Texas residents who are getting remarried in their 50s or 60s may find that completing a prenuptial agreement may be in their best interest. People who get remarried later in life are likely to have accumulated homes, retirement assets and businesses. They may also have children from a previous marriage for whom they would like to ensure will receive assets that are intended for them if the new marriage ends in divorce.
People who use a prenup for a second marriage can detail how they will support themselves financially throughout the marriage. Also, a plan can be included for when retirement assets are to be used. The responsibility for paying for household expenses can also be detailed in the prenup and can be proportional to each spouse's assets or income. The in-depth discussions and the written commitment in the prenup regarding these issues can be very helpful for couples.
