While there is sometimes a negative stigma attached to prenuptial agreements, there are many reasons that any couple might need one before tying the knot. South Carolina residents might like to know about a survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers that found that millennials are entering into one comparatively frequently.
Slightly more than half of the 1,600 AAML members that were surveyed said that more millennials were asking for prenups than before, and 62 percent of members thought that this change happened within the last three years. Prenups help protect individual property acquired before a marriage. Since people tend to marry at older ages than before, millennials have time to accumulate some wealth that they may wish to keep safe with a prenup.
