Best-laid plans

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.

Best-laid plans: Image 1 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.”
