A recent YouGov survey of 2,000 UK adults has shown how female Generation Zers are keen to sign-up to practical prenups before walking down the aisle.
Commissioned by national law firm Stephensons Solicitors LLP with offices in St Helens and Warrington, the survey showed that 42 per cent of women aged 18-24 would likely sign a prenup ahead of marriage or civil partnership compared to 36 per cent of men of the same age.
Amanda Rimmer, a partner in the family law division at Stephensons Solicitors LLP, said: “The stigma of consulting a solicitor ahead of getting hitched has long ago disappeared. Generation Z has grown up influenced by celebrity culture and takes a realistic approach to marriage or civil partnerships. For many couples a pre-nuptial agreement is now as necessary as booking a wedding band.”
If the worse were to happen, as Amanda says, “a prenup can help to protect you and your partner from greater financial and emotional stress.” She continues: “Deciding to sign-up to this kind of agreement is a very personal decision and one you should make as a couple. I’d always recommend instructing a specialist family law solicitor who has experience in this field and finalising your agreement well in advance of your ceremony.”
