      Great article. So good to hear that you’re being practical. Money is one of the biggest reasons people get divorced, so if you can agree on some ground rules I think you’ll be much better off down the road. (I don’t think two people would ever 100% agree on finances!)

      Protecting yourself is smart, and not just against divorce but if one spouse is incapacitated in some way, because those things happen.

      It’s sad but true on the divorce factor. I believe that having conversations about money upfront help to set the tone around money moving forward into the relationship. I think it’s important to have shared goals and expectations but you don’t have to agree on everything, and nor should you.

      Protection in all forms when it comes to your financial life is crucial.
