Whether or not a post-uptial agreement is applied depends largely on the state in which you live. Some countries have a tough approach to enforcing post-up agreements. If there is evidence that the parties have not disclosed their financial information in a comprehensive and fair manner, the entire agreement could be rejected. Meanwhile, a handful of states, including Ohio, do not recognize post-marital agreements at all or recognize them only in extremely limited circumstances. In Canada, post-marriage agreements are allowed and, in fact, most provinces have laws that expressly authorize them.

The reason is the legal theory which, before marriage, none of the spouses has any legal rights, so that a spouse does not give up anything by signing a marriage contract.

They require future spouses to negotiate the division of property and liability for the debts they hold, if their marriage takes a bad turn. But the same questions may arise at some point, or become more important — long after they have tied the knot. As a result, post-nuptial, or post-nupized agreements are gaining popularity. “There were a lot of moving parts and different factors that we were going to combine in our relationship,” says Ben. Their post-nuptial arrangement, or post-nup, allowed them to have a marriage on their own terms.
“We wanted this agreement as a guide,” says Krista. “An understanding that we shared in a formal sense, but also in the knowledge that we could change.” The lawyers interviewed for this exhibit were distinguished by their conception of the agreements reached in such circumstances. “My experience is that these post-Martian contracts are rarely successful,” says Steve Mindel, the Los Angeles lawyer. “If someone wants a post-parental agreement for infidelity, it`s very difficult to negotiate these documents because there`s no trust,” Mindel said. “Most of the time, people in this situation would send them first to a marriage counsellor to see if they could overcome their discord.
