You never know the surprises life can hold. And it can be extremely exciting when you find yourself in a serious relationship when you are over 50 years of age. Not only is meeting someone special revitalizing, but you also have a wealth of experience that you can draw from to make your new relationship stronger than any you have had before. So, if you are planning on marrying your new partner, you likely have an idea or two on how to make things work better than in any previous relationship.

Also, at this point in your life, you may have acquired significant assets. Even if you know in your heart that your impending marriage is the best choice you have ever made, it is still a very good idea to protect yourself financially. Therefore, you may want to seriously consider the advantages of creating a prenuptial agreement.

But don’t think of a prenuptial agreement as a means of protecting only your personal interests. If you have a family from a previous marriage, you can create terms that can help ensure that your children and grandchildren receive their fair share as beneficiaries of your estate.

A prenuptial agreement is not just about protecting your personal interests; it can also serve to empower your children and grandchildren as well. And if this sounds like a good idea to you, you may want to contact an experienced family law attorney who can help you craft an agreement that serves both your and your soon-to-be spouse’s needs.
