of
divorce, a prenuptial agreement can also prevent unnecessary conflict and preserve
the family dynamic.

Uniform Premarital Agreement Act (UPAA). The Act's purpose is to set

the UPAA. Prenuptial agreements have many purposes.
