The Wedding, The Marriage, The Marriage Contract.
Your big day is arriving and everyone is in a panic. Have the flowers been ordered, will the dress be ready on time, oh my gosh we forgot to order a cake! Well, of course you didn’t really but the thing with a marriage is – everyone gets carried away. There’s a lot to think about and to get excited about but there’s one thing you just cannot forget. A marriage contract.
A marriage contract is the formal agreement that is drawn up between the two people getting married, between you and your loved one. It is vital that you have a marriage contract, and it is vital that your marriage contract is drawn up by professionals. It is quick and easy to arrange, does not cost a lot of money and will see you through the good times and the bad times. A marriage contract will be filed away in your drawer and you probably won’t look at it for years, but if you need it, it’s there, it’s binding and it has your best interests at heart.
